We keep talking about the importance of children education and what not but are you aware that 49.2% of Orang Asli are illiterate? Statistic shows that more than 25% Orang Asli children drop-out in primary and high school. This alarming findings shows that children and youth from Orang Asli backgrounds are missing out on crucial education which will bring them out of poverty. How do we help to instill education to the young Orang Asli community? This is also what Clarins Malaysia has been working towards, together with SOLS 24/7 Malaysia, an award- winning humanitarian organization dedicated to serve, educate and empower rural and urban communities across the country.
The collaboration between Clarins and SOLS 24/7 begins last year 2015 whereas they had developed a Precision Teaching Programme to support the education of Orang Asli children at the SOLS-BMF Gombak Community Centre. This year the partnership continues and a brand new Learning Together Programme will be rolled out. This program is especially developed and tailored to the individual and developmental needs of 25-30 Orang Asli children in the SOLS-BMF Gombak Community Centre, age between 7 to 12 years old. It will highlights two types of classes which focus on fluency training and soft skills.
Clarins hope to raise RM60,000 through Clarins We Care fund raising from 1st November 2016 till 31st December 2016. You can be a part of this charity program by purchasing a Tonic Body Balm (200ml) or Eau Ressourcante Silky-Smooth Body Cream (200ml) at only RM60 each. All proceeds from the sales will go towards funding the education programme for Orang Asli children. Available at all Clarins Skin Spas and counters nationwide.
