Malaysia – Nourish
We work with Nourish Malaysia, a small Malaysian NGO, to provide aid to a Government School located in the PPR housing area of Damansara Damai. PPR is defined as a Government Programme to provide affordable housing for squatters and citizens with low income. The majority of the students enrolled come from families living in the surrounding PPR housing community. In 2019, the official enrolment is 1,041 students divided into 3 groups housed in 3 separate wings. 98 Pre-schoolers, 897 students for regular studies and 46 students for special needs assisted study. We currently continue to support this Special Needs Students with monthly Dry foods for cooking/life skills classes, office supplies for education purposes, development tools/sensory toys, and monthly raw food (basic food groups) for home nutrition for 5 families in exchange for their children’s attendance and excellence at the school.
In light of the burden brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, Fondation Rolf Schnyder and Nourish have partnered to provide groceries and other essential items to the residents in the PPR housing community.
