Melta helps boost literacy in remote schools

TEACHERS participating in the Malaysian English Language Teachers Association’s (Melta) recent annual conference in Kuching have helped purchase story books and stationary for rural children in Sarawak and Sabah.

The donations under Melta’s Melt-a-Heart Programme were given to four schools involved in a research programme with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) in Kota Samarahan.

The schools are Sekolah Kebangsaan Bario, Sekolah Menengah Bario and Sekolah Kebangsaan Long Lamei, which are all in Sarawak, and Sekolah Kebangsaan Pulau Larapan, in eastern Sabah.

On the final day of the conference, Melta president Dr Gnanakumaran Subramaniam of Nottingham University Malaysia presented the donations to a representative of the Unimas Centre of Excellence in Rural Informatics, Dr Soubakaveathi Rethinasamy.

Melta’s book donation drive is an ongoing initiative that its members are passionate about.

The collection of money for books and stationary for needy children represents Melta’s commitment to raising literacy in children in Malaysia, especially those from disadvantaged and marginalised communities.

The books were handed over to school principals and community leaders in late June and early July this year.

The books are in place in the school libraries and the stationary supplies are distributed to classrooms at the remote locations.
