Children Provision Charity 2010

I founded and organized a charity back in 2010, but I have never blogged about it before. My committees organized the second version of Child-Pro in April 2011, but what I’m going to blog about today is the one I organized with many other amazing friends in 2010.

It was the first version, and there was no history of the charity event, which made it a difficult task, but we were able to complete it. Before I start writing about it, here are some facts about Child-Pro 2010: I managed to successfully get the green light to collaborate with the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), which donated RM10,000. Another collaborator was JKMM (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat Malaysia), which provided us with names of the needy in schools. Another notable contributor is from Motorola, who sponsored us with 8,000 RM for the events.

We raised about 35,000 RM monetary and 20,000 RM non-monetary, adding up to 55,706 RM. The total cost of the event was about 11,000 RM; the remainder was distributed to the beneficiaries of Child-Pro. We support 14 organizations and one individual receiver. Each organization receives about 1,500 RM (this varies according to their need and participation) and another 5,000 RM goes to the individual recipient. The flagship events that we have organized are community visits, exhibitions and charity concerts.

With about 14 organizations exhibiting, including UNICEF Malaysia, it proved to be successful in spreading awareness among UTP students. For the concert, the Malaysian Idol Danell Lee, Vic (Malaysian Idol second runner-up) and the Malay artist Liyana Fizi joined us. That night, an audience of about 1,000 people packed Chancellor hall. None of this could have been achieved without the collaboration of the entire 73-member committee.This post is all about facts and statistics. Part two will be about the struggle we went through to make this happen.

Children Provision Charity was featured officially on the university’s website too. You can check it out here.
