Project Hope Bloggers compilation


Date: 17th May 2013
Venue: Rumah Anak-Anak Yatim Tambunan, Sabah

120 children were given the opportunity to draw, to paint and to colour their aspirations of what they want to be when they grow up as creatively as possible as part of 40 selected children who will fly to Kuala Lumpur for the official launch of Project "Hope" between 10th – 12th June 2013.

One main reason why a charity home in Sabah was selected to be part of Project HOPE is in view of the findings from United Nations that reported "Rural areas in Sabah is not on track to achieve the aggregate MDG objective of halving poverty as compared to Malaysia in general where it fell from 17 per cent in 1990 to 8 per cent in year 2000 and below 4 per cent in 2009." Project "Hope" focuses on the United Nations' MDG 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger and MDG2: Achieve Universal Primary Education.

The children aged between 8 and 12 years old were also treated to 3 days of fun activities and unforgettable experiences, from playing football with professional footballers and coaches (courtesy of Dream Asia, Asian Football Federation), free medical check-ups courtesy of Columbia Asia Hospital, Setapak and tours of Kuala Lumpur to meeting world-renown Malaysian idols.

Together, they will express their "Hope" through craft. A selection of the 100 art pieces by the children will be auctioned to participants of the World Marketing Summit Malaysia (September 28 to 30, 2013), with all proceeds channeled back to the children's homes. Additionally, the three children with the highest bids on their art pieces will receive a fixed deposit in their names which will be made available to them when they reach 18 years of age. The winner will receive RM5,000, the runner up RM2,000 and second runner-up RM1,000. WMSM2013 will continue to check in on these children, following up on their development as they grow on their journeys.
