Bringing Out the Sun for the Children at Yayasan Chow Kit’s Pusat Aktiviti Kanak-Kanak
In 2017, Tune Protect organized its 2nd ‘Sponsor a Kid Back to School’ especially for the ‘at-risk’ children of Yayasan Chow Kit’s (YCK) Pusat Aktiviti Kanak-Kanak (PAKK). Aged between 7 to 12 years old, many of them have been through a lot as they live in an area that has earned a notorious reputation as a hotspot for illicit activities. Most of the have seen and heard more than the average child and adult! PAKK provides these children with a haven conducive for learning, character building activities and positive interaction with their peers and carers.
A Ray of Sunshine
Tune Protect stepped in to bring ‘a ray of sunshine’ back into their lives with the sponsorship of 2 complete sets of school uniforms for all 57 children specially purchased from Outpost Uniform.
YCK Trustee His Royal Highness Tunku Major Dato’ Seri Zain Al-‘Abidin Tuanku Muhriz graciously hosted the ceremony and witnessed our Group CEO Razman Hafidz Abu Zarim presenting the mock cheque to Yayasan Chow Kit’s Chief Operating Officer Ananti Rajasingam.

In addition to sponsoring school uniforms and in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 promoting Good Health and Well-Being, Tune Protect literally ‘stopped the rain from falling’ by plugging the major roof leakage which severely affected the center’s classrooms, pantry and staircase with a full sponsorship for urgent repairs. In doing so, the repairs also enabled the center to resume educational activities and lessons, in line with our mission to support quality education.
Sunshine After the Rain
After the cheque presentation ceremony, the children mingled happily with everyone in their new uniforms, just like 'sunshine after the rain'. Tune Protect volunteers also distributed neatly packed balanced meals comprising of delicious noodles, sausages, eggs, french fries, sandwiches and drinks to the grateful children whose smiles for the cameras came naturally.
