No one must be left behind in education and economic enabling opportunities!
Our mission is to provide equal access to education that will be operated remotely to students stricken with all forms of disabilities and medical conditions which are tutored and coached by trained employed Adults stricken with all forms of disabilities and medical conditions.
Since 2016, our Social Enterprise has collaborated with our nation, Malaysia's largest education content and resource provider to renovate and innovate their existing Virtual and Mobile Tuition Platform to be 100% accessible friendly for the Disabled students and tutors to use within their comfort zone safely without barriers. The Gap in education and economic enabling opportunities and equalities has left many of this marginalised and needy PWD communities trapped in poverty.
But now, more than ever, the Digital Age can transform this landscape thanks to the easy availability of accessible technology on computers and mobile devices that has even enabled the Blind and Deaf people to navigate around this space easily within their comfort levels i.e to learn and earn without barriers. The wide coverage and usage of Wifi and Mobile have further enhanced equalities for all. Technology is truly inclusive and our work is to collaborate with existing and proven digital platforms, be it in education or digital commerce i.e to renovate and innovate their platforms to be 100% accessible for the PWDs to operate and use. Our project equips and enables these PWD students and adults to both learn and earn equally remotely even in Pandemic times such as the Covid-19 now, in meeting 3 of UN SDGs of equalities in education and economic enabling opportunities leading to Zero Poverty!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I was a former Entrepreneur interested only to enrich myself but then I lost my eyesight to Glaucoma 12 years ago aged 45. Since turning Blind, I was transformed to be a Social Worker, Activist and Entrepreneur to enrich others especially the often marginalised PWD children and youths. I want to inspire these PWD children and youths to look beyond their disabilities and that they too can be a contributor rather than be seen as a burden to society and their families.
