DAYS TO GO
One more big step to go!
Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait! Just one more step to go. Here’s a quick update on our project progress:
- TM will be sponsoring a broadband service to be provided for the students to access the internet.
- Contractors and staff put on stand-by to await green-light from authorities
- Currently obtaining final approvals from multi-level authorities, after which the classroom construction will commence
Once given approval, the classroom is expected to be completed by March 2017.
You will hear from us soon!
A kind Malaysian.
100% Project received further backing from a kind Malaysian to help build an actual, physical classroom instead of a container classroom. A physical concrete classroom is more durable and sustainable, plus will provide a more conducive learning environment for the students.
We are in the midst of revising the initial blueprint to a concrete classroom. Additional safety features like emergency exits and wheelchair ramps will be implemented to accommodate these special needs students.
These are exciting times! Anything can happen if you have faith in whatever you’re doing.

Here’s the hope!
Cikgu Tan specialises in teaching special needs students in a high school at Perak. He has 64 special needs students (some wheelchair-bound) that face difficulty accessing the ICT classroom located at the third floor.
Special ICT classes have to be arranged for these students depending on the availability of teachers and rooms, resulting in these classes being conducted for them only once a month.
Cikgu Tan approached us with a brilliant idea of building a classroom by using a shipping container. “If they can’t access the third floor, we’ll bring the classroom to them,” he said.
webe community backed the project to provide these special needs students a classroom they can access to learn the fundamentals of ICT.
The image shown above is the initial blueprint. Together, we’re working to bring hope to these students, and the future generation.

"We were blown away when we realised that teachers are doing so much for their students with the little that they have. Imagine the great things they could do if they had all the resources they need. Cikgu Tan needs your help. His passion and service to his community deserves our support. Please help his dream come true, and pledge your webits!"
