REGIS HIGH SCHOOL, NEW YORK
For 2 consecutive years, Samuel and his brother flew to KL during their summer breaks to teach at ZRCLC. Undeterred by COVID, the 11th year grader is now part of our online teaching crew. "The kids constantly amaze and inspire me. I can now engage them year round from the other side of the world. I am excited to continue being a part of such an incredible cause"
With the current COVID restrictions, our learning centre is only open full time for our pre-schoolers (3-6 year old). As of 7 February 2021, we have been advised by UNHCR, that will it is still unclear as to when in-person classes for our older children can resume.
Hence to ensure that the rest of our children continue to be fully engaged, we have embarked on our online program for our children
Introducing ZRCLC 2.0
Since September 2020 we have introduced video conferencing to supplement our teaching.
Our small online classes will allow for more focus and attention for each child. It will also allow us to cast a wider net for volunteers who can be anyone from around world!
Education Sets needed
Based on our past experience of requesting for used devices, we have decided that it be best that we purchase new entry level laptops/tablets to run the program
The estimated cost of each Education Set (tablet + headset & software) is approximately RM800 (SGD $270) . Currently we still need another 8 sets for the remaining of our students
If you would like to contribute towards the purchase of a set please

Like his brother, Daniel too taught at ZRCLC during his summer breaks "Having witnessed personally the students’ passion for learning despite of their lack of means, I am excited to be able to continue working with them remotely. I had a ton of fun interacting with the children, and in return, I have learned a lot from them"
INTERESTED IN BEING AN ONLINE VOLUNTEER?
If you have some free time in the comfort of your home to help teach our children online, we would love to hear from you.
