With the current COVID restrictions, our learning centre is only open full time for our pre-schoolers (4-6 year old). An arrangement, we have been advised by UNHCR, that will remain until early next year.
Hence to ensure that the rest of our children continue to be fully engaged, we will embark on online learning.
Introducing ZRCLC 2.0
Come September 2020 we will introduce 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 laptops, we feel that it be best that we purchase new entry level laptops to get this program off the ground.
The estimated cost of each Education Set (laptop, headset & software) is approximately RM1,999 (SGD $680) We would like to appeal for a total of 10 sets to get ZRCLC 2.0 off the ground.
If you would like to contribute towards the purchase of a set please
