GIFT EDUCATION SPONSORSHIP SCHEME
GIFT Education Sponsorship Scheme (previously known as Pu Men Children Aid Scheme) is an important YBBM welfare project set up in 1989 aimed at providing financial or material assistance to children from poor families, so that they can complete their studies without hindrances.
The students who need assistance are recommended by various Buddhist organizations. After the selection team is reviewed, a monthly assistance fund of RM50 (full year) will be arranged as a tuition subsidy.
In 2020 this year, YBBM sponsored 75 students from poor families. Each student receives RM600 annual aid (RM50 educational aid per month). We are convinced that children need to receive education, as it is through education that they can improve their chances of getting out of poverty.
