1) SJBA is organising the 13th Annual Educare Program in SJBA in aid of needy students, providing them with school items to start the new school term. It is expected that about 500 needy students in Subang Jaya/USJ/Sunway/Sungei Way and rural areas will receive the school items on 8 December 2018 (9am to 12pm). Each student will receive a full set of school items which consists of school bags, shoes, books, stationary, etc. which costs about RM108.00. The amount may not be a lot but it is a simple yet significant gesture of ours to show our care and concern to poor students. We hope that through this simple but sincere gesture, the students are motivated to study better and achieve academic success and eventually success in life.
This noble task can be achieved with the continuous support of our members and devotees. If you wish to sponsor one or more students, please contact Sis. Lily 03-56348181, 56315299.The Educare Program will be held in SJBA Shrine Hall on 8 December 2019, 9am to 12pm. Hence the Sunday Puja on that day will be off.
