Healthcare: 3-D Printed Prosthetics for Free

Prosthetics are essential to ­anyone who has lost a limb but the price often places it out of the reach of many. The network of 3D printer ­owners willing to pitch in for the project now spans the country, with some in Kuala Lumpur, Negri Sembilan, Johor Baru, Terengganu, and Sabah.

Instead of just being gifted the limb, the child and his or her community would have to make a symbolic payment by collecting 3kg of plastic, or about 200 plastic bottles. 

if you know someone who needs a prosthetic limb or wants to donate to the project, visit www.lend-a-hand.org/contact or reach out to Sujana at sujana.rejab@gmail.com.

Dignity for Children Foundation (DCF)

Education Programmes:

Dignity for Children Foundation operates 3 main education programmes:

1.    Early Childhood Education Programme (ECEP)

2.    Primary Education Programme (PEP)

3.    Secondary Education Programme (SEP)

 

Training Programmmes:

It does not matter how many pencils, papers, books, curriculum, facilities or technology you place in front of a child; learning, inspiration, and transformation is not possible without the commitment of a devoted and well trained teacher.

At Dignity, we believe that the role of a teacher is not to simply transfer knowledge, butto encourage, inspire, facilitate and guide children through the process of learning. That is the reason why we take the training of teachers seriously.

In order for teachers to be equipped, they need to be trained in more than just basic curriculum areas. Training in the art of pedagogy and life-skills, with special emphasis on the needs of children affected by poverty, is an essential core to the development of well-rounded, productive teachers.

This training takes an enormous amount of effort, time and commitment from both the trainers and the trainees. However, its importance can never be understated as, the effects of a teacher, whether good or bad, last a lifetime.
