In line with the Lions Club International designated projects, the Lioness Club of Ipoh launched a special Education Project at SJK (T) Ladang Changkat Kinding, Tanjung Rambutan recently.
The school has an enrolment of 41 pupils from Standard 1 to 6. President Lioness, Sakuntala Rajadurai told Ipoh Echo that this particular school was chosen because it was in dire need of a library as its existing one was in a bad condition.
On hand to welcome the Lions group were the headmistress Mrs Vasanthara Devi and her senior staff. Also present were club members Lioness Datin Thavamani Thambipillay, Lioness Annie Arul, Zone 11 chairperson Lion Ong Teng Boon, Lions Club of Ipoh President Lion Raymond Lau and Lion Liaison Lion Ho Choon Seng.
A cupboard with a total of 260 books, encyclopaedias, dictionaries and storybooks in English and Malay language was donated to the library. This would be an on-going project in which more books would be continuously added by the members.
The club members also presented a variety of biscuits, sweets and chocolates to the children.
Running on the theme ‘Reading is the Pulse of Knowledge’, the club hopes that it would motivate the pupils as well as their friends and family to read.
