The Ten Ringgit Club Bhd was set up on 11th August, 2011 to address the educational needs of marginalized children in northern Sarawak. Many children are deprived of education due to extreme poverty and lack of proper documents. Besides providing them basic literacy and numeracy skills, we have a special aim to improve the standard of English.
Individually, each of us may be unable to fund the efforts required to make a dramatic impact on the quality of life of our underprivileged children. However we can make a difference if we pool our resources together. RM10 from many people, instead of thousands from a few- that is the strategy of the Ten Ringgit Club- to improve the lives of these children, RM10 at a time.
We keep our operation very simple and straightforward. There is no administrative staff or expenses as every task is carried out by ourselves. Volunteers do not receive allowances. Only monies spent that are directly related to the children are claimed such as rental for premise, teacher’s salaries, food, printing and stationery, books, educational materials, children’s medical expenses and utilities.
Our learning center, Noah's Ark Kindergarten is situated at:
Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club
We have trained teachers to teach literacy and numeracy skills to children aged between 4 to 18 years. No fees are charged. We also provide snacks and all stationery free of charge.
