Charity And Cheers At The Bazaar

Bazaars are oftentimes a wealth of fun with all the delectable delicacies, odds and ends, trinkets, and colours to choose from. 
But the recent charity bazaar at Aurora Place Bukit Jalil was more than that. It is said that children should start their financial education early, although primary schools and kindergartens rarely have that.

Therefore, all the children from the HiiChiiKok Foundation pounced on the golden opportunity when it was known that a financial class would be conducted at this particular charity bazaar.

There, the children were given a 30-minute talk on financial management with illustrations to keep the class interesting. 

Since they were of a tender age, the lessons were kept simple but no less important. Theory and practice came alongside each other that day, for the children were given vouchers right after it ended.

The cheerful cherubs spread out to browse the vast array of merchandise offered at the bazaar. Cake rolls, Chinese paus, and New Year tidbits dominated the place.

It was also akin to a spa day with the many shampoos, lotions and fragrance-related products on offer. Beyond shopping, the children were treated to various performances from drums, and solo singing performances to the lion dance that heralded the approaching Chinese New Year.

Those who bear witness to this event would assume it to be just another shopping spree. But it was a wealth of joy and knowledge at the charity bazaar, with the children emerging from it all the wiser.

This fun-filled day is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

慈善与欢乐相伴的集市

集市往往是一场乐趣的盛宴,琳琅满目的美食佳肴、琐碎物品、小玩意儿和五彩斑斓的色彩供人选择。然而,最近在武吉加里尔的奥罗拉广场举办的慈善集市不仅如此。有人说,孩子应该从小开始接受金融教育,尽管小学和幼儿园很少有这方面的课程。因此,当得知这个特别的慈善集市将进行金融课程时,来自HiiChiiKok基金会的所有孩子都抓住了这个难得的机会。在那里,孩子们接受了一场30分钟的金融管理讲座,图示生动,使课堂充满趣味。由于他们年幼,所以课程内容简单但同样重要。理论和实践同日而语,因为课程结束后孩子们立即获得了代金券。欢快的天使们四处浏览着集市上提供的大量商品。蛋糕卷、中式包子和新年小吃占据了主导地位。

这也像是一场水疗日,因为有许多洗发水、护肤乳液和香水相关产品供选择。除了购物,孩子们还欣赏到各种表演,从鼓乐、独唱表演到舞狮迎接春节的表演。那些目睹这一事件的人可能认为这只是又一个购物狂欢。但这是一个充满欢乐和知识的慈善集市,孩子们从中收获了更多智慧。这充满乐趣的一天只是孩子们每周参与的许多丰富活动之一。欲了解更多关于HiiChiiKok基金会的信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

No better way to breach cultural differences than with fashion, good food 

Coming from a multicultural nation, it is common for our society to be plagued by racism. But when we observe children of different races playing together, we will notice the absence of this pernicious problem.

Racism is a learned trait, and with that said, the HiiChiiKok Foundation is doing its part to instil unity among the people, best done at a tender age.

Nine children and the staff were invited to a dinner to celebrate the birthday of YM Tengku Puteri Puan Sri Rosmawini binti Y.A.M. Tengku Dato’ Muiz Shah who is the President of the Chinese Cheongsam Association of Malaysia.

Now that the famed Chinese traditional dress is being mentioned, it is unsurprising that all the ladies came to the event at ICC Pudu dressed in cheongsam, as was the dress code. 

Everyone was treated to a sumptuous Chinese dinner, from steamed fish, lotus leaf rice, fried prawns coated with nestum, mushroom stew and more. These came in stages to keep the quality interaction alive.

But it was also a feast for the eyes as much as the tongue for the event was punctuated with various performances.

There came a performer who dazzled the crowd with the magical act of changing the colours of her mask, right in plain sight. This was followed by a solo and group singing performance.

It was already deep into the night but the event kept on giving. Every child received a gift pack consisting of chocolates, candles, candies and an ang pow valued at RM10 each.

For those who observe the event, they may assume that it was merely a night of enjoyment. But the lesson learned by the children was a subtle one. 

Joy and happiness is a universal feeling shared by all, regardless of skin colour. This fun-filled event is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis.

尚和美食媒介,无疑是弥合文化差异的最佳途径。

作为一个多元文化的国家,我们的社会往往深受种族主义之苦。但当我们观察到不同种族的孩子们一同玩耍时,我们会注意到这个有害问题的消失。

种族主义是一种习得的特质,因此HiiChiiKok基金会正在尽其所能在人们中灌输团结,最好是在儿童时期进行。

九名儿童和工作人员受邀参加了一场晚宴,庆祝由马来西亚华裔旗袍协会主席Tengku Puteri Puan Sri Rosmawini主持的生日派对。

现在提到了著名的中国传统服饰,毫不奇怪的是所有女士都按照旗袍的着装规定出席了这个在ICC Pudu举办的活动。

每个人都品尝到了丰盛的中餐,包括清蒸鱼、荷叶饭、奶香虾仁、香菇炖菜等。为了保持高质量的互动,这些菜品分阶段上桌。

然而,这也是一场视觉和味觉的盛宴,因为活动中穿插了各种表演。

有一位表演者以变换面具颜色的神奇技艺惊艳了观众,就在众目睽睽之下。接着是独唱和合唱表演。

虽然已经深夜,但活动仍在持续。每个孩子都收到了一个礼物包,包括巧克力、蜡烛、糖果和一个价值10令吉的红包。

对于观察这个活动的人来说,他们可能认为这只是一个愉快的夜晚。但孩子们学到的教训却是微妙的。

快乐是一种普遍的感觉,不分肤色。这个充满乐趣的活动只是孩子们每周参与的众多丰富活动之一。

Building more than sand castles at Port Dickson

For many people, a vacation by the beach is all about leaving the hectic world behind to embrace the wonders of nature. But for the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation, it takes on a whole new world of meaning.

All the children and staff, with the exception of a select few, participated in the activity. The weekday was chosen so the beach was relatively quiet and free from holidayers, just the perfect time for a wealth of activities.

The children went right into the water, which was just fine that day. Those who observed their antics can all agree that the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation were born to swim. 

But beyond the sound of laughter and fun, vigilance was maintained at all times. The older children were taught responsibility by acting as mini mentors to their younger friends. 

Safe to say, this was a great bonding session between the kids and their guardians, and everyone had a splashing good time. Once they had all expended their energy frolicking at the beach, they then returned to the shores for a simple yet rejuvenating picnic. The meals were lovingly prepared by the staff prior.

Plastic forks and spoons made a play at the beach and paper plates were handed around. Although everyone had a great appetite, they were careful not to litter the place. All rubbish was duly collected by the children and disposed of accordingly. While people are building sand castles by the beach, the kids are building character.

Later that evening, they would retire for a one-night stay at a semi-detached home with a quaint view overlooking the beach. When all the fun and festivity has finally settled down, all that remains is the lesson they will take to heart.

Even before their departure on the morrow, the children were required to work as a team to clean up their lodging. It is a stark reminder that regardless of time and place, their civic duties must always be at the forefront. 

This fun-filled event is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

对于许多人来说,在海滩度假意味着摆脱繁忙的世界,拥抱大自然的奇迹。但对于HiiChiiKok基金会的儿童来说,这有着全新的意义。

所有儿童和工作人员,除了一小部分例外,都参与了这次活动。工作日被选择,使海滩相对安静,没有度假者,正是进行丰富活动的绝佳时机。

孩子们直接跳入了当天的水中,天气十分宜人。观察他们滑稽的动作的人都会同意,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们天生就是游泳高手。

然而,在欢笑和乐趣的背后,随时保持警惕。年长的孩子通过担任年幼朋友的小导师来学习责任。

可以说,这是孩子们与他们的监护人之间一次极好的团结时光。一旦他们在海滩上尽情玩耍后,他们便返回海滩进行一次简单而令人振奋的野餐。餐食是工作人员事先精心准备的。

塑料叉子和勺子在沙滩上玩耍,纸盘被分发给每个人。尽管每个人都胃口大开,他们仍小心不在这个地方乱扔垃圾。所有垃圾都被孩子们妥善收集并妥善处理。当人们在海滩上建造沙堡时,孩子们在建造性格。

傍晚时分,他们将退宿一晚,入住一个俯瞰海滩的半独立住宅。当所有的欢乐和狂欢终于平息下来时,留下的是他们将铭记的教训。

甚至在第二天启程之前,儿童们就需要团队协作清理住宿。这是一个醒目的提醒,无论时间和地点,他们的公民责任都必须始终放在首位。

这次充满乐趣的活动只是儿童每周参与的众多丰富活动之一。有关Hiichiikok基金会的更多信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

All that fun and joy before Christmas.

Christmas has always been a time of great joy and feasting. But let us be honest. An ideal life is one where every day is a blessing. At HiiChiiKok Foundation, the children had a series of celebrations building up to the climax which was Christmas itself.

From home visits, and carolling to partying, the spirit of Christmas was strong throughout the entire month of December. One such event was the Sprinkles & Joyful Day, organised by IKEA and held at IKEA Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

It is a celebration of coming together, cherishing loved ones and making lasting memories for the coming Christmas. 20 children and one staff member participated in the event.

They had ample opportunities to express their creativity that day. The event started out with them decorating their very own Ginger Heart cookies with coloured icing sugar, all sponsored by IKEA.

Rarely do we get to eat our artwork, but that is the case for the deserving children who were so meticulous in their efforts. Seated together in groups, it was all very messy but the wonderful kind. Laughter filled the air and the tables were littered with breadcrumbs.

Their busy hands are about to get busier. Once the Ginger Heart cookies had been prettied up, it was time to assemble the Advent Calendar. Those came in cardboard, requiring quite a degree of thought and patience to assemble.

But once the calendars were up, everyone could see that it was worth the trouble. Now the children can place their little candies into the folded cardboard slots to mark the approaching Christmas.

They say that Santa rewards the good kids with presents. So it comes as no surprise when the creative children of HiiChiiKok Foundation were later showered with gifts for their efforts.

This fun-filled evening is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/




圣诞节之前的所有欢愉和快乐


圣诞节一直是一个充满欢乐和盛宴的时光。但让我们坦诚相待。理想的生活是每一天都是一个祝福的生活。在HiiChiiKok基金会,孩子们经历了一系列的庆祝活动,最终达到了圣诞节的高潮。

从家访、颂歌到派对,整个十二月份都充满了圣诞的氛围。其中一个活动是由宜家组织的“洒落与欢愉之日”,在宜家Damansara,八打灵再也分店举办。

这是一个团聚、珍惜亲人并为即将到来的圣诞创造持久记忆的庆祝活动。有20名儿童和一名工作人员参与了这个活动。

他们在那一天有充分的机会表达他们的创造力。活动以他们用宜家赞助的有色糖霜装饰他们自己的姜饼心曲奇开始。

我们很少有机会吃我们的艺术品,但对于那些如此细致入微的孩子来说,这是一个例外。他们坐在一起,一切都很混乱但美好。笑声充满了空气,桌子上布满了面包屑。

他们忙碌的双手即将更加繁忙。姜饼心曲奇一旦装饰好,就到了组装降临节日历的时候。这些日历是用硬纸板制成的,需要一定的思考和耐心来组装。

但一旦日历挂起来,每个人都能看到这样的付出是值得的。现在孩子们可以把小糖果放进折叠的纸板槽中,标记着圣诞节的临近。

他们说圣诞老人会用礼物奖励好孩子。所以当HiiChiiKok基金会的富有创造力的孩子们后来因为他们的努力而被淋漓尽致地赠予礼物时,这一点也不奇怪。

这充满乐趣的夜晚只是孩子们每周参与的众多丰富活动之一。有关Hiichiikok基金会的更多信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

Illuminating Children’s Rights With The Light Of Deepavali

Deepavali has always captured the imagination with the many clay lamps that Hindus light to illuminate the night. But when this festival is celebrated alongside World Children’s Day, sparks are bound to fly.

Several weeks back, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation attended the Deepavali And World Children’s Day Celebration Dinner, organised by the Budimas Charitable Foundation. 

Other orphanages and homes were equally invited, but the children of Hiichiikok Foundation were given the honour of unofficially officiating the charity dinner with an opening performance.

About 21 children ranging from seven to 15 years old went up the stage to deliver a smashing Jai Ho dance. They looked radiant in their traditional Indian dresses of bright purple, red, beige and blue.

Then there was a solo dance performance by Dimple who amidst cheers and applause, entranced the audience with her lively moves. When they returned to their tables, a vivacious clown came up to entertain them with hand-crafted balloons in all shapes and sizes.

Once it was time to stop clowning around, the children were given coloured papers to create a wish card in conjunction with World Children’s Day, which celebrates children’s rights.

Flowers, hearts and origami swans were quickly formed by their deft fingers. These were then adhered to a single manila cardboard to unify 

their collective artwork.

Then there was the Kolam colouring competition in conjunction with Deepavali. While everyone was busy sprinkling coloured rice flour, the judges made their rounds.

Delightfully, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation won second place in the contest which was judged together with the wishing card contest.

Later on, food was distributed in the form of roti canai, curried rice and barbecued chicken. It is safe to say that there were no hungry tummies that day. Before concluding the event, goody bags were also distributed to the children so that their smiles remained even after returning home.

This enriching event is one of the many that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

照亮儿童权利的屠妖节之光

屠妖节一直以来都以千百盏印度教徒点亮的黏土灯而引起人们的遐想。但当这个节日与世界儿童日一同庆祝时,火花注定会迸发。

几周前,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们参加了由Budimas慈善基金组织的屠妖节和世界儿童日庆祝晚宴。

其他孤儿院和家庭也受邀参加,但HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们荣幸地在开场表演中非正式主持了慈善晚宴。

大约有21名年龄在七到十五岁之间的孩子们走上舞台,进行了一场惊艳的“胜利之歌”舞蹈。 他们身着传统的印度服装,色彩鲜艳,有紫色、红色、米色和蓝色。

接着是Dimple的独舞表演,在欢呼和掌声中,她以活泼的舞步迷住了观众。当他们回到座位时,一个充满活力的小丑走上前用各种形状和大小的手工气球取悦他们。

当儿童们停止嬉笑时,他们被赠送有彩纸,以制作与世界儿童日相关的许愿卡,以庆祝儿童的权利。

他们娴熟的手指迅速制作出花朵、心形和折纸天鹅。这些作品随后被粘贴到一张马尼拉纸板上,统一了他们的集体艺术品。

接下来是与屠妖节相关的Kolam着色比赛。 在每个人都忙着撒上彩色米粉的时候,评委们开始评审。

令人愉快的是,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们在与许愿卡比赛一同评选的比赛中获得了第二名。

随后,以煎饼、咖喱饭和烤鸡形式分发了食物。可以肯定的是,那天没有一个饥饿的胃。在结束活动之前,礼品袋也分发给孩子们,这样他们在回家后的笑容依然灿烂。

这个丰富多彩的活动是儿童每周参与的众多活动之一。有关HiiChiiKok基金会的更多信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

Creativity Shines Brighter Than The Moon This Mid-Autumn Festival

Creativity has always been the boundless energy that fuels our progress. But more than that, there is great joy in watching it develop in a child who seeks to understand the world around them.

It is this energy that will help them develop into well-learned individuals. Hence the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation did not miss the opportunity to exercise their creativity in the passing Mid Autumn Festival celebration, organised by the Touching Lives Club.

A total of 34 children, 5 caretakers and 4 volunteers took part in the event which was held at Pavilion Bukit Jalil. It was a “flourful” time, with the children handling and moulding coloured flour with their gloved hands.

Within moments, the table tops were filled with balls of flour, all ready to be pressed into the ubiquitous mooncake forms that we all knew and loved.

These adorable and delectable art pieces were then kept in dainty red boxes which they could then bring home as a memento.

But the mooncake festival is never complete with the mooncakes alone. With that said, the children also tried their hands at making the traditional lanterns that lighted the night alongside the full moon.

Cardboard pieces were meticulously cut into frames, with some pieces folded over to assume a cube shape. Then transparent yellow plastic is stretched over these cutouts to complete the lantern.

Creativity was not the only thing they expressed that day. The children also took part in the lantern procession that led to a stage where they sang songs about the mooncake festival.

This certainly helped boost their confidence since they had to perform in front of a crowd of cheering spectators. If anyone had the mind to look up, they would have noticed the moon shining bright that night. But we are certain that their youth, passion and creativity shines brighter.

This fun-filled night is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

创意在这个中秋佳节比月亮更为灿烂

创意一直是推动我们进步的无穷能量。然而,更重要的是,在一个寻求理解周围世界的孩子身上看到创意发展所带来的巨大喜悦。

正是这种能量将帮助他们成长为学富五车的个体。因此,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们不放过了通过Touching Lives Club组织的中秋庆祝活动锻炼他们的创意的机会。

共有34名儿童、5名照顾者和4名志愿者参与了在武吉加里尔Pavilion举行的活动。这是一个“面粉之夜”,孩子们戴着手套处理和塑造着五颜六色的面粉。

转眼之间,桌面上堆满了面团球,都准备好压制成我们都熟知和喜爱的月饼形状。

这些可爱而美味的艺术品随后被放入精致的红盒子中,成为他们可以带回家的纪念品。

然而,中秋节的庆祝不仅仅局限于月饼。因此,孩子们还尝试着制作传统的照亮满月夜晚的灯笼。

纸板被精心剪裁成框架,有些部分被折叠成立方体形状。然后,透明的黄色塑料被拉伸到这些剪影上,完成了灯笼。

当天他们不仅表达了创意,还参与了灯笼游行,走到一个舞台上,唱着关于月饼节的歌曲。

这无疑帮助提升了他们的信心,因为他们必须在一群欢呼的观众面前表演。如果有人留心仰望天空,他们会发现那天晚上月亮照得很明亮。但我们确信,他们的青春、激情和创意更为璀璨。

这充满乐趣的夜晚只是儿童每周参与的众多丰富活动之一。有关HiiChiiKok基金会的更多信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

Instilling Patriotism Into Our Leaders Of Tomorrow

Regardless of who we are, poor, rich, young, or old, there is no excuse not to love our country. But more than that, this noble expression is the lifeblood of every successful country. 

When people are able to collectively sacrifice, work and drive the country forward, everyone benefits in a holistic manner. With that in mind, the Hiichiikok Foundation is always searching for opportunities to plant the seeds of patriotism into the hearts of the children.

The 10th of Sept this year marked a wonderful chance, presented by the Bahai Merdeka Unity Devotional & Social Group Action. The gathering at the Bahai Center was organised to foster greater unity while spreading joy and patriotism in conjunction with Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day.

The event was attended by 27 people from the HiiChiiKok Foundation, which consisted of 23 children, 2 caretakers and 2 drivers. The children performed three songs that evening as requested by the organiser, among them being Tanggal 31 Ogos by Sudirman. It was a sea of red and white stripes with the children waving their flags in the air.

“The crowd enjoyed the performances so much that they requested an encore to one of the songs and our children even added another one of their favourite songs,” said Frieda Ngui, Guardian at the Hiichiikok Foundation.

One of the girls even stepped up to entertain the crowd with several Malay poems when the other children backed down. The performance may be over, but the spirit of nationalism lingered through the art canvas painting session.

Each child was handed a square of canvas with a semicircle drawn on it. They ran wild with their creativity, producing rainbows, homes with figures, or abstract art that speaks of their boundless imagination.

Smiles lit their small little faces. Cute hands were anointed with vibrant colours. Everyone had a wholesomely, good time. Undoubtedly, the children will carry the memory of their beloved country home through the songs and artwork. 

This fun-filled evening is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

Buying For A Good Cause

The campus of Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) was alive with the sound of music, laughter and merry making as visitors arrived I droves for the ‘Caring Hearts, Changing Lives’ event. A CSR event organised by HCK Capital Group (HCK) in aid of Yayasan Hiichiikok, the developer had pledged to match Ringgit for Ringgit sales made on the day with donations to the Home for underprivileged children.

The event featured musical performances by children from Yayasan Hiichiikok as well as numerous booths offering a variety of games to entertain the multitude of visitors. HCK staff were joined by those from partner financial institutions and real estate agencies, allowing staff of these stakeholders to network as well as exercise their corporate social responsibility initiatives.

A number of the visitors had come specifically to view the Harvard Suites on site while others were visitors to the CSR event who took the opportunity to check out the properties on offer.

“Weekends tend to attract more visitors who come to check out the Harvard Suites,” says Sean Ong, HCK Director for Business Relations Properties Division. “There is no reason why we can’t support a good cause through our sales and marketing channels.”

Ong also thanked students and parents from Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) and Peninsula Private School for taking an active part in the day’s events. They, too, set up stalls selling foodstuffs to raise funds and showcased their talents with a dance performance.

Given the success of the ‘Caring Hearts, Changing Lives’ event, Ong says there will be more CSR events in the future where greater awareness can be created by leveraging on Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) and Peninsula Private School as well as HCK’s property events.

Yayasan Hiichiikok is based in Taman Rainbow, Kuala Lumpur and aims to provide a safe and secure refuge for underprivileged children. It also aims to provide education opportunities for these children to escape their impoverished circumstances. For more information, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

购物,致力于善举

澳大利亚半岛国际学校(马来西亚分校)的校园充满了音乐、笑声和欢声笑语,随着参观者蜂拥而至参加“关怀之心,改变生命”活动。这是HCK Capital Group(HCK)为Hiichiikok基金会举办的一场企业社会责任(CSR)活动,开发商承诺将当天销售额逐一配对,并捐赠给贫困儿童之家。

活动中,Hiichiikok基金会的儿童进行了音乐表演,同时有许多摊位提供各种游戏以娱乐众多参观者。HCK员工与合作伙伴金融机构和房地产机构的员工一同参与,使这些利益相关者的员工有机会建立联系,同时履行其企业社会责任计划。

许多参观者特地前来参观现场的哈佛套房,而另一些是CSR活动的参观者,他们趁机查看提供的房产。

HCK房地产事业关系部总监Sean Ong表示:“周末通常吸引更多前来查看哈佛套房的游客。通过我们的销售和营销渠道支持善举毫无不可。”

Ong还感谢澳大利亚半岛国际学校(马来西亚分校)和半岛私立学校的学生和家长积极参与当天的活动。他们也设立了售卖食品筹款摊位,并通过舞蹈表演展示了他们的才艺。

鉴于“关怀之心,改变生命”活动的成功,Ong表示将来会有更多的CSR活动,通过澳大利亚半岛国际学校(马来西亚分校)和半岛私立学校以及HCK的房地产活动来创造更大的认知度。

Event For Hope

Yayasan Hiichiikok is a home for under-privileged children based in Taman Rainbow, Kuala Lumpur, offering safe refuge as well as an opportunity to escape impoverished circumstances through education. It was established to allow HCK Capital Group, its subsidiaries and associated stakeholders and partners to exercise its CSR initiatives, allowing for a meaningful exercise in giving back to society.

One such event – Caring Hearts, Changing Lives: A CSR Adventure – will be held at Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) on 24 June 2023, 10am-5pm. It is essentially a fundraiser involving staff of HCK Capital Group as well as those of invited stakeholders such as UOB Bank Berhad and real estate agencies, with members of the public encouraged to join in.

Participating staff will be setting up stalls selling food and other items alongside those by Yayasan Hiichiikok children with all proceeds going towards funding the Home as well as potential scholarships for deserving students.

Designed to create greater awareness of Yayasan Hiichiikok, the event will also provide a meaningful platform for staff of various participating organisations to know each other better. Aside from manning stalls, children from Yayasan Hiichiikok will also put on musical performances showcasing their talents.

“Yayasan Hiichiikok sincerely thanks everyone who put in their time and energy towards making this event a success. Apart from fund raising, it is a means to highlight to the children they are not forgotten and there are always people willing to give a lending hand to the needy,” says Frieda Ngui, Chief administrator at Yayasan Hiichiikok. “We invite everyone to join us on the day to spread some good will, cheer and positivity.”

Visitors to the event can also request for a tour of the venue’s school campus as well as visit the Harvard Suites, which are on site. For more enquiries, please call: 018-969 1964.

Yayasan Hiichiikok offers scholarships to deserving students

Yayasan Hiichiikok provides much needed food and shelter to over 30 under privileged children at its home in Taman Rainbow in Kuala Lumpur. But more than that, it also provides the means and opportunity for these children to escape the cycle of poverty through education.

Yayasan Hiichiikok was set up as a means for HCK Capital Group and its subsidiaries to carry out is corporate social responsibility initiatives. Yayasan Hiichiikok is able to provide scholarships to deserving children under its care via its links to SEG International Berhad (SEGi) which operates a number of private tertiary education institutions as well as international schools throughout the country.

It is through this connection with SEGi that Yayasan Hiichiikok is able to provide avenues for deserving students under its care to fulfill their potential through higher education. Two such students from Yayasan Hiichiikok has certainly seized the opportunity after both were offered scholarships, inclusive of boarding, following exemplary SPM results.

Fong Boon Siew and Shanya Savantharaja Naidu, both aged 19, are currently pursuing Foundation in Arts programme at SEGi University, Kota Damansara. Fong’s ambitions is to become a cybersecurity expert after becoming interested in the subject during lockdown. Hours of delving on the subject convinced her that this was, indeed, her calling and she still cannot quite believe that she is able to pursue a Degree in Cybersecurity on a scholarship.

Shanya, meanwhile, has hopes of obtaining a Degree in Psychology after completing the Foundation programme. She, too, is ecstatic at the opportunity provided through Yayasan Hiichiikok firmly believing it to be a pathway to escape difficult circumstances. She is keen to point out that Yayasan Hiichiikok encourages all children under its care to strive for better academic results, with opportunities at both tertiary and vocational institutions available to deserving students.

“If not for the scholarship, I would not have been able to afford the degree programme at SEGi University,” says Shanya. “Higher education is a means for me to improve myself and I hope to be a role model to my siblings.”

Echoing those sentiments, Fong is eternally grateful to Yayasan Hiichiikok for providing her with the opportunity to study not just in a premium private tertiary institution but also in a multi-cultural environment. Noting interactions with international students as one of her favourite aspects of studying at SEGi, she urges all her peers at Yayasan Hiichiikok to seize the opportunity by concentrating all their efforts in their SPM examinations. Both scholars are also doing their part paying-it-forward by tutoring younger children at Yayasan Hiichiikok during weekends in the hope that others can emulate their achievements.

“Nothing is impossible. With a stable and secure environment coupled with the guidance of Yayasan Hiichiikok counsellors, students can concentrate their efforts in turning their lives into something positive through higher education,” counsels Fong. “Shanya and I are proof of that.”
