During my birthday 10 years ago. I wanted to persue my studies in Information Technology.
My family could not afford to kick start the fee nor the daily expenditure .
Yaysan Mendaki provided the schools fees ( 2800dlr ) for the 1st installment ..
I worked part-time earning 800dlr a month while attending night class @ MDIS
I completed my Diploma with flying colours.
My birthday this year is to give back to society. For the current and future who needs the same I did.
Yayasan MENDAKI (Council for the Development of Singapore Malay/Muslim Community) is a pioneer Self-Help Group formed in 1982 dedicated to empower the community through excellence in education, in the context of a multi-racial and multi-religious Singapore. In 2002, MENDAKI streamlined its focus along four key areas of Education, Youth, Family and Employability.
MENDAKI's programmes largely target the bottom 30% of the Malay/Muslim population and are therefore highly subsidized. They are mostly preventive and developmental programmes to provide early assistance to the beneficiaries. The programmes are designed to supplement or complement national initiatives.
MENDAKI works extensively with partners that share and support its vision and mission. They consist of government agencies, schools, mosques, Malay/Muslim organisations, employers, community centres and MAECs, family & student service centres and many more.
