LBKM appeals to your kindness to Top Up a child's ezlink card by sponsoring the cost of a concession pass for one school year. Through our network of bursary recipients, LBKM aims to ensure that students in need also have the means to go to school. By doing so, students will be able to use their meal vouchers for food, and also prevents absenteeism.
To give you an example, each student under the Financial Assistance Scheme receives $10 for transport every month, which is insufficient as $10 often depletes quickly. By purchasing a concession pass, this will ensure that funds are solely being used for transport and also gives them them security that even in tough times, they will be able to get to school which is often a safe haven.
A concession pass for secondary school students per month costs $25 for MRT, and $27.50 for bus. We are seeking donations of $210 and above (which will top up the existing FA transport subsidy and support 1 student through the year), and will allocate the relevant amount according to transport needs.
Any balance (for example, if a student only requires MRT assistance) will remain in the fund for other ancillary Top Up purposes, such as urgent requests for adhoc help with school related enrichment activities.
Our goal is to support 50 students in 2019.
