Kuala Lumpur, 15 July ‘21- Largest nationwide ‘Free’ Online Tuition Programme was launched yesterday by Dato Sivakumar Nadraja, fondly known as DSK, a businessman, Trustee of Sri Maha Mariamman Temple Devasthanam Kuala Lumpur and well known philanthropist.
This free online tuition programme has been organised to provide learning assistance for primary, PT 3 and SPM students.
This programme was launched officially by Dato N. Sivakumar and moderated by En. Arif Zahran, Youth leader, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Communication and Social Media Expert, Mr. Kavi Maaran, Raaga RJ, Mr. Veejay, educationist and master trainer and Mr. Nixon Teng, education consultant and alumni of AIMST University.
“As for phase 1 of this programme we have received almost 1030 registration from students all over the country, except Perlis and Sabah. We had one student registered from Miri, Sarawak,” said Dato Siva.
“I am saddened to see students are unable to get proper learning guidance during this pandemic and lockdown. Furthermore, parents have financial difficulties to fork out extra money for tuition fees. Thus, I decided to organise this free online tutorial session for the benefit of all Malaysian students,” he added.
“I take this opportunity to thank Sri Maha Mariamman Temple Devasthanam Temple Chairman, Tan Sri Datuk Nadaraja, Malaysian Indian Congress President, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri SA. Vigneswaran and Deputy MIC President and Minister of Human Resources, Datuk Seri M. Saravanan for their blessings and encouragement to make this programme a success.”
“I’m also indebted to almost 30 teachers and team DSK members who volunteered to be part of this programme. This team is so dedicated and they’re the main catalyst to make this free online tuition programme a great success,” said Dato Siva.
DSK also said that Phase 2 of this free online tuition programme will be announced soon as there is great demand for it from students throughout the nation.
“My sincere hope is that this programme will benefit all students during this challenging times and ease parent’s burden,” he added.
