INCEIF donates PCs to 2 schools

Melaka – INCEIF today donated 5 laptops and 5 desktops each to two schools which were in serious need of personal computers. Schoolchildren at both schools in Melaka use computers regularly for their daily school work as well as to prepare for major examinations.

At the first school, Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Beringin in Masjid Tanah, INCEIF Chief Operations Officer Mr Dzalin Ayub had the opportunity to explain the basics of Islamic finance to about 150 students from Standard 3 to 6 and a number of teachers.

“For some of them, it was the first time that they are hearing about Islamic finance. Even though INCEIF is a university that offers postgraduate studies, we have always believe that knowledge and awareness on Islamic finance should start from at an early age. After all, these children could potentially be the next generation of users of Islamic finance products and services.

“As  for the PCs, INCEIF is more than happy to contribute in our own small way to ease the schools’ constraint in terms of the facilities they could provide to their students. In this day and age, where ICT is almost a necessity in our daily conduct, the teachers and school children should not be deprived of the benefits that come with having good access to PCs. As an organisation, it is our social responsibility to help out where we can,” Mr Dzalin said.

Mr Dzalin, who was accompanied on the trip by INCEIF’s ICT team, was touched when the schoolchildren offered a prayer at the end of the visit. Among others, the children prayed that INCEIF would continue to be successful in its operations and its role in promoting Islamic finance.

The second school to receive the PCs is Sekolah Menengah Agama (JAIM) Al-Ehya El-Karim which is also located in Masjid Tanah. The school has consistently been among the top 5 in the state for having the best SPM results. A good number of its school leavers have been accepted to study at top universities including Al-Azhar in Eygpt.
