An Investment for a Better Future
Starting last month, BostonMS launched a new project to sponsor a student or a teacher in Malaysia. Our primary goal was to let the students focus on their study and allow them to study in a better learning environment. While I was working with the team to make this project possible, I saw the hardships these students were facing and decided to become a donor myself. It was my mother’s idea to become a donor for one of the teachers. She suggested that we could donate as the ‘Kim family’ and each chip in. That is how my family became donors to Mrs. Tambunan, the nurse in Victory School.
Just a few days ago we sent our second check to Mrs. Tambunan. I've asked a few of my family members what they thought of helping a teacher as a family. My brother, Jaehong, mentioned that we were fortunate to get a good education. He said, "I hope students get better education and brighten their future through our help to their teacher." When I asked my mom why she wanted to help the teacher more than the student, she told me that in a harsh environment like Malaysia, education is essential for students to be able to lead a better life. Education should be the background for their success and so, the people who are at the forefront of their future are the teachers. She believed that helping the teachers ultimately lead to helping the students. As one of the people who organized this project, I noticed the sacrifices the teachers were making for their students. For example, Mrs. Tambunan not only teaches her class the whole day, but also works as a nurse in the school due to the low budget in school.
Without education, there is no future. And here, we have the opportunity to cultivate our future, their future. An opportunity to reach out and help students bloom to their full potential. An opportunity to open up new possibilities. And, on behalf of the beneficiaries, BostonMS thanks all of you, who agree with our mission and strive for a brighter world. Your sacrifices truly make a difference.
