About The BIG GIVE 2020
Due to the global pandemic COVID-19, all schools in Malaysia were abruptly closed and students have been made to learn from home since Malaysia imposed the MCO on 18 March 2020.
Months have passed and students and teachers have been struggling with effectively learning from home. Therefore, the Ministry of Education began allowing students and school staff to return to school in June. However, our battle against COVID-19 is not yet over until we find a vaccine.
As cases are on the rise again, face masks have been made compulsory effective 1st August and we want to ensure that our nation’s children are protected. 100% Project has launched a Nationwide fundraising campaign called The Big Give and we are partnering with Mangosteen to provide our students, teachers and school administrators with FREE reusable cloth face masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
Mangosteen is a social enterprise that is working with a community of mothers from vulnerable communities (B40, Orang Asli, etc) to make reusable cloth face masks.
Overall, there are nearly 5 million students enrolled in MOE primary and secondary schools in Malaysia- click on this link to view stats - Quick facts 2019_Malaysia Educational Statistics
The Big Give’s ambitious goal is to raise funds to provide at least 1 million reusable face masks to schools across Malaysia, protecting all our students and school staff.
With only RM10, you will be sponsoring a reusable face mask to a school AND providing a mother with the means to support her family.
