About SMK Bugaya
Today SMK Bugaya has over 1600 students. Majority of the studentsare staying inthe city and the archipelago of Semporna. Most of the students are from low-income families with joint parental income below RM3,000. You can see that students come to school mostly by walking or staying at the school hostel. However there are some students who come to school with chartered bus and car.
The students’ socio-economic background do play a huge role in their education as some parents may find it hard to provide enough necessities for their children. Most cases that occur in our school is that students have to drop out because they wanted to help their parents with providing enough basic needs in their own house. Hence, it will be such a huge help if we were able to get all the mask required for our school.
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.
