Project Summary

What inspired us?

Education is the key to a secure and sustainable future, and proper nutrition and physical activity are necessary to optimize a student's learning capability.

"Kyan-Mar-Yeh" means "Health" in Burmese and we believe that health is essential to one's learning optimization and quality of life.

However, to the underserved communities, health may become a challenging issue and barrier from them to receive the education they need - these barriers include environmental factors, lack of knowledge and awareness, financial instability, as well as lack of access to healthcare had increased their susceptibility towards Non-Communicable diseases.

The fact that all of these are preventable, cause us to take action towards these factors.

What does #KMYProject do?
Our volunteers, consisting of Nutrition university students will go and educate the Myanmmar refugee students at a Refugee School in Kuala Lumpur area, as well as conducting Nutritional Assessment to assess their nutritional status - all to be done over the course of 15 weeks.

Our teaching will cover:
- Personal Hygiene
- Food Safety and Hygiene
- Healthy vs. unhealthy foods
- Healthy weight status

In order to make this happen, we will need your help.
For every RM 10 donated, you are helping a Myanmar student to receive and apply the knowledge and the health assessment.
