Project Adopt was founded initially founded by the 2011 International Baccalaureate
students of Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas
. The objectives is to instill hope and inspiration to the children at Sinthamani Ashram Orphanage Home. The students design their own plan for the tutoring sessions every Saturday according to the Home's academic needs. However, Project Adopt does not only act as a platform to bring the kids of the Sinthamani Ashram Orphanage Home to a higher level of education. Another main focus of this club is to allow the pre-university students of Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas the opportunity to be connected with a community is neglected in the pursuit of higher academic achievement.
As current leader Kashwini Krishnan
notes “Through Project Adopt, want to generate a genuine love for learning in the children and raise awareness on the importance of knowledge for their future. Though they may not be as academically prepared as the children brought up in proper families, we see the hope within them. With patience and love, we consistently push them forward, with the emphasis being placed on Mathematics, English and Science."
The ultimate aim of Project Adopt is to teach to the children specific skillsets that will help them be successful on their own in the real world. Project Adopt aims to enhance their skillsets and unlock previously hidden potential that can change their lives for the better. As Kirtana Jayagandan
states “The hope and wishes of these children will only become real when our unwavering commitment plays a role”.
They now plan to collaborate with the LEO club of TCSH in the month of April and help the kids at the Agathians orphanage
in Petaling Jaya. This is to keep Project Adopt a continuously changing experience and to bring up new plans for the year 2014. As Long Chee Yun
states “The teaching and learning style that we have been practicing is going to face some changes to make our teaching style more effective and to be able to adapt to this completely new scenario. We hope we will gain good support from the new January intake students and of course the seniors who have been a great help to Project Adopt.”
