Project Name : Daily Breakfast for Needy Children in Primary Schools
Project Description :
The Project was initiated by Ln Ng Tuck Heng when the Club was chartered.
It is to provide Daily breakfast to needy children whose families cannot afford to provide due to
financial constraints in the families.
In addition, the Club provides fresh fruits such as apples and pears and also biscuits to go with the food supplied by the canteen operators.
3 Primary Schools were selected since 2011:
(1) SJKC Chung Hwa Damansara, Section 17, Petaling Jaya
(2) SJKC Cheng Moh, P Jaya Old Town
(3) SJKC Puay Chai 2, Bandar Utama, P Jaya

1. Objective of the Signature Project
It is to provide a Daily basic simple meal to alleviate Hunger among needy Primary schools children.
From our study and survey, we found the following among poor children:
(1) No breakfast at home before going to school
(2) No pocket money to buy breakfast in school
(3) Borrowing money from classmates to buy food
(4) Sharing their classmates’ food
(5) Looking at their classmates eating
(6) Look lethargic and ired due to hungry stomachs
These move us to provide the basic food for these needy children
