  • The Kampung Chuweh Project
    Kampung Chuweh is a remote village with about 90 inhabitants; almost a half of whom are children. Like children everywhere, these kids are full of life and potential: they like to laugh, play, run and sing. They are clever and love to learn. However, they do not go to school. This is because the village sits in the Banding Lake in the North of Malaysia. The nearest schools – Sekolah Kheman and Sekolah Banun – are about 25km away and they would need a boat to get there.

    The kids want to go to school and have dreams of becoming doctors and teachers. Their parents and community leaders are also very keen that through schooling these kids get a chance to achieve their full potential. However, the journey to education is challenging due to the distance and lack of sustainable and safe transportation.

    Learn how the Horlicks School Journey Initiative aims to give them access to education.

    The Horlicks School Journey Initiative aims to bridge the gap between the children and education. It plans to do so by working with the community and a trusted partner, the Malaysian Association of Social Workers (MASW).
