In this new normal, the freedom to go on with our usual daily routines has been a privilege that many Malaysians no longer have.
HP Malaysia collaborate with Teach For Malaysia to bring Malaysians together to support learning from home with its #iMovewithHP campaign – designed to inspire Malaysians to stay positive and create meaningful connections during these unprecedented times.
The collaboration between HP Malaysia and TFM was born from the combined drive to ensure vulnerable communities are able to adapt to the changing education landscape.
The #iMovewithHP campaign seeks to bring Malaysians together to give back to the community and help students who are unable to continue learning from home.
“As one nation, we can support the future of Malaysia together,” Fayza Mohamed Amin, Malaysia Managing Director, HP Inc. said in a statement.
#iMovewithHP was brought to life to support communities who lack access to the technology that is vital in continuing their education and work.
As an independent, non-profit organisation, Teach For Malaysia (TFM) is on a mission to give all Malaysian children the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
TFM will identify schools in the Klang Valley that have a high population of underprivileged students and work with the school management to nominate families to receive the HP 14 laptops.
“As we see extended school closures due to the movement control order, TFM’s goal is to ensure that all children in Malaysia will be able to continue learning, no matter their background,” Chan Soon Seng, Chief Executive Officer of TFM said.
According to Education Minister Radzi Jidin, a recent survey of students from 670,000 households found that only 6 percent have access to a personal computer, and as many as 40 percent of students don’t own a device for e-learning.
“As such, TFM will ramp up our work to ensure that students with the least resources are not left behind,” Chan added.
The #iMovewithHP campaign will see each content creator launch their own social media challenges in line with their passions. These challenges will encourage their followers to learn a skill set and to share their newly acquired skill on social media tagging #iMovewithHP.
This combined community effort will go on to help the less fortunate, with HP Malaysia donating one extra HP laptop to TFM for every 50 submissions received. The HP laptops will then be distributed to underprivileged students in the B40 community.
