We've reached that time of the year when it's all about families and loved ones. A time to stand still and take stock of all the wonderful things that have happened in the last year.
A time to be grateful that we've made it (intact!) through the past year. I'm sure we've all had our ups and downs, but now is the time to wipe the slate clean, forge new friendships, make new memories and look forward to what the New Year has to bring.
From everyone here at GRADUAN, Have A Happy New Year!!

Nada Marie and Zuleana Abdul Razak from GRADUAN had the pleasure of visiting the Kem Skorlah! session at SMK Bandar Baru Batang Kali for a fun filled day of teaching.
A non-profit organization, Teach for Malaysia is a partner organization of Teach For All, an international body which enlists outstanding graduates and young professionals to teach in high-poverty areas in its mission to eradicate education inequity.
FUN FACT: Malaysia is the first country in South-East Asia and the third in Asia to introduce this programme!:)
GRADUAN’S day at Kem Skorlah was an inspiring experience. Watching the kids learn through various means is truly amazing! We take out hats off to the TFM Fellows!!
