We are students of SK Raja Bahar, Kelantan.
This year, we led a social impact project in our school, “Save the Earth”, as part of the I CAN SCHOOL CHALLENGE 2019.
The purpose of the challenge was to build a financially sustainable and scalable business model covering one of the 12 different Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For our project, we chose to tackle the problem of global warming. We should protect Mother Earth so that our future generations can live in a safe environment.
We addressed this problem by devising several activities to raise awareness and save the earth. Among the activities we have been doing is planting trees with preschoolers and year 1 pupils, reviving the School Herbs Garden by planting herbal plants and making a schedule for watering and treating these herbal plants. We have also disseminated the importance of plants to all schoolchildren during school gatherings.
Out of 86 participating teams in the I CAN Challenge, we placed in the TOP 10 and were selected to represent Malaysia in the I CAN Children’s Global Summit 2019 in Rome, Italy.
Now, we need your help! We are fundraising for 5 members of our team and 1 chaperone teacher to travel to Rome. The summit will take place on the 26th-30th November 2019.
I CAN is a 4-day international gathering of more than 2,000 students from 60+ countries empowered with the I CAN mindset. It serves as a global platform to showcase their stories of change and the ways they have positively impacted their communities across the world.
The celebration is also packed with talks, workshops and exhibitions especially designed to further instill in children the belief and courage that they have the ability to take action and make the world a better place.
With your help, we will get the opportunity to present our project on a global stage!
We are looking forward to engage in 4 days of CommUNITY, Collaboration, Creative Solutions, Inspiration, and Impact!
