‘Caltex Fuel Your School’ Creates Impact for Students in Malacca
Chevron Malaysia Limited, which carries the retail brand Caltex®, successfully completed its annual community campaign, Caltex Fuel Your School in partnership with MyKasih Foundation. In its fourth consecutive year, the Campaign had once again further raised the awareness in driving change and providing equal self-development with proper classroom facilities for students of high need schools in Malacca and Negeri Sembilan by enhancing a better environment and further promoting the learning of Science, Technology, English and Mathematics.
This year, out of 25 classroom projects funded for Malacca, Sekolah Kebangsaan Air Molek struck the most wins and was awarded with learning materials worth RM30,000 in total. The submissions contributed to a 60 percent increase in project submissions compared to the overall campaign last year.
The learning materials awarded to all winning projects of participating schools in both Malacca and Negeri Sembilan created an impact reaching a total of 1,241 students. In Malacca itself, the Campaign had reached out to more than 800 students with the support of Caltex® users who purchased petrol using the Caltex® JOURNEY Card from 15 October to 14 November with RM2 pledged to the classroom projects. Funds generated were channeled towards purchasing materials such as computer notebooks, projectors, interactive white boards, electronic dictionaries and laboratory equipment, to name a few.
