BIBD today strengthened its efforts to support the development and educational needs of its community with contributions to the Orang Kaya Pemancha Berandai Primary School in Mukim Labi.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme as well as the teachers who continuously support their education.

BIBD took the opportunity to also hand over books to add to the school library, an air conditioning unit to provide comfort to the students, and prizes to fifteen students who excelled in their education. The BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students in Labi.

Hj Mohammad Yusri bin Hj Wahsalfelah, BIBD Head of Government Relations and Special Projects, commented, “Education is an essential part of the development of a robust economy towards a sustainable society. Therefore, we cannot underestimate the impact it can bring, but equally important is the environment in which our future leaders are brought up in.

“Alhamdulillah, we are able to contribute towards this cause with reaching out to the students of Labi, and also our own ALAF programme students to improve their learning conditions, while also taking the opportunity to thank the schools and teachers who continue to ensure the students’ future success.”

Also present as part of the visiting group members of the BIBD Shariah Advisory Body, BIBD senior management and officials.
