The Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Institute of Health Sciences (PAPRSB IHS) of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) is working hand-in-hand with the Society for the Management of Autism-Related Issues in Training, Education and Resources (SMARTER) to organise a charity musical performance on September 22nd and 23rd.

The show, entitled “Looking Through the Autism Wonderland”, is the 5th concert produced by SMARTER and is set to be held at the International Convention Centre, Berakas. The main cast comprises SMARTER children and youths with autism in an exciting adaptation of the classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The collaboration between IHS and SMARTER is the first of its kind and is a project conceived by Team ALICE (Appreciating the Lives of Individuals With Autism and Celebrating their Excellence), a group of 3rd year medical students, as part of a community outreach Special Study Module. It aims to enhance autism awareness in the Sultanate as well as to generate funds of up to $100,000 for the continuity of SMARTER.

The same group of students has so far succeeded in raising nearly $1,700 from donations and garage sales in a bid to fund the upcoming theatre event.

“We are confident that the SMARTER children will deliver a tour de force that will move the people in the audience. They have been working hard and are excited to give their best performance, so we encourage everyone to attend the event.” – Wardatul Ramzuna, one of the students behind Team ALICE.

“Members of the public are invited to see the feature show on Saturday, 22nd September at 7PM. For this event, we made the initiative to go paperless ticket by implementing e-ticketing system, sold at: $35, $45, $65, and $80. Please visit the website or simply contact +673 7141411 or visit our official Instagram page @autismwonderland for further information and update.” – Khairuddin Khalid, another member of Team ALICE.

The Sunday, 23rd September matinee at 2PM is exclusively for Year 10 and Lower Sixth Form students from selected schools.

The project is supported by numerous local companies such as Standard Chartered, BIBD, Mashhor Group of Companies, Progresif Cellular Sdn Bhd, Dotroot Technologies, Othman and Associates Consulting Engineers, Thomson Furniture, Printmartz Advertising.

BIBD yesterday strengthened its collaboration with key government ministries in efforts to support Brunei Darussalam’s Wawasan 2035 to develop well- educated and highly-skilled individuals with a Temburong educational trip to schools in Sekolah Rendah Selapon, Sekolah Rendah Selangan and Sekolah Arab Temburong.

The existing collaborations are focused to accomplish the national strategy to prepare Brunei’s youth for an increasingly competitive and knowledge-based future. BIBD also took the opportunity to present educational materials to all three schools to supplement the development of their education.

The BIBD travelling party, which included senior management personnel, members of its Corporate Social Responsibility team along with BIBD ALAF volunteers, also extended their visit by engaging the local community to identify other opportunities for improvement to support the development and educational needs of its community.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme, another key collaboration with the Bruneian government, specifically the education arms of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA). Concurrently, the BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students, their families at their homes along with engagements with ALAF teachers from MoE and MoRa. This holistic approach allows BIBD to ensure the educational progress of ALAF students.

Hj Mohammad Yusri bin Hj Wahsalfelah, BIBD Head of Government Relations and Special Projects, commented, “It is essential that we support the development of education for our youth as future leaders to create a robust economy towards a sustainable society. This direct engagement approach allows us to better understand their living conditions and extend the right support. “On behalf of BIBD, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from the public and private sector on our continued collaborations to further fortify the future of Brunei Darussalam”.

About The ALAF Programme

The BIBD ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future) programme currently supports the development of more than one hundred and seventy students. The programme is kept sustainable by collaborated efforts from both public and private efforts which include BIBD’s own charity expeditions for ALAF, generous contributions from corporate agencies as well as members of the general public.

How can the public support the ALAF Programme

Members of the public wishing to contribute into the BIBD ALAF Programme fund may do so with a minimum donation of B$1.01 into the BIBD ALAF account at 1018181811 via BIBD channels such as the BIBD Online website, BIBD Mobile app, BIBD ATM and CDMs, and BIBD branch counters. The public can also set up a BIBD Standing Instruction to ensure a monthly donation into the ALAF fund. As an added option, BIBD account holders can also use their accumulated BIBD Hadiah Points for cash conversion into contributions into the ALAF fund account.
