"In light of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, I am still glad to be able to contribute in some form towards the kids in Sabah via Digital Anak Malaysia! Throughout the educational video project, we hustled towards a common goal of motivating the kids to complete their studies up to tertiary education. Thank you, Charisma Movement for the experience to give a positive impact to the kids through this meaningful project!"

"I would trade anything to go back to Sabah, that’s for sure. I had so much fun being there but most important here is to reflect and take a look around the community and see what we can contribute in order to make the lives of the rural people better. I would share my experience in Sabah with as many people as possible so we can finally achieve our goal of eradicating education inequality that is quite critical here in Malaysia."
"Undeniably, coming here has deepen my understanding into the rural-urban divide; but realising that the small actions we took could have made an impact – no matter how big or small – on the kids here has made me more eager than before to want to do more for my society."
