A new corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative is in the pipeline with IPEC Bureau and ASTRO. The programme is designed to help the poor in the Tuaran area in Sabah. Both parties discussed this initiative – which is part of ASTRO’s e-kasih programme – with Tuaran MP and Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau, who leads this initiative.
e-kasih is an ASTRO effort to provide FREE NJOI services to the poor under the Implementation & Coordination Unit (ICU) of the Prime Minister’s Office. IPEC and ASTRO visited Tuaran to feasibility studies and also visited the Kiulu’s Sekolah Kebangsaan Lokub Tuaran. IPEC and ASTRO will join forces to provide essential educational content to uplift the community and improve their prospects for the future.
