KAJANG, 4TH JUNE 2018 – On May 28, 2018, KitaTerangi was held in the UNITEN’s students’ lounge at the UNITEN Student Centre (USC). KitaTerangi is an initiative by #KITAUNITEN to engage with the most vulnerable community in our society, refugees. UNITEN reached out to students from IDEAS Academy to help provide a holistic education. IDEAS Academy is a secondary learning center for underprivileged children, including those who are refugees, stateless and undocumented. It is located in Kuala Lumpur.
Preparations for KitaTerangi were ongoing ever since UNITEN’s recent semester break (May) and took place on May 28. 50 students from the academy attended the event. There was street sketching activity for the students, conducted by a freelance artist, Mr. Aliff Danial. The session started at 3 p.m. and lasted for two hours. They were taught about shades and even sketched the faces of their friends.
