The Goals for Education donation drive is a collaboration between Dynamik Technologies and Progresif which was officially launched last year after schools were affected by the closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The campaign is part of the companies’ whole of nation approach which aims to support online learning initiatives and students in need of ICT devices nationwide.
The campaign first kicked off with the 555 and 1Co Challenges, both of which were social media challenges which encouraged members of the public and companies, respectively, to record themselves scoring 5 goals, tagging 5 peers, and donating via BIBD Online or Progresif Pay in order to raise awareness and funds for the campaign.
In the welcoming remarks by Haslina Taib, Chief Executive Officer of Dynamik Technologies, she stated, At Dynamik Technologies, we believe in empowering our youth through technology as they are the nation’s future. We hope all of us as a community can continue to support creating equal access to digital tools and help those who are facing challenges in online learning. Even once we have moved past the COVID-19 pandemic, these students will have continued access to the world, digitally.”
“Following the resurgence of active COVID-19 cases in Brunei, we must now work together to support this initiative. No matter how big or little the contribution is, it will go a long way to ensure the nation’s youth are able to broaden their education.” said Hajah Nurul Haniah, CEO of Progresif Goals for Education will continue to actively raise funds for more ICT devices. With the second wave of COVID-19 in Brunei Darussalam, there are still more students in need who require access to ICT devices to carry out online learning.
Dynamik and Progresif encourage everyone to support ‘Goals For Education’ to enable the outreach of education for our students nationwide. More information can be found on their designated Instagram account @goalsforeducationbn where the latest progress and amount of donation raised will be shared.
