Sabri and Norwati have undertaken a mission to groom these young multi-racial
Malaysians to become well-rounded world-class future leaders. Since its
formation, the founders of this club have put in their personal touch to this
programme. Their contribution is not limited to funding the numerous activities
but also to closely monitor the progress of each individual child in the group.
They believe that Malaysian children need to be exposed to a lot more issues and values to mould them into becoming meaningful citizens of the world. To them, age is not a barrier; given the opportunities, children can mature much faster and can understand issues and happenings around the world today with ease. “They are not the source of the problem; they are the resources that are needed to solve them. They are not expenses, they are investments. We call them the future but they are also the present”.
