F&N Dairies Sdn Bhd launched its own F&N E.L.I.T.E. (Empowering Lives Through Education) programme which aims to give underprivileged children a chance at a better life through education support programmes.

 

And the first beneficiaries of the initiative are none other than the kids who attend the education centre set up by the Kassim Chin Humanity Foundation.

 

The centre, which boasts an estimated 120 students, requires an estimated RM8,000 each month to stay afloat. The programme runs on public contributions and this is where the F&N E.L.I.T.E. programme can play a role.

 

The F&N Dairies E.L.I.T.E. programme takes learning to the next level by empowering students and their families to rise above their conditions and strive for a better future; the programme is effectively shaping the children into future agents of transformation for their families.

 

Through the E.L.I.T.E. programme, F&N Dairies will continue to support the centre by means of financial aid as well as products.
