I have always been a dreamer since young, fantasizing various things that I can do in life. Most of the visions have been realised. For this, I have to thank my parents who created a business out of nothing but pure hardwork and humble attitudes towards life in order to provide for all the children in the family. Hence, I have developed empathy towards the less fortunate with my down-to-earth and humble background. At the same time, I have been exposed to various cultures when I did volunteer jobs at hospitals, schools and summer camps in Singapore, U.K. and the U.S.A. respectively.
After founding this Clover school, my principle is to provide something for the children to give back to the society. Yes, I want to provide the best education that I think for preschoolers and kindergarteners, and at the same time giving something back without monetary return. This is why our "ABC Music & Me" program for the 2 to 4-year-olds comes F.O.C. for parents.
However, this is definitely not enough to reach out to those less fortunate students who cannot afford good education. I have time and energy constraint. I hope one day I can do like what the Bali Green School is doing - giving out bursaries to the needies. This needs a good team of people to work together, I still need to find the ropes to do that.
In Bali Green School, the curriculum works towards the cambridge examinations. This does not hinder any of the curriculum which includes learning about the nature, hands-on with everything and anything, including eating plants and fruits everyday that the children are taught to plant and harvest. This is a dream school that I yearn to work in. I don't mind working for others again because I can do my part to help in contributing to the world.
Many parents told me I have done a lot for their child(ren), they are lucky to have found this little Clover land. However, I know it is still a long way to go to reach out to more, especially those who are less fortunate. Researching on Bali Green School will definitely give a light to my vision for Clover. My next step is to visit them, the people who make this "miracle" happen, to help me help those in need.
