How can NGOs help enhance education in Malaysia?

KUALA LUMPUR, May 29: As Plato once said that “Education is teaching our children to desire the right things”, a lot of non-governmental organisations are stepping into the fore to ensure that quality education can flourish in Malaysia.

On Friday May 31, a forum on “Empowering minds:NGOs enhancing educational access beyond the classroom” will be held at the World Trade Centre here at 11am.

The forum is part of The One Talk series focusing on current practices along with useful tips from leaders and experts from the publishing and bookselling world. It is being run in conjunction with the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair, an event being held at the World Trade Centre here until June 2.

The book fair is organised by the Malaysian National Book Council (MBKM) with the cooperation of the Ministry of Education and Malaysian Book Industry Chamber (MBIC).
