Many Hands Make Work Light
The commitment of five MBA students of Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB) to help an unfortunate family was demonstrated through a corporate social responsibility (CSR) at Nyior Chabang village in Langkawi recently.
The students assisted the villagers to improve the basic amenities of the affected family by putting up new walls and roofs and painting. The students even paid the paints themselves.
The activity was coordinated by Dr Gunalan Nadarajah, a senior lecturer of OYAGSB who teaches OMMU 6013 Business Ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Sustainability. The activity was a platform for the students to develop the spirit of teamwork and giving back to the community.
The Community Service Programme, the Poor Family House Construction Programme organised by the Ayer Hangat State Assemblyman's Office, and the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) were also involved in the activity.
‘I am very proud of the efforts of these students who are willing to cross the ocean to help this family. This effort will not cease here and will continue in the future,’ added Dr Gunalan Nadarajah.
