2 months ago, we had a little chit-chat session in a casual setting with 4 male students from the IDRAC International School of Management, situated in Lyon, France. However, this time around, 3 girls from KDU University College will be heading to IDRAC instead, on 1st February 2012.

Dato' Lee Chong Wei, surrounded by avid fans and supporters
There were more than hundred applications from students who applied for the Dato' Lee Chong Wei KDU Education Group Scholarship 2012. Some were merely a fan of his, some were sports enthusiasts, some were enthusiastic about their dreams and making it real, some were wanting to show their inspirational side of story, and some, were students who dare to dream.
However, only ten selected ones received the scholarship.
The scholarship presentation ceremony took place at KDU University College, Damansara Jaya campus on 18th January 2012.
Dato' Lee Chong Wei, the KDU Education Group brand ambassador, has been an inspirational icon to many, despite the age of different generations. He has a huge following of fans and followers. He has been through thick and thin, faced many challenges and obstacles, but his strong spirit and will made him one of many that stood out. Today, he is the World's number 1 Badminton Player.
The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26 makes clear that education should be free at the “elementary and fundamental stages,” and that “elementary education shall be compulsory,” with “technical and professional education....and higher education...equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.” The premise is sound, and is further supported by the European Convention of Human Rights, Protocol 1; Article 2, which “provides for the right not to be denied an education.”
A number of years ago, three unique individuals founded a charitable organization: The ECM Libra Foundation. The organization has only one objective; providing “financial assistance for educational purposes for the poor Malaysian, irrespective of race, religion or creed.”
The ECM Libra Foundation believes firmly that education is an inalienable right, one that sparks hope in hearts and minds, but also gives births to dreams of a brighter future, thus making education the ultimate weapon in the fight against the cycle of poverty.

We, KDU University College, have always been supportive towards sports, co-curricular activities and such. This time around, we supported the "Official MSSD Petaling Utama Basketball Tournament" with an amount of RM 12,945.

They need a balance amount of sports, studies and fun at the same time.
