Kyan-Mar-Yeh Project

A Community Initiative by Hands of Hope Malaysia to advocate health education to the Refugee School ...


What inspired us?

Education is the key to a secure and sustainable future, and proper nutrition and physical activity are necessary to optimize a student's learning capability.

"Kyan-Mar-Yeh" means "Health" in Burmese and we believe that health is essential to one's learning optimization and quality of life.

However, to the underserved communities, health may become a challenging issue and barrier from them to receive the education they need - these barriers include environmental factors, lack of knowledge and awareness, financial instability, as well as lack of access to healthcare had increased their susceptibility towards Non-Communicable diseases.

The fact that all of these are preventable, cause us to take action towards these factors.

What does #KMYProject do?
Our volunteers, consisting of Nutrition university students will go and educate the Myanmmar refugee students at a Refugee School in Kuala Lumpur area, as well as conducting Nutritional Assessment to assess their nutritional status - all to be done over the course of 15 weeks.

Our teaching will cover:
- Personal Hygiene
- Food Safety and Hygiene
- Healthy vs. unhealthy foods
- Healthy weight status

In order to make this happen, we will need your help.
For every RM 10 donated, you are helping a Myanmar student to receive and apply the knowledge and the health assessment.

A pitcher/pledger does not necessarily need a PayPal account to pitch or pledge. What he/she needs is a credit card (Mastercard/Visa) or a debit card.

However, if you are not comfortable doing an online pitch/pledge - you can transfer the money directly to the pitchIN account as follows:

Pitch Platforms Sdn Bhd

However, the person must send pitchIN the proof of transfer by attaching the receipt and your name to the email address: with the Subject Heading: KMY 2016
