Together, We Empower
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the education system to move to online teaching. We are driven to support and ensure that these young minds keep learning, so that they can continue to strive, so that their dreams are not halted, so that they have a better future. Empowering those who have big dreams to achieve great things — that’s what People of Action do. Learn more at RotarySungaiPetani.org.

Supporting Education is one of Rotary's Areas of Focus.
