Three Keningau English teachers win US grant contest

26th March, 2020

KOTA KINABALU: Kolej Vokasional (KV) Keningau English teachers, Mohd Al-Khalifa Mohd Affnan, Dr Sirhajwan Idek and Ibrahim Ismail, were announced winners of the Young Southeast Asian Leadership Initiative (YSEALI) Seeds for the Future Small Grants Competition on Wednesday for their Eureka Hub project.

This win has made the team the first in the state to receive a grant from the programme sponsored by the US Department of State and administered by Cultural Vistas.

It beat 24 others and won RM45,000 for a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) based training and competition programme aimed at honing the creative and communication skills of KV students and those living in Sabah’s interior areas.

“Both teacher and student are exposed to robotics, drones, entrepreneurialism, app design and graphic arts while working with other organisations and people,” team leader, Mohd Al-Khalifa, told Bernama Wednesday.

He added: “The results were announced officially in the Cultural Vistas website on March 25 but the competition started online in January with winners attending a workshop in Hanoi, Vietnam from Feb 5–6.”

The winner announcement online stated that “the workshop kicked off a year-long programme during which grantees will receive mentorship and coaching to help support the success and sustainability of their projects”.

Listed, too, was another Malaysian project called Miles which provides academic mentorship and is aimed at improving economic conditions in low-income communities in Penang. – Bernama
