Contributing towards the social well-being of our communities.
Built and maintained 3 Astro Hostels since 2009 for students at SK Magandai and SK Malinsau in Sabah, as well as SK Sungai Paku in Sarawak.
Over 212 students out of 430 students stay in the hostels and save valuable time on their daily school commute, which may even take days in inclement weather. These facilities collectively save students about 125,000 hours per year in commuting time that are instead utilised for educational, sporting or leisure endeavours to improve students’ well-being.
In addition, Astro has been empowering and assisting these hostel students by providing boarding facilities, laptops, study materials, and educational supplies.
Our Walk for Education event in 2022 attracted over 2,000 supporters and raised RM140,000 which was channeled to Astro Hostels.
