Stories / Testimonials

"Visual media is an essential component of learning and Kampus Astro is unique because it has the capability to reach every classroom in Malaysia. Working with Astro has helped us reach out to more students and have our educational content accessed beyond the physical classroom."

"Education has always been my passion. I am thankful for all the learning workshops, camps and classes that Astro Kasih organised for us in school. It was always fun and made me realise that I really enjoy mentoring. Now, I want to give that experience back to other students."
