At Astro, we value education and lifelong learning to unlock the potential of our youths. Over the years, we collaborated with the Ministry of Education to provide complimentary Astro decoders and TV sets to over 10,500 schools nationwide through our Kampus Astro programme. This enables 50,000 students nationwide to access 16 learning channels.
We have since expanded the programme to paediatric and oncology wards, Schools in Hospitals and military hospitals.
We built Astro Hostels for SK Magandai, SK Sg Paku and SK Malinsau, located in the deep interiors of Sabah and Sarawak. These facilities save 220 students over 190,000 hours of daily commuting time in a normal school year. We also looked into their well-being by getting optometrists to these schools to check their eye sight.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we supplied food and daily essentials to 100 families in the vicinity of SK Malinsau who faced supply shortages.
Five new hostels and one youth centre were added to the Kampus Astro family in FY21 as part of our partnership with Starfish Foundation Malaysia, who share our vision of educating and empowering communities in East Malaysia.
Launched in 2012, Astro Kem Badminton (AKB) is a grassroots development programme to discover young badminton talents between the ages of 10 and 12 and uplift the standards of the sport.
To date, AKB has trained over 16,000 children, identifying promising players and providing coaching and mentorship to nurture them towards becoming professional athletes. AKB is proud to have played a role in the journey of many top national shuttlers.
Among our many success stories, is Jacky Kok. A former 2014 Astro Kem Badminton alumni and also a returning mentor in 2017, Jacky was a star performer throughout our programme and was eventually selected to train in the national youth squad representing Malaysia at badminton tournaments worldwide.
