The spirit of caring for the community holds sway among students of INTI College Sarawak, who have taken up the cause of supporting the Kuching Autistic Association’s building project.
Under the leadership of INTIMA – the Student Government of INTI College Sarawak – the students have initiated a series of fundraising activities to support the Association’s plan for four new blocks of buildings for administrative, educational and vocational training purposes.

The fundraisers included Charity Car Wash, Charity Breakfast and INTI Charity Night 2011. Charity Night brought out the best in the students, who put on dazzling performances in true celebration of music and dancing, and had the audience calling for an encore.
“The event was a heart-warming experience that gave us a better perspective of service to humanity and the opportunity to become well-rounded global citizens,” said Liew Hui Yin, Organizing Chairperson for Charity Night. “As members of the community, it is important that each of us recognize and act upon our responsibility to contribute to the betterment of society.
Total proceeds from Charity Night amounting to RM4,850 were presented to Dr. Yao Sik Chi, President of the Kuching Autistic Association during his recent visit to the College. INTI students’ commitment to the Association goes back to early this year, when INTIMA participated in its Charity Sale and Food Fair. During the event, the students set up a booth and sold sandwiches and pudding. Proceeds of more than RM1,000 were the students’ initial contribution to the building project.
INTI is a part of Laureate International Universities, the world’s largest private education network with a presence in 28 countries, with more than 60 accredited universities and 130 campuses, serving more than 650,000 students globally.
