Forest Interactive Celebrates UN International Day of Education in Malaysia and Indonesia

International Education Day

February 14, 2022

As the United Nations upholds sanctioned international days as powerful tools for advocacy, Forest Interactive commemorated the International Day of Education with CSR campaigns in both Malaysia and Indonesia.

Aligning with this year’s theme for International Day of Education “Changing Course, Transforming Education”, Forest Interactive was able to create awareness on the role of education in bringing global peace and sustainable development, strengthen the power of education, and steer youths towards the digital transformation.

Malaysia-based talents paid a visit to the Dignity for Children Foundation to teach students about internet safety, specifically how to surf and navigate the internet securely. Dignity for Children Foundation is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that provides holistic care and education to marginalized and underprivileged children in urban areas. It is located in Sentul Raya Boulevard, Kuala Lumpur. They have 1,559 children from age 2 to 18 under their care. 

During a two-hour workshop with students aged between 9 and 12 years old, volunteers taught and shared threats that lived on the internet such as viruses, spyware, spam, hacks, and more. Later, they also engaged in a poster-making activity to showcase what they've learned.

In response to the ongoing global pandemic, Forest interactive contributed hygiene kits consisting of face masks and hand sanitizers to promote health and safety among the students. 200 children also received stationeries and school supplies as part of the campaign.

Coloring Session At Rumah Belajar Gartala

Over in Java, Forest Interactive Indonesia visited Rumah Belajar Gartala, an educational charity community initiative by several passionate college students. Volunteering talents interacted and colored together with the children over the session before gifting them a goody bag each, in addition to a contribution of essential teaching equipment for the organization.

Rumah Belajar Gartala provides education for around 30 unprivileged children who have dropped out of school around Sarijadi area, West Bandung. This campaign is proudly Forest Interactive’s first CSR activity in Bandung.

The SDGs related to this CSR initiatives are 1, 4, and 10: No Poverty, Quality Education, as well as Reduce Inequalities. For more information on Forest Interactive’s sustainability initiatives, visit
