Vale Extends Support For Neurodiverse Education In Manjung

MANJUNG, October 13 – Vale in Malaysia continues its commitment to neurodiverse education in Manjung today through the contribution of medical devices, along with teaching and learning facilities for the benefit of the students at Pertubuhan Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti (PDK) Asy Syamsu. This initiative, which incurs a contribution of approximately MYR 8,000 from Vale, is in line with the company’s global strategy to empower local communities in locations where it operates through strategic socioenvironmental investments in the area of education.

Chief Executive Officer Rodrigo Ribeiro de Araújo said, “the sponsorship for PDK Asy Syamsu is a continuation of our concerted effort to support educational institutions that facilitate the learning and development of children living in the Manjung district. An education system that is neurodiversity-inclusive is key towards bolstering a sustained community development in Perak, and we look forward to doing more in the area in the future”.

The distribution is a continuance of the ‘Vale Bersama Manjung’ initiative, which aims to promote inclusive community development in Manjung and to assist socioeconomically vulnerable groups.

Shaiful Faisal Haji Salleh, the chairperson of the association said, “We are very appreciative of the assistance and collaboration provided by Vale, as it provides better means for the teachers to educate the children more effectively. The sponsorship of a breathing aid for little Muhammad Fathih (2 years old) is a blessing and will improve his quality of life. We are grateful for the support and look forward to a future of continuous relationship with Vale”.
