UMCares' STARS: Dr Rusaslina Idrus (Gender Studies) & Dr Jillian Ooi (Geography Dept)

In honour of Teacher's Day

UMCares celebrates our Teaching Stars!!! 

Dr Rusaslina Idrus (Gender Studies) & Dr Jillian Ooi (Geography)

Dr Rusaslina Idrus created Kedai Jalanan - A Free Market for the Homeless so that her students could begin to understand issues surrounding people in difficult situations. Together they canvassed for much-needed items and gave them out (with dignity) to those in need. The plan is to hold this monthly event with various soup kitchen organisations so that the students get a chance to empathise with, volunteer for and give back to people on the streets...

As part of their Environmental Studies programme, Dr Jillian Ooi brought 48 students to the UMCROPS urban farm for a barefoot immersion in soil, dung and crops... 

It was a hands-on introduction to sustainable food sources and how to make a difference for the planet (and their own health) from the ground-up.

In both of these programmes, it was clear that the students were hooked... 

THANK YOU to Dr Rusalina & Dr Jillian for your passion and initiative in nurturing our citizens of the future!
