Like many caring Malaysians, you may wonder at times if you or your organisation could play a role in helping our government shape our students into confident and well-informed knowledge workers of tomorrow. Improving education is everyone’s business. The New Straits Times (NST) is always striving to provide necessary support and create related activities towards improving the standard of English language among students.

The New Straits Times English Development Programme welcomes the involvement of individuals or corporate citizens as our Partners in Education. This programme is one of the ways you can help the young Malaysians towards a holistic education.

What is NST 3Es?

The 3Es initiative is our genuine effort to bridge the urban-rural divide in English education. We provide students and teachers with the ‘living textbook’…the daily newspapers.

A continuation of our previous School Sponsorship Programme (SSP) which was introduced in August 2005, the 3Es programme welcomes sponsors who are looking to give back to society and help the needy students to develop their English proficiency.

Having access to 3Es will not only help reinforce the curriculum, but will give students the opportunity to become more aware of and involved in the community and world around them

How can you help?

Anyone can be part of this noble initiative by sponsoring in cash. The amount that you have contributed will be converted into copies of New Straits Times newspapers, and will be delivered to schools listed under the Ministry’s most needy list as an additional teaching and learning materials for both teachers and students

>You can also choose a school from the state that you come from as a contribution to the place where you received your education.
