Maxis lights up Deepavali celebrations with SJKT Ladang Senawang students, teachers, and parents

Maxis employees recently brought Deepavali joy by celebrating the festival of lights at Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil (SJKT) Ladang Senawang, Negeri Sembilan.

The day was filled with excitement as 22 Maxis mSquad volunteers provided education-related donations, and curated engaging games and activities for an unforgettable festive celebration with the more than 500 students, teachers, and members of the Ladang Senawang community at the school.

In the spirit of giving back, mSquad volunteers also initiated a book contribution drive by Maxis employees, and successfully collected 400+ books to furnish the school’s library. Maxis also contributed refurbished laptops for the school, whiteboards for selected classrooms, and gave packages of essential learning materials to selected students.

To wrap up the celebratory day with an extra touch of warmth and togetherness, everyone was treated to a delicious lunch spread.

This year’s Deepavali CSR project at SJKT Ladang Senawang was the result of a successful crowdsourcing effort within Maxis, where a winning employee’s idea was given the necessary support and funding by the company to give back to the person’s chosen community.
