Our 1st Meeting!

We all met up over coffee to chit-chat and discuss on our future plans for IEP 2005.

I was happy to see the commitment my fellow friends/volunteers had towards making our IEP kick-start session a success. Everyone was throwing ideas - brilliant ones too!

"Let's do a book-drive to collect books for the kids and let's bring them out for movie outings! Why don't we gauge their level of English first? How can we monitor their progress?" and so on..

After all the brainstorming, we then decided that for a start, we will concentrate on the primary school kids first & expand as and when needed.

Two heads are definitely better than one!!
Thanks for all your inputs and cooperation..

Who Are We?

We are volunteers helping orphans from Rumah Ilham @ Pinggiran Taman Tun Dr Ismail to improve their command in English Language via various classroom and outdoor activities.

Currently they are 56 boys in the orphanage studying in primary 4 to secondary 5.

We have our Ilham English Program (IEP) Sessions once every 2 weeks - typically on Friday evenings from 8.30pm to 10.00pm.

We are linked to Rumah Ilham Volunteers Group (refer to Rumah Ilham YahooGroups! or Rumah Ilham Blogspot) and currently still expanding.

If you are interested to know more about IEP or would like to volunteer, please feel free to email us at: ilham_ep@yahoo.com

'Ilham' in English means 'Inspiration'..
This blog is created for us to share our 'Ilham' or 'Inspiring' experiences with you!!
