Best Buddies Friendship Walk 2014
Best Buddies is a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. UCSI University is the only college in Malaysia that had been identified to offer this program to special needs youths.
Sri Eden is proud to be identified as the only centre, for now, to be a part of this pilot program in efforts to create an opportunity for our children to socialize with peers of their age.
The community will benefit from their participation through their new acceptance of diversity and knowledge of children with special needs.
The BEST BUDDIES FRIENDSHIP WALK, which was held at Taman Tasik Permaisuri on the 6th of September 2014 kick started with entertaining performances by invited guests; Clarence Kang, an accomplished pianist who is Autistic and, Bracez, a violinist. 15 children from Sri Eden along with their loving families participated in the walk.
Sri Eden would once again, like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to UCSI, Best Buddies Club for sharing this opportunity with our children and their families!
