Who are we

Projek Pelita was founded in 2011 as one of the social development initiatives under UKEC (United Kingdom and EIRE Council of Malaysian Students), with the objective of providing assistance for educational purposes for those living in rural Sarawak, irrespective of race, religion or creed.

This year, Projek Pelita aims to host the biggest book drive in Malaysia’s history. The books will then be used to restock rural areas school or public libraries in Sarawak. Projek Pelita strongly believes that education would be the means to break the poverty cycle and to uplift the quality of life and standard of living of Malaysians in rural areas.


Our aims

As the Malay saying goes, ‘Ilmu Pelita Hidup’- education is vital for society development; be it inside or outside the classroom. However, sad but true, there seems to be a major shortage of books and educational resources for children and students in Malaysia. The major concern is that students who experience this shortage of reading materials are mostly living in rural areas, who are most likely cannot afford to buy books and other educational needs for themselves if not provided for.

To address this issue and as part of our efforts to create awareness and promote voluntarism within Malaysian youth, last year, the UKEC came up with ‘Projek Pelita’ with the aim to host the biggest book drive in Malaysia’s history.


Our services

1. To expose the public to the rural area side of Malaysia, providing the whole nation the opportunity to help the disadvantaged students from poor backgrounds.

2. To provide assistance in the form of book donations or purchase of teaching and education aids (e.g. reading materials, computers, etc.) to be distributed to the poor and underprivileged primary and secondary school students.

3. To build or refurbish educational facilities in rural areas of Malaysia, such as school libraries, community libraries, resource centres with the aim to provide a comfortable and conducive place to study.

4. Raising education awareness by carrying out motivational programmes to rural areas students with school academic performance will be closely monitored by Projek Pelita committee.
