SERDANG - The handover of the Batik Canting painting to YAM Tengku Syarif Laksamana Perlis, Dato' Seri Diraja Syed Razlan Syed Putra Jamalullail took place at his office.
Dato' Seri Diraja Syed Razlan has purchased a painting made by UPM staff which was exhibited at the Sultan Abdul Samad Library UPM in order to generate a scholarship known as the Biasiswa 2 Generasi in an effort to aid UPM students who need study assistance.
This noble effort was established by Isnain Ali, Head of Administration at Co-Curriculum and Student Development Centre with his wife and son who is also UPM staff.
This is one of his contributions before his service ends in October 2022.
According to him, this is part of the contribution given to UPM which has taken care of him and his family’s welfare throughout his service at UPM.
Batik Canting 2 Generasi was exhibited at the Sultan Abdul Samad UPM Library for a month. Throughout the exhibition period, many UPM staff and alumni have contributed to the fundraising efforts for student scholarship funding.
RM15,000 was successfully collected through the exhibition and sale of batik canting paintings and has successfully funded Biasiswa 2 Generasi.
It is hoped that in the future more UPM staff and alumni will come up with various ideas and assistance in an effort to contribute back to the alma mater.
