With this large number of alumni, if per person contributes RM10.00 consistently each month is sufficient to contribute to alma mater in mobilising various programmes including scholarships and other student reliefs.

As an entity with alumni as stakeholders, every contributions by alumni were distributed to the qualified students and the sponsors has the rights to make the decision,” Assoc.
