In keeping with our ongoing desire to harness the power of the Gen.T community, Generation T partnered with BMW Malaysia and Teach For Malaysia to invite 10 students from a local "high-need" school to spend an educational half-day at Kuala Lumpur’s leading aquarium.

The children, under the care of Teach For Malaysia fellow Kimberly Aw and two chaperones, were whisked to Aquaria KLCC from their public secondary school in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur in a fleet of BMW 6 Series GT cars, while five Gen.T honourees, including Iqbal Ameer, Faisal Ariff and Timothy Tiah, were transported in the all-new BMW 3 Series.

Teach For Malaysia aims to give underprivileged children access to a top-quality education by recruiting top graduates to teach them; at Aquaria KLCC, the children were paired with honourees for educational activities such as building an edible garden and feeding bamboo sharks. After a private tour of the aquarium, everyone adjourned for a three-course lunch at Dome KLCC, where each of the children was tasked with interviewing the honouree they were paired with.
