Day 143 Task – Toyota Foundation International Grant Program 2020

It’s almost Hari Raya and there are plenty of house chores need to be done. Cleaning and tidying up. Because of that, I did not perform any official task today. I’m sorry. So, how does our house looks like after cleaning?

Anyway, I did read about this Toyota Foundation International Grant Program 2020 which CEE will prepare a proposal for. There was a meeting yesterday but I couldn’t join because I was having this Active Learning Discussion.  Today I had the opportunity to check out to discuss a bit with Dr. Aziatul Niza and Dr. Nurzal Effiyana about the project where I am part of the team member. OK, need to work on this after Hari Raya soon. InsyaAllah.

The International Grant Program of the Toyota Foundation continues the sixth year of its program “Cultivating Empathy Through Learning from Our Neighbors: Practitioners’ Exchange on Common Issues in Asia”, focusing on countries in East and Southeast Asia. The grant program focuses on deepening mutual understanding and knowledge-sharing among people on the ground in target countries who are finding solutions to shared issues.
