Giving Back In The Ramakrishna Ashrama

Surprised? Yup Mamarazzi said lazy to blog on Saturday and Sunday but how come today got posts? There will be 3 posts .

Last week, Mamarazzi was contacted to do blog post about responsible blogging and time to give back. It's a good cause to promote this but how to write the blog posts. You know la...Mamarazzi not good at "proper" English. Later sure "kena tembak". 

Anyway, this is where Auntie Little Bird comes to the rescue. She had agreed to Guest Post here.  Mamarazzi can never write as well as her. Thank you very much Auntie Little Bird!

Anyway, not long ago, about 40 bloggers and the public visited The Ramakrishna Ashrama- an orphanage where the less fortunate children lives to distribute food, beverages and gadgets, sponsored by various commercial entities. It’s a philanthropic exercise not only by businesses in executing their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) but by everyone to give back to the society, thus making life more bearable for everyone in need. The event was made possible by Crowdpot Sdn Bhd (Event Organizer), Ninetology Malaysia, SUBWAY® (Suntech, iAvenue, & Leith Street branches), Chatime Malaysia, Langkawi Saga Travel & Tours Sdn. Bhd. and Alextan Artworks.

The Ramakrishna Ashrama (Orphanage), Penang is a charitable organization founded in 1938 under the inspiration and guidance of His Holiness Swami Bhaswarananda Maharaj who was then stationed at The Ramakrishna Mission, Singapore. Apart from spiritual activities, the Ashrama runs an orphanage, catering for both boys and girls with ages ranging from 6 to 20 years old
The orphanage admits needy orphaned children who are poor and need the help from the society to assist them with basic needs and education. The children in the home are given proper education and are well cared for so that they will grow up to be useful citizens. Besides education, the girls learn traditional dancing, cooking and housekeeping. Children excelling well academically are encouraged to pursue higher education.
