PRESS RELEASE



MALACCA, 18 Nov. 2015: Chevron Malaysia Limited, which carries the retail brand Caltex®,

successfully completed its annual community campaign, Caltex Fuel Your School in partnership with

MyKasih Foundation. In its fourth consecutive year, the Campaign had once again further raised the

awareness in driving change and providing equal self-development with proper classroom facilities for

students of high need schools in Malacca and Negeri Sembilan by enhancing a better environment and

further promoting the learning of Science, Technology, English and Mathematics.

“By reaching out to schools in Malaysia one state at a time, we are glad that the Caltex Fuel Your School

campaign has made a difference and this is especially important for high need schools as more than 50

percent of the students are from low income households. In line with our global initiative, Chevron’s

Energy for Learning, this community campaign truly helps to support learning-based programmes –

whether it’s acquiring new knowledge, gaining new skills or exposing individuals to different ways of

thinking,” said Policy, Government & Public Affairs Manager, Mokhtar Ali Ismail.

This year, out of 25 classroom projects funded for Malacca, Sekolah Kebangsaan Air Molek struck the

most wins and was awarded with learning materials worth RM30,000 in total. The submissions

contributed to a 60 percent increase in project submissions compared to the overall campaign last year.

“When I heard about the Caltex Fuel Your School campaign running again for this year, I immediately

started working on a project proposal, and I am thankful for this opportunity together with the team I had

with me to produce The English Transformers materials. The process definitely helped to motivate the

students and also added support to win this submission,” expressed Siti Fatimah Daud, an English teacher

from Sekolah Menengah Hang Kasturi, a school that also nabbed a spot among the 25 projects that were

selected.  She also commented that she aims to improve the quality of English with her students in terms

of vocabulary and to further empower her students to be more confident when conversing in the English

language.


The learning materials awarded to all winning projects of participating schools in both Malacca and

Negeri Sembilan created an impact reaching a total of 1,241 students. In Malacca itself, the Campaign

had reached out to more than 800 students with the support of Caltex® users who purchased petrol using

the Caltex® JOURNEY Card from 15 October to 14 November with RM2 pledged to the classroom

projects. Funds generated were channeled towards purchasing materials such as computer notebooks,

projectors, interactive white boards, electronic dictionaries and laboratory equipment, to name a few.

Present at the closing ceremony of the Caltex Fuel Your School campaign, Managing Director of

MyKasih Foundation, Jeffrey Perera said, “We applaud the concerted effort by all parties involved in

making the Fuel Your School campaign a success in Malacca. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to

work with Chevron once again to create a nurturing environment for students in pursuit for knowledge.

We look forward to supporting community learning initiatives through our partnership with Chevron.”

The Caltex Fuel Your School campaign is part of Chevron’s Energy for Learning – a global initiative

which encourages partnerships with local communities, government bodies or non-profit organisations to

expand learning opportunities as well as to support the development of both the social and economic

vitality of these communities.

“For the fourth consecutive year, we are very pleased with the project submissions and the campaign that

is helping to drive more and more schools to participate. We hope to continue this community effort and

extend it to more states in the coming years,” added Mokhtar at the closing ceremony of the Caltex Fuel

Your School campaign in Malacca.
