PTPI charters new Student Chapter in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
People to People International (PTPI) is proud to announce the newest addition to its expanding chapter network.
PTPI’s Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Eve Colors of Malaysia) Student Chapter was chartered on August 18, 2010. Josephine Chuah will serve as chapter president and Mary Bepono will serve as the chapter advisor. The Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Eve Colors of Malaysia) Student Chapter has many ideas for upcoming chapter projects. One of their ideas includes engaging in an education program for Somali Refugees in conjunction with the Soroptomist International Kuala Lumpur chapter.
PTPI Student Chapters are year-round, membership-based clubs that give students an opportunity to learn leadership skills, team building and personal accountability as well as promote peace and understanding in their school and community. Chapters generally focus on learning about other countries and cultures and participating in various humanitarian efforts. The result is a group of young leaders that have increased global awareness and that also work to make a positive difference in the world. There are more than 250 PTPI chapters worldwide with thousands of members committed to creating Peace through Understanding.
PTPI always welcomes new members to its chapter network in addition to groups of students that would like to join our student chapter program.
