Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Founder and Chairman SIDMA College), Puan Vanessanur Dalinte together with 20 SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah staff and 171 students collaborated with Hon Datuk Yeo Boon Hai (Mayor of Kota Kinabalu) and staff of Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) jointly organised a community service programme (gotong royong) to assist in the cleaning up the Tanjung Lipat Beach at Sepanggar Bay, Likas Kota Kinabalu on 25 November 2016.

The event took off at around 7.30 am in the morning with speeches by Dr Morni and Datuk Yeo. This was followed by light warming up aerobic dance to the tune of Jamilah song.

In his speech, Datuk Yeo thanked SIDMA College for continuously supporting DBKK activities, especially in the cleaning of this city. He hope that all citizens will continue to join efforts in ensuring cleaner city through inculcating self-consciousness by joining any of its cleaning activities.

According to Dr Morni, the main purpose of the activity was to provide hands-on opportunities for students to solve social problems collectively, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Such service or experiential learning challenges can inspires students to sharpen their related skills (communication, critical thinking, social, spiritual and more) in diverse learning contexts thus enabling them to find suitable career, passion and to face the current economic uncertainty.

Furthermore, SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah as a corporation is committed to protecting the environment around us through a variety of initiative designed to challenge and meeting responsibilities head-on just the way we expect students to act at work. Kota Kinabalu belongs to all of us. We must all help our DBKK to keep it clean. That means developing good citizens, willing to show initiatives, valuing resources and paying it forward. We encourage good citizenship by supporting organizations that cultivate meaningful opportunities for civic engagement by our students and members of the community, whether as volunteers or donors, he added.

Dr Morni took the opportunity to convey his appreciation to the Mayor, Datuk Yeo for providing opportunities to SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah citizens to clean the venue to give back to society and to reap the benefit from this experiential learning. He also thanked Datuk Mayor for taking his time off to participate in this noble event.

Dr Morni also thanked all SIDMA College staff and students for their collaboration and support in organising the event.
