Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) is calling on Malaysians to be part of #MYBaikHati, a device crowdsourcing campaign to provide students from lower income (B40) community with improved access to digital learning and equal opportunity to stay ahead in today’s digital age.
Through the #MYBaikHati campaign, Digi is collecting used devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops from its employees, customers and the public, to be repurposed and distributed to B40 students. The year-long campaign kickstarted its pilot phase in Klang Valley yesterday, with plans to expand progressively nationwide in due course.
How can Malaysians contribute
To be part of this positive movement, those from Klang Valley can contribute through two easy options:
- Register interest to donate on the Yellow Heart #MYBaikHati campaign page and arrange for a pick-up; or
- Drop off devices at Digi’s designated collection points at Digi Store Klang or Digi Store
Devices that are accepted are smartphones, 4G-enabled tablets, Chromebooks with Windows 8 and above and laptops, all preferably with the chargers intact. Accepted devices must be in working condition and show no major damage, while devices that do not meet requirements will be disposed responsibly.
Donated devices will be assessed, refurbished and subsequently distributed to eligible B40 students at selected Digi’s Pusat Internet Komuniti (PIK). Students from the lower income group may check their eligibility at the nearest PIK, where their names will be validated against the B40 list provided by the government.
