Dear DASwk family and friends,

As 2018 comes, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the outstanding support, dedication and commitment you have given to DASwk. Our heartfelt thanks to our Patron, Datin Hjh Azerina Mohd Arip and to our Advisor, YB Dato Sri Hajah Fatimah Abdullah, Minister for Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development, Sarawak. Our deepest gratitude to our teaching and administrative staff. Our warmest appreciation to all parents, children, volunteers, interns, project partners, donors, sponsors and members of the public.


Undoubtedly, 2017 has been a remarkable year for us. Our mission to advocate for children and young adults with dyslexia and other learning disabilities has been gaining strong foothold among various government agencies, educational institutions, non-governmental organizations, parents, teachers and the general public.


The following are some of the successes achieved this year:


·         Awarded the “Best NGO for 2017” by the Social Welfare Department of Sarawak.

·         Our SMARTER*phonics programme has been adopted by the state government and is currently being used in all pre-schools of the State Education Department.

·         We hosted an Art Exhibition and Workshop by renowned scribble artist, Mr Vince Low.

·         Our maiden big walk event “Walk with A Difference 2017” was a commendable success; thanks to the combined efforts of all those involved in its organisation.


Alongside the above successes, our existing programmes too have gained increasing support

and recognition from many sectors of our community. Among these programmes are:

·         Literacy for Social Inclusion Programme at SK Metalun, Baram in collaboration with Sarawak Energy Berhad.

·         Character Building Camp 2017 at Union Yes Retreat, Lundu for children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities in collaboration with State Social Welfare Department.

·         6th Annual Rope Skipping Competition for individuals with dyslexia and other learning disabilities in collaboration with the State Social Welfare Department, State Education Department, Sarawak State Library and UNIMAS Medical Society.

·         Literacy Enhancement Project for Bahasa Melayu and English among Inmates of Henry Gurney School, Puncak Borneo, Kuching in collaboration with the Ministry of Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development, State Education Department and Prisons Department.

·         Kem Literasi 3M (Membaca, Mengeja dan Menulis) at Bumi Jati Camp, Shah Alam upon invitation by Dyslexia Association of Selangor.

On another note, we remain steadfast in the realisation of our vision of establishing the Dyslexia

Learning Institute on a piece of land granted by the state government. This institute will offer more classrooms to the growing demand of many children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities and hostel facilities to families from outside Kuching. A big “Thank You” to all our donors and sponsors who have contributed generously towards our DASwk building fund project. We are still a long way off from achieving our target but we are committed and will continue vigorously to raise the required funds to build our institute. Please continue to support and help us realize this dream.


Let us remind ourselves that children with dyslexia are potentially gifted. At DASwk, we strive to ensure that “Every child can read and write at their age-appropriate and mental capacity level” and to give them the gift of literacy.


Happy New Year 2018!


Best wishes from The President, Executive Committee, members and staff of Dyslexia Association of Sarawak

Featured Movie
Taare Zameen Par, Like Stars on Earth (2007) Full Movie English Subtitle here

This is a beautiful movie sensibly made to appeal to all sorts of audience across all strata of society. It touches a chord in your heart and connects with everybody. No one is left out. It does not matter if you are a parent, uncle, aunt, teacher, brother or sister. It's sure to move you. I dare say, TAARE ZAMEEN PAR is a commercial success as well as it will receive critical acclaim. Aamir Khan scores big time with his debut as a director.

But the star here is not Aamir, its Darsheel Safary, who plays the central character of Ishaan Awasti. Ishaan is a bubbly eight-year-old who sees a different world, always getting into fights and always faring badly in school. While his elder brother is a bright student, Ishaan has spent two years in the third standard.

Exasperated, his father packs him off to a boarding school as a punishment. Already struggling with studies, Ishaan now has to deal with the pangs of separation. If earlier he would paint the canvass bright with colours, now he does nothing of the sort. In school, he has gone from bad to worse, but no one seems to know the reason for his dilemma. The truth is, he is dyslexic. In short, Ishaan has a learning disorder marked by impairment of the ability to recognize and comprehend written words.
