Background of the Kids:
The Kids come from underprivileged families. Their parents have to work odd jobs or work long hours to
meet ends meet and to put them in school. These families are not the poorest or the poor but they are
the working poor, the ones who fall through the safety nets and not eligible for complete assistance from
the government. However, due to being underprivileged, they are not able to afford for their kids
developmental avenues like tuition or motivational courses offered by Adam Khoo etc. These kids are
losing out in such aspects as compared to their peers from the middle class families. Moreover, the cycle
of poverty is a vicious cycle. Most of these kids live in homes where there is not much positivity or good
values inculcated in them. Losing out on opportunities to excel in school, many are unable to develop the
cognitive skills for better learning, communication and leadership. Due to the same reasons, many of
these kids also inherit negative traits or qualities from either their parents or their circle of friends whom
they “lepak” with. Thus, one of our aims for these kids at Yusra, is to help these kids get up, get equipped
to catch up in the race and inculcate them with good values and behavior that can transform them into
better individuals.

Story Board:
In a faraway land called, Chai Chee Madagascar; a recent massive forest fire sets homes of the 5 clans
ablaze. Now that Chai Chee is inhabitable, they have to begin their journey to find a new space to build
their new homes. However, it would not be an easy journey from the clans. Each clan in the faraway land
has to rebuild their homes by embarking on a journey of interesting challenges. In each clan, there are
Protectors who will have to work together with each other to complete the tasks given by Guardian Angel
(Facilitators) by also protecting their Villagers (volunteers). While rebuilding their homes may sound easy,
clans are to be aware of the malicious Hunters (Yusra Programmers) who will steal and snatch the things
from the appointed Mascot from each clan. To save their Mascots, Protectors will have to perform their
cheers to the Hunters in order to be freed or ward them off.

Volunteers are like Mirrors to the kids. You are like a mentor for the day. You should be close to them,
be friendly with them and be likeable to them. So in any activity or any time of the day, volunteers are
to guide the kids and relate their experience to these 3 frameworks:




Since it’s their show, these kids also have to ‘protect’ you from getting ‘tagged’ by the hunters. Last but
not least, thank you so much for your help and I hope you have a blast tomorrow with the kids!
