8.0 Suggestions

Berjaya Cares Foundation carries out a lot of charity activities. Besides healthcare, the foundation can also fund the handicapped people. Even though Malaysia’s government has provided various facilities for them, I doubt these people feel very comfortable travelling around using public transportations. Berjaya Cares Foundation can help to provide buses which are specially modified to cater to handicapped people. Such buses can ease their burden while travelling. Besides that, the foundation can help expose handicapped people to handicraft skills such as beadwork, needlework and wood craving. They can hire volunteers to conducts lessons for these people. By providing them with such productive skills, Berjaya actually is giving a second chance to them to live independently. They can produce their own work, sell it and earn some living for themselves. Finally, to ease their pain, Berjaya can provide free physiotherapy classes for them as a way of helping them to get better.
Malaysia has a staggering dropout rate as huge numbers of youths are leaving schools even before sitting for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM). These youth then start venturing into the wrong path by becoming drug addicts, thieves, gangsters or sometimes work a low-income job such as washing dishes and washing cars. Therefore, to help this group of people, Berjaya foundation can offer them technical and vocational courses so that they have some knowledge and therefore would be able to secure themselves a steady income throughout their lives. These skills include agriculture and occupational courses. To further enhance these dropouts’ lives, the foundation can also arrange for them to acquire some soft skills such as communication skills, teamwork skills, and problem solving and conflict resolution skills. These skills are for the betterment of an individual and are always looked for in an employee. Sadly, even university graduates lack these skills these days. Therefore, by providing dropout with these important soft skills, they have good chances of prospering in life rather than to live in the underworld in a negative way.
Finally, Berjaya Times Foundation can pledge to look after our abandoned golden generation. Due to various factors such as modernism and irresponsibility of children, many old people are sent to live in old folk’s homes. Since many homes are run by NGO’s, they have poor living conditions. Thus, the foundation can help these homes by replenishing those devastated old folks homes in the towns and rural areas. Many homes lack caretakers too. Berjaya can also do its part here by hiring unemployed people to work in these homes by providing them with a steady salary. This is a win-win situation for all. Berjaya gets to complete its CSR, old folks are well taken care of while the unemployed are now doing something good and noble. Everyone is happy. In addition, Berjaya can get some professionals to come in and provide classes for these old folks so that they can spend their time well. Classes such as Tai-chi and simple mental games not only entertain these people but it also gets them moving and thinking critically making them healthy and happy. In conclusion, helping the handicapped, school dropouts and old folks are few of the many things Berjaya Cares Foundation can still do for the society. The list may go miles long but all one needs to do charity is a good heart. Berjaya has that and thus, they do not have to do many things at once, they only have to do one or two things but do them carefully with full of love and passion. This is for the betterment of the country.

...Initial PR Plan Comm 481 - PROBLEM STATEMENT - About 75 percent of SURVIVORS’ budget comes from federal grants. Although the organization has enough funding to operate effectively now, the lack of a significant, more stable source of funding has limited what they can plan to do in the future.

Defining Pr

...Defining Public Relations Public Relations (PR) has evolved throughout its existence to fit numerous business functions and intents. Some companies refer to PR as the department in charge of publicity and gaining attention. This definition alone can have several meanings. One meaning could be the intent to gain free publicity and attention through news and word of mouth. Another meaning could include the placement of media such as print, radio, and television. Sometimes media buying is handled through the marketing department, or as a joint venture between the two departments. These examples help explain the ambiguity behind the definition of PR. This enigma has attracted much attention from practitioners in the field, and a few main opinions have emerged as to PR’s purpose (Strong, 2011).

A PRSA National Assembly decreed the official definition of PR to be, “public relations helps an organization and its publics adapt mutually to each other” (2011, para 3). The PRSA adds further clarity to this definition be explaining the word organization was chosen to convey the idea that PR is a concept that can be used by many organizations not just businesses. The word ‘publics’ is used to include every stakeholder of an organization, not......
