HTSE Programme @ National Expo & Forum (NATEF) 2006, Malaysia

In August 2006, RAS was invited by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, Malaysia to share the Happy Toilet School Education programme at the NATEF 2006 with both local and international delegates. One of our beneficiaries, Zhangde Primary School, was also invited to deliver a presentation on their Learning Restrooms concept.

Both presentations were very well-received by the 200 delegates. In fact, the HTSE programme has inspired the Quality Restroom Association of Malaysia (QRAM) to initiate a similar educational programme for the 10,000 schools in Malaysia.

Here's a peek of the 2-day conference.
