BIBD organized an outing to the Brunei Book Fair at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas for its 35 ALAF students. The students showed their delight at the opportunity to browse reading material that can help support their educational aspirations in their pursuit of academic success.
At the book fair, BIBD ALAF Programme students were provided with a provision to purchase selected material, while at the same time, allowing them to manage their expenses to focus on essential education materials.
BIBD today awarded BIBD ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for an Aspiring Future) programme scholarships to thirty-one new students from the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA), and Ministry of Education (MoE), bringing the total number of students enrolled to 166.
BIBD through the Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future (ALAF) programme held a three-day ALAF Ta’aruf Camp including a Public Speaking Workshop and ALAF Convention.
