Seeds of Deeds (SOD) Empowerment Camp
In 2017, the positive feedback from our first ever flagship camp gave us the motivation to further continue Seeds of Deeds and come back with a bigger and better programme. With this in mind, we successfully organised and executed three camps in three different Malaysian states – a revisit camp in Kelantan, a main camp in Selangor and a mini camp in Pahang. The camps benefited a total of 237 students and recruited highly-skilled 93 volunteers. The modules and themes during the camps varied from team-building, english empowerment and personal development.
Aspire to Inspire
Aspire to Inspire is a continuous 3-year community engagement project. Unlike Seeds of Deeds, the beneficiaries of this project are the Orang Asli communities in rural areas. In 2017, the community of Kampung Tanah Gembor, FELDA Tangkak were our selected beneficiaries. The aim of this project was to create and develop the community’s soft skills to enable them to pursue sustainable businesses. We also engaged with Orang Asli children within the community and motivated them to pursue continuous education. The community hall was successful rebuilt with the help of volunteers and once finished, an empowerment camp for the children was conducted during the day and sewing classes for adults were conducted at night.
Beanstalk is a pilot project aimed towards orphans and less fortunate children supported by the state zakat foundation. Weekly activities were held every Sunday, at Rumah Jagaan Lambain Kasih, Kampung Sungai Penchala. The aim of these activities was to create a supportive and loving environment for the children as well as provide informal education. Classroom and outdoor activities (field trips and site visits) were carried out for the children. From this project, we were able to develop the children’s soft skills and create a family-like environment for them. We were fortunate enough to partner with MMC Corporation for the execution of this project in 2017.
