Sustainability Still Going Strong!
Our Entrepreneurship Program, Taylor’s-CIMB Islamic Program Keusahawanan is entering strong into our 3rd year, with a little more flare!
“Extended our programs to the disabled people and refugees”
Foremost, we are extending our programs to
the disabled people and the refugees. Moreover, we are including a mentorship
structured where alumni are brought back to motivate, guide and encourage the
new participants. This truly reflects the sustainability of this concept and
how it could alleviate poverty at the core of it, where we see those who were
helped are helping others now. Thirdly, we are officially introducing the mini
Entrepreneurship Program, Program Keushawanan (PK) mini for children 7-12 years
olds. This idea was initiated last year where parents found it hard to take
care of their children and at the same time attend our entrepreneurship classes.
Hence, Taylor’s Community implemented PK mini to address this issue, where programs
for children are ran concurrently with the classes for the adults.
Today, we interviewed 74 new potential
entrepreneurs for our program, from the PPR communities and the disabled
people. Tomorrow, we will be recruiting refugees too. Out of all our
interviewees, 100% of them indicated that they are excited and will be fully
committed to this program. Throughout our briefing session, their active
participation in asking questions and playing ice-breaking games reflected
their enthusiasm and seriousness towards the program.
Another highlight would definitely regard
our volunteers; we were very encouraged by the sharing of their experiences and
how they really appreciated the opportunity to serve the community and engaging
themselves with the children. All of them gave positive feedback and want to
help out in this program again.
Overall, it was a bright start of PK2019! To volunteer and for more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook @CSR at Taylor’s Education Group to find out more!
