I am doing a social enterprise project to help the community. The social project is handled by my partners and ex-students (two lovely girls Husna and Sarah). They will be staying at the shop in the meantime I will be staying with my family at Nilai about 30 minutes drive. It is the same concept as the charity shop whereby the locals can send their preloved items and then we sell at a very reasonable price. Any surpluses will be donated for good causes. The volunteers will be paid RM5 per hour. A bit about my family, I have 5 children and my wife is a lecturer at the same university I am working with. We are working at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia.
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
You can meet many Malaysians who came and donate and also the customers who buy the preloved items. Meet with potential medias and discuss about financial education and economy with me.
Assist to sort clothing, tag the preloved items donated from the community. Talk to the community, make publicity online and offline. Just helping people.
We have rooms with 2 single beds separated for men and women upstairs the shop. It is not luxorius but could be a nice place to rest for the day.
Helpers can give talk to my students at the university on their experience and their country. I am a lecturer at a public university however this need to be pre-arranged one month earlier.
