  • Description

    Description

    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.
