May and June 2020 saw another 7 projects got funded on Incitement. Here’s an overview.

Collaboration between NAMA Foundation and Taylor’s Community

A big thank you to NAMA Foundation for funding not one, not two,  but three COVID19 relief projects by Taylor’s Community, who, through their projects, is providing much needed relief for those most affected by COVID19 and the (C)MCO in Malaysia. Have a look at these three projects that NAMA Foundation and Taylor’s are currently collaborating on.

  • Covid-19 B40 Relief
    The COVID19 B40 relief project by Taylor’s identified a rise in mental stress amongst their beneficiaries, while concluding at the same time that they lack essential groceries to help get them through this crisis. Therefore, the aim of this project is to run online stress relief and emotional expressive activities with women and children while rewarding them groceries.
  • Give back through Education
    Give back through Education identified the top 2 needs among B40 entrepreneurs which includes groceries and business development. Thus, this project aims to provide online business development classes and groceries as prizes for the participants.

Food Aids Project By KeBaT

Through Food Aids Project, which was sponsored by Nestlé, KeBaT is trying to help B40 communities and undocumented people in Sabah by providing food packs during the Restricted Movement Control Order (RMCO). During this RMCO, many of the local people from B40- and undocumented marginalised communities were affected. Most of them cannot do their usual work. They rely on their daily income basis. If they don’t work, they will not get their income for that particular day. Some of them are single mothers, widows, and those who works at a small shop. During this RMO all the shops except the essential ones were ordered to close temporarily. This left them with no income at all for them to sustain their daily livings.

This project by KeBat will definitely help to alleviate and ease the burden faced by these communities, especially during this crucial period. Their goal is to help more than 450 families in Sabah.

SERUM Initiative

SERUM Iniative was started with the aim of providing sanitisers and face masks for the underserved communities such as urban poor and refugees. After providing 327 hand sanitisers for 287 families during April, SERUM received an increasing demand from the NGOs and social enterprises in Malaysia as the communities they are serving are in need of these supplies, fearing that there would be an increase of COVID19 outspread across the dense populations with inadequate access of healthcare supplies. Seeing that there is a dire need for this, SERUM gathered a team to scale up the SERUM initiative, to serve more communities and making a bigger impact.

Inaccessibility of healthcare supplies among underserved communities (urban poor and refugees) causes a risk in COVID19 outspread. Every RM10 of donation will allow SERUM to provide 1 bottle of 50ml hand sanitiser and 5 face masks for the communities. Village Grocer stepped up tho the plate with an in-kind donation that will enable SERUM to provide 1 bottle of 50ml hand sanitiser and 5 face masks for the communities they are trying to help.

Liter of Light #50

Liter of Light is a cost-effective, open-source technology that is actively implemented in 29 countries, of which Malaysia, run by Incitement, is the 2nd largest chapter worldwide. Liter of Light #50, which was sponsored by Prudential BSN Takaful, aims to build and install solar powered street lights at a village in Pahang. The village lacks access to basic necessities such as electricity and the lives of its residents will greatly benefit by installing the solar powered lights. With the mission to eradicate the energy poverty in Malaysia, Liter of Light Malaysia continues to increase access to energy for under privileged communities in the country, especially in areas where the need is great.
