Alam Kreatif children from our Young Chef sponsored classes joined the PUAK Payong Kidzpreneur Bazaar at Jaya One. The children’s event was organized by Persatuan Untuk Anak Kita (PUAK) Payong, a fellow NGO that focuses on children 18 years and below that advocates SAFE SPACE through building children’s self-esteem, knowledge and skills.
It was an eye opening experience for the group of 6 as it was their first time participating in a bazaar and selling their products to public. This experience improved their self-confidence as they were placed out of their comfort zone and learned to adapt to different environments. We hope that events like this will encourage them to try new things and overcome their fears in the future.
Products sold included Sweet & Savoury Popiah made by the children and bracelets made by children from previous classes. On the same day, there was also the PUAK Payong 2019 Design Competition. The aim of this competition is to create awareness and promote the understanding of what is a “safe space” among children and adults. A big congratulations to one of our student for winning the first prize!
We would like to thank PUAK Payong, founder Syed Azmi Alhabshi and his team for giving the children an opportunity to take part in this unique bazaar. It was a wonderful experience where we met other non-profit organizations and children championing different causes to make the world a better place.
