WE ARE MALAYSIA

“I call upon you all to dedicate yourselves to the service of the new Malaya: to work and strive with hand and brain to create a new nation, inspired by the ideals of justice and liberty – a beacon of light in a disturbed and distracted world.”

The year was 1957. The crowd was 20,000 people strong. The heavy rain earlier that day did not stop the people from streaming through the turnstiles of Stadium Merdeka. The Duke of Gloucester, representing Queen Elizabeth II, handed over the Instrument of Independence to Malaysia’s first Prime Minister. The Union Jack was lowered. And with those spellbinding words, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj set out his vision for a new nation – one built upon the values of justice, liberty, and unity.

THERE ARE 30 MILLION MALAYSIAN CITIZENS

Malaysia is a nation at crossroads. What are we going to do about it?

PROJEK57:

A MOVEMENT OF HOPE


Projek57 is non-political and non-partisan. We are driven by positive values and uniting factors. Projek57 was birthed to encourage Malaysians to join a movement of nation-builders who sow hope for our nation. Projek57 was created as a social enterprise which sells premium quality, 100% made in Malaysia cotton tee shirts and other merchandise, featuring fresh and relevant home-grown designs with positive and meaningful messages about our nation. We organise and participate in community events. Projek57 also desires to be a means through which those who have less will find new opportunities to break free from the cycle of poverty. 40% of profits are channelled towards empowering single mothers and underprivileged youth programs.


YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE


Projek57 embodies the spirit of 1957, reflecting it in our present – and carrying it into our future. We believe our future depends on how well many different kinds of people can live and work together. We believe every Malaysian has a share in the future of Malaysia and a part to play in shaping that future, even in the smallest of ways. Will you come with us?

WHO ARE WE?

Projek57 was started by two friends and business partners of over 10 years who both grew up in a multicultural environment. They sought to use their entrepreneurial experience to create a social enterprise that would encourage friends and community to do something, no matter how much or how little, towards the better future of Malaysia, and help someone in need at the same time.

THIS IS MY NATION.

THIS IS OUR NATION.
