EMPOWERMENT
Helping our Orang Asli retail trainees come out of their comfort zone to acquire new skills in retail.

Building People. Building Nation.

We believe that the empowerment of single mothers and underprivileged youths are a means through which they may find new opportunities to break free from the cycle of poverty.


We began our journey to empower underprivileged youths at our Atria Shopping Mall outlet in January 2016. Our first 2 retail trainees were Miri binti Adek and Armizainizam a/l Bahari from the orang asli community.


They were introduced by SOLS 24/7, an award-winning humanitarian organization, committed to serve, educate and empower poor and underserved communities.

As at June 2017, Projek57 has engaged 15 orang asli retail trainees.

We encourage our orang asli retail trainees to come out of their comfort zone to acquire new skills in retail. They learn communication skills in addition to the retail skills. We encourage them to persevere and to build their confidence.

As an added incentive to their allowance, our orang asli retail trainees receive RM5-00 for every T-shirt sold by them.

Get Involved

If you are interested, please submit our Volunteer Form and we will contact you soonest possible.

A pilot integration in October 2016, between a group of 12 students from Taylor’s University Business School and our orang asli retail trainees proved successful. The business school students experienced what social entrepreneurship and empowerment entailed, and the orang asli retail trainees felt accepted as equals which added to their confidence.

Since November 2016, we have invited volunteers to work alongside the orang asli retail trainees, and be involved in empowering them in a buddy system.

With regards empowering single mothers, we currently collaborate with Women of Will to provide our T-shirts the ladies to whom they give micro-credit loans. They receive RM5-00 for every T-shirt sold by them.
