Youth Engagement Highlights During the Unity Ride 2017
Unity in Our Eyes



Our co-founders led a team of cyclists covering 500km over 9 legs throughout West & East Malaysia, collecting stories from Malaysians with pit-stop locations at universities and secondary schools, where unity themed forums and workshops were conducted. Our Orang Asli youths also got to share about who they are.

Like-minded corporates and organisations working towards a common vision of a united Malaysia, collaborated with us on this Unity Ride.


A significant and proud moment in front of the Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad clock tower at Dataran Merdeka. Singing the Negaraku as our Jalur Gemilang was raised accompanied by the DBKL band.

Torches symbolise uniting communities and the sports spirit. What an honour to carry the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Sea Games torch.


Young and old. In the true spirit of Unity, start together finish together.



We fought against the communists. Each squadron had a mix of Chinese, Indian, Malay, Sabahan and Sarawakian officers. Who we were very close. After battles in the jungle, we’d travel to the closest kampung and tumpang with the officer from that kampung to recuperate. Their families opened their homes to us regardless of who we are.

– En. Baharin, Former Sergeant Major of PDRM Sg. Petani, Kedah


“Di sini, kita nyaman.” he shared at his warung in Kampar.

We wear different uniforms and work different jobs. But equally we love Malaysia. Thank you for your service to our Nation.

– En. Baharum, Farah’s Father, Rubber Tapper


Visiting Farah and her family opened our eyes to the reality of Orang Asli lives. We learnt about their home life and why they see things the way they do. We want to help this community more.

Rumah Kebajikan Sri Ramakrishna


This home provides shelter and education for underprivileged youths.

I came to the home one month ago. Before I came, I had to find my own food because my parents had no money. After my mother went to work, I tumpang the bus with the other guys to find food in town. I want to be a lawyer when I grow up. I want to be successful so that I can take care of my family.”
– Sadis, student at Rumah Kebajikan Sri Ramakrishna


Sesi Dialog Terbuka di Universiti Malaysia Sabah


“It is very clear that Sabahans embrace and celebrate the value of ‘Únity in Diversity’. We have people from many cultures and heritage living side by side. Despite the different religious beliefs, we celebrate each other’s festitivities with joy and happiness. This is possible because we have a strong sense of trust and respect between Sabahans.”
– Charles Thomas, Kaum Dusun

Unity Ribbon Engagement


The Unity Ribbon campaign calls on Malaysians from all walks of life to wear the Unity Ribbon inspired by the Jalur Gemilang over their hearts, to stand proud as Malaysians and for Unity.

Every year, the campaign carries a different theme, with ‘’Celebrating Unity” in 2018 and “Maka Kami Rakyat Malaysia” in 2019 based on the Rukun Negara which embodies the common values which most Malaysians irrespective of race can embrace.

In 2020, Malaysians are facing rising racial tension and extremist views, coupled with the Covid-19 health pandemic and global economic challenges.

We believe we can emerge from this as Malaysians if we are resolute together, thus this year’s theme “We Will Get Through This Together. #MakaKami”

Orang Asli



We get involved with young Malaysians from underserved communities. Where they lack in opportunity, we help by providing education and life skills training through retail. It builds their confidence!




Our first retail trainees were Miri binti Adek and Armizainizam a/l Bahari from the Orang Asli community. Today, Miri is a teacher while Armizainizam returned to school to study for his SPM under a Projek57 Education scholarship.

We have also been given scholarships by our partner schools and universities.




In addition to Armizainizam A/L Bahari, other recipients of our Projek57 Education Scholarships are Rozalina Binti Baharum and Jorita A/P Rosman. Rozalina, also known as Farah, is currently pursuing her foundation in Business studies whilst Jorita continues to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Business.
