      Location: Orang Asli Village, Chamang, Bentong, Pahang

      On 12th June, SIC has organised an activity with the Orang Asli Community in Chamang Bentong. All employees including the CEO, Dato’ Razlan Razali participated in the activity to reach out to the Orang Asli community and contribute to help the indigenous society. SIC believes that even though the community lives far from the developing cities of Malaysia, they shouldn’t be left behind.

      SIC contributed basic food products and distributed to each family in the community by the SIC CEO, Dato’ Razlan.

      Other than that, SIC employees worked together to build a traditional Orang Asli house made out of bamboo and nipah leaves. Besides lending a helping hand for the community to add more value to their daily lives, the employees also gained a fruitful experience and learning to build something from scratch thus improving the teamwork.

      A wonderful great experience were gained that day which they’ve learnt how to make traditional crafts such as weaving hats, baskets and other beautiful crafts using palm leaves.

      With this experience, SIC hopes that these type of activities would be continued in the near future since it benefits everyone including the company and also the community. Feedbacks from the employees was positive and overwhelming, they say that it was a good opportunity to learn about other societies culture and tradition.

    • Penan Craft
       
      Date :   1st – 2nd October 2016 (F1) & 29th – 30th October 2016 (MotoGP)
      Location  : Sepang International Circuit


      On 1st – 2nd & 29th – 30th October, SIC was sponsored the transportation and accommodation for all professional weaver / Artisan from Ten Ringgit Club Bhd. we are cordially invited Ten Ringgit Club Bhd to Promote / sell their Penan Craft during the International Event (Formula 1 & MotoGP).
      All 28 weavers from Eastwood Valley Golf & Country Club were involved in making a total of 400 baskets / bags & purses for sale at Sepang International Circuit.

      The Ten Ringgit Club Bhd was set up three years ago on 11th August, 2011 to address the educational needs of marginalized children in northern Sarawak. Many children are deprived of education due to extreme poverty and lack of proper documents.  Besides providing them basic literacy and numeracy skills, we have a special aim to improve the standard of English.
       
      Individually, each of us may be unable to fund the efforts required to make a dramatic impact on the quality of life of our underprivileged children.  However we can make a difference if we pool our resources together.  RM10 from many people, instead of thousands from a few- that is the strategy of the Ten Ringgit Club- to improve the lives of these children, RM10 at a time.
       
      With this project, all the professional weaver enjoyed to buying souvenir for their children with the allowance they earned for demonstrating the weaving during the two occasions. They hope SIC will continue to keep them in mind for the future CSR projects.
