"A workshop to ignite the creativity and inventiveness of the disabled communities to enable them in creating a sustainable income. "
CEO of Yayasan Innovasi Malaysia 2014
What was once thrown in the landfillls might have a chance for a 2nd life.
Yayasan Inovasi Malaysia (YIM) and a social enterprise startup, Biji-biji Initiative launched the “Donate Your Idea” program which will see prolific designers waiving their Intellectual Property for the benefit of communities with disabilities in need.
The event hosted a production workshop attended by 20 members of the Generating Opportunity for Learning Disability Foundation (GOLD) that consists of children with learning disabilities, single mothers and members of the Rohingya community. They were given training in production of innovative designs to empower them in attaining a sustainable livelihood.
Biji-biji Initiative and YIM aspire to take this concept to greater lengths, connecting ideas donated by prolific craftsmen, designers or engineers of many different brands to various more communities in need, empowering them with the feat of collaboration and sustainability rather than the depletive donations of funds/materials. Biji-biji Initiative will also connect the products to the right retail channels, enabling the participants to gain access to the right markets.
We hope that this workshop will ignite the creativity and innovativeness of the disabled communities and they will be able to benefit from it in creating sustainable income.
