Last Saturday, 18th November 2017, the Deputy Prime Minister YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid bin Hamidi officiated the Actyvate at iM4U Sentral in Puchong, Malaysia. I'm extremely grateful to be selected as one of the 12 Actyvators for Actyvate - a game-changer for young Malaysians!
#ActyvateMY gives you the chance to turn your ideas into projects. It is a crowdpledging platform for any youth to start a project or support one.
With this platform, it gives you a step-by-step guide on HOW to start a project. Something I wish I had when I started this journey 7 years ago.
Actyvate helps you with:
1. Framing your idea for the community (ideation)
2. Getting your idea supported by the community (validation)
3. Raising funds from the community (crowdfunding)
4. Start your community project (action)
5. Tell your supporters on your project's progress
Actyvate is all about the community.
What's even better is the institutional backing by key youth organisations such as 1Malaysia For Youth (iM4U), Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC), Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS), Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE), Malaysian Youth Council (MBM), National Service Training Department (JLKN) and Ministry of Finance (MoF).
It doesn't get any realer than this. This is a game-changer.
I've started a project to help upskill unemployed youth with Nation Building School.
What's your idea? Or if you don't have one yet, check the projects on activate.my and support them!
Sign up on Actyvate.my and actyvate your dreams!!!
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MaGIC CEO Ashran Dato' Ghazi and iM4U CEO Rudy Malik for placing your faith in me. I am truly humbled and honoured. I would like to thank all the 11 Actyvators for welcoming us into your fold. Our work has only began, and I'm already excited to actyvate as many young Malaysians as possible!
Me being an Actyvator wouldn't have been possible without the Nation Building School team, especially Marques Jeevan, Pixie Fee, Nafis Nazri, Marcus Lim, Dzulhilmy Mohammad. Let's change the world!
