Ajinomoto Malaysia "Hope of Life with Culinary Arts" Empowers 26 Youths

28 December 2016, “Hope of Life with Culinary Arts” at Malaysian Institute of Baking (MIB)

FOR Ajinomoto (Malaysia) Bhd, the New Year is to be celebrated as the hope of life.

As a way to wrap up 2016, Ajinomoto Group organised a social and skill development programme called “Hope of Life with Culinary Arts” in collaboration with Hope Worldwide Malaysia, Malaysian Institute of Baking (MIB) and Junior Chamber International (JCI) Kuala Lumpur.

Initiated in 2013, the aim of the programme is to inspire, empower, educate and develop underprivileged communities, mainly youths, and to also help eradicate social issues caused by poverty.

By participating in this programme, underprivileged youths will learn skills that can help them sustain their living in the future.

The programme began in November 2016 and the participants included 26 underprivileged youths aged between 15 and 23 years from families with a monthly income below RM1,000.

These families also currently benefit from Hope Worldwide Malaysia’s Health and Education Programme.





The programme comprises a total of five classes running from November 2016 until March 2017 for underprivileged youths, including one culinary theory class, two hot-cooking classes and two baking classes.

The participants getting cookies ready for baking as representatives from Ajinomoto, Hope Worldwide Malaysia, MIB and JCl Kuala Lumpur look on.

Progressively, two classes have been completed in November, which were on culinary theory and cooking popular Malaysian streetfood.

In December, the baking class was completed with the guidance of MIB’s faculty, where the participants were taught to make snacks based on recipes created by MIB.

In order to assess the learning progress and to give the trained participants an experience on how the culinary skill will benefit them in the pursuit of future success, a 1Charity Selling campaign will be held in March this year.

All the participants will require to prepare one of the recipes they learned in the programme and sell them during the 1Charity Selling event.

Ajinomoto will hold a graduation ceremony to mark the completion of the culinary training and acknowledge the achievement of all graduates after the campaign.

The funds collected during the campaign will be donated to the beneficiaries.

These culinary classes offer great exposure for the beneficiaries to learn and polish their culinary skills.

These new skills will help improve the future of all participating beneficiaries and hopefully continue to enhance their passion to attempt ventures into a small business startup.

DHL GoTeach Volunteers Made a Difference through MY Reading Program

26 November 2016, DHL GoTeach Volunteers at MY Reading Program Graduation Ceremony 2016

In July 2015, that was the first time we met DHL GoTeach Volunteers who introduced to us the Blossom Literacy Program (BLP) Syllabus to our children in MY Reading Program that focused on building the foundation of the children through phonics teaching to developing their skills in Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing.

Since then, the volunteers has been coming constantly to mentor the children, eventually 30 children had completed the 1st series of the BLP. Hence DHL GoTeach Volunteers were invited to the graduation ceremony to specifically encourage these 30 children by presenting them certificates and also gifts.

Through the consistent mentoring by DHL GoTeach volunteers, these children managed to overcome their challenges in reading, and instill self-confidence in them.



DHL GoTeach volunteers' work in MY Reading Program had won them a CSR Award and the volunteers utilized the fundings to purchase folding for these children in the MY Reading Program.

GoTeach volunteers from DHL IT services employees have fulfilled a great Spirit of Volunteerism and their objectives by purchasing the Reading materials and facilitating the teaching materials - engaging with the children and mentoring them to bring out the best potential in these children from the urban poor community. It is sustainable and impactful. As they are not merely giving fish to the children but at the same time teaching the children to fish for themselves.
