Indeed a wonderful initiative!
Ananda Sangamam presents the Vegetarian Food and Fun Fair with a meaningful purpose and a unique blend of culture, vegetarianism, and community engagement awaits you guys. Spearheaded by Pertubuhan Hindhudharma Malaysia, Cawangan Bukit Jalil, this event goes beyond being a mere food fair; it is a platform for fostering diversity and empowering the B40 community of PPR Kampung Muhibbah.
At the core of their mission is a steadfast commitment to providing education and resources to those in need. To date - every Friday, they conduct religious classes for 50 students, offering not just spiritual guidance but also providing them with essential sustenance and educational materials. On Saturdays, they actively engage with the youth through a range of activities designed to bolster their confidence and skills.
Having said that, Sundays just got more productive to equip women with practical training sessions that could boost their income, such as saree pre-pleating and mehendi (henna body art) classes.
One of the most impactful initiatives has been the establishment of an education centre at Devi Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, catering to 50 students from standard 1 to form 5. Apart from that, they offer dedicated tuition classes and organize educational trips, ensuring these students not only excel academically but also gain a holistic learning experience.
