JCI Sabah free market project

25th March, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: People say that nothing in life is free but what if you could actually take anything you like without having to pay a single cent for it?

It may sound too good to be true, but that is what ‘free market’ is all about. As its name suggests, the market, has a concept similar to a regular flea market, except that everything you see there can be yours, for free!

Three NGOs – JCI Kota Kinabalu, JCI Intan and JCI Penampang – jointly organised a free market project at Sekolah Kebangsaan Babagon, Penampang recently following their respective installations.

The JCI wants to be more inclusive and help rural communities in the state. Among items donated in the free market were stationary, vegetables, clothes and food.

The organisers received donation and help from Pandu Puteri and Sabah Youth Council as well as International JCI chapters such as JCI Manila, JCI Angeles City and JCI Greater Zamboanga Sibugay.

And, RM5,000 in kind donation was given out to the more than 500 people in need around the area.

JCI Malaysia national president Nurulhuda Afandi was also present to witness the project and expressed her confidence in JCI Area Sabah creating impactful and meaningful projects that could make a difference in the community.

This is the three chapters’ first of a series of community projects that have been planned. – PR
