Empowering local communities

"Baru saya nampak kepentingan social entrepreneurship ni dan banyak bidang yg boleh diceburi. Memulakan SE comes from the heart with the intention to make someone's life better. If you can't help 1,000 people, try change one person's life." Hassanah Hassan, SEHATI participant

The MaGIC team rounded up 20 experienced social entrepreneurs and 223 brave volunteers
