18 April 2022 – On Friday, April 15 2022, the first out of two groups of volunteers from Progresif Sdn Bhd participated in the annual Social Kitchen Community initiative which was held at Crust & Crumbs Kitchen Serusop.
The Social Kitchen Community enables low-income families, particularly single mothers, to cook and sell home-cooked meals at events or donations throughout Brunei. The initiative is a social venture that seeks to find specific skills for the socioeconomically challenged that can be transformed into entrepreneurship.
Hajah Nurul Haniah Binti Haji Jaafar, Chief Executive Officer of Progresif, along with Progresif staff, assisted in the preparation of 200 packed meals for distribution to low socioeconomic communities. The second group of Progresif volunteers will continue to help the following week, providing a total of 400 prepared meals for distribution in the Ramadan Social Kitchen Community this year.
“This year, SCOT’s Social Kitchen Community initiative is aiming for a #4000mealschallenge to be distributed throughout Ramadan. Progresif has accepted this challenge and is inviting other institutions and cooperation to do the same. Through our CSR, we will continue to provide a helping hand in support of the community endeavours.” said Hajah Nurul Haniah Hj Md Jaafar, Chief Executive Officer of Progresif.
