Project Heart is currently working in collaboration with the Autism Cafe Project Malaysia (ACP) to help raise awareness and empower youths with autism to earn income by teaching them to bead bracelets and other crafts. The ACP was founded by Encik Adli Yahya in 2016 to secure the future of youths with autism.
Project Heart was initiated by Nicol Yong in 2017 with the aim to empower the marginalised and those with special needs to gain greater financial independence.
During the festival, we will be selling snacks from ACP and bracelets beaded by the youths involved with the collaboration. There will also be a live showcase of them making these bracelets, and festival goers will also be given the opportunity to try their hands at beading as well.
