Since our inception in 2003, Nalanda has been continuously organising and offering Dhamma courses, training programmes and other educational services that benefit the entire community. All our programmes are freely available to the public as Nalanda is a non-profit, service-oriented organisation that aims to provide holistic education for integral human development.
Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ in Johor Bahru had just opened at 8.00 am this morning with an enthusiastic crowd streaming in. An hour after opening, more than 1,000 people have visited the Fair, which features 75 stalls selling a variety of food, beverages, household items, fresh vegetables, flowers and fruits.
Over the last few weeks, Nalanda members and devotees joyfully gathered at NEO Centre Johor Bahru to prepare for the 2016 ‘Family Fun Fair’, which will be held on 11 September. The organising team had its final meeting last Sunday to ensure the smooth running of the event, which is expected to draw a few thousand people.
We joyfully invite you to participate in our only fund-raising event in Johor Bahru this year – the much-loved ‘Family Fun Fair’ which will be held this coming Sunday, 11 September. The ‘Fun Fair’ will feature over 75 stalls offering a wide range of home-cooked food, fresh produce, and household items.
Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ (FFF) will be held for the second time in Johor Bahru on Sunday, 11 September. It is held in aid of our ‘Education & Development Fund’. Proceeds from the event will be channeled to support educational programmes of Nalanda Free School, Dhamma School and Library.
The Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ 2016 was successfully held today in perfect weather. The breezy day brought out sunny smiles on the faces of many stall operators and visitors to the Fair. Supporters were already streaming in even before its official opening at 9.00am; and in just two hours, the number of visitors had surpassed 4,000 people. Stalls were enjoying brisk sales, which kept everyone busy but happy.
At 9.00am, to the recitation of “Vandana” and Five Precepts, the popular and much-awaited ‘Family Fun Fair’ officially opened at Nalanda Centre, Sri Serdang. Nalandians and supporters have been arriving since 5.30am this morning, some even coming directly from distant Ipoh and Malacca!
Nalanda Family Fun Fair aims to raise funds for a new Dhamma learning facility – the K. Sri Dhammananda Centre in Sri Serdang. Once completed, it will provide opportunities for more children and teenagers to attend Dhamma School. We humbly invite you to be part of this important community project, and make a significant contribution to the development of holistic education.
Today and tomorrow, we anticipate literally bus-loads of supporters descending upon Nalanda Centre to take part in Sunday’s ‘Family Fun Fair’ – the one and only fund-raising event organized by Nalanda this year. This afternoon, the first wave of Kelantanese devotees arrived to help out with preparations, to be followed by many more coming in buses and cars. But why travel 450km one way just to take part in a ‘Fun Fair’?
