Since 2015, Nalanda Youth Centre has been bringing together young Buddhists across Klang Valley under the ‘Youth Canopy’ at the annual Nalanda Family Fun Fair. Over 100 youths joyfully participated at the Fun Fair on Sunday 28 July, including members from Buddhist Societies of International Medical University (IMU), Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) Sungai Long, University of Nottingham Malaysia, and Sunway University.
This year, they are more innovative than ever before, with three initiatives for the benefit of the community and environment. The Care Bag counter enabled shoppers to give to those less fortunate, whilst the Health Screening section saw many fair-goers registering to check basic health indicators. Youths ramped up their ‘Go Green’ initiative through sorting and cleaning recyclable plastics and also heightening awareness on reducing single-use plastics.
We congratulate the youths for their laudable effort in supporting Nalanda’s educational mission, whilst providing a platform for the like-minded to network and foster fellowship for future collaborations. Well done!
