YTL Foundation organized our Christmas Bazaar-Lottie’s Talent Village at Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with 54C The YTL Learning Space – a learning space offering fun, creative and engaging after-school programmes to underprivileged students aged 7 to 18 years. The Christmas Bazaar-Lottie’s Talent Village featured social enterprises focused on skills training for underprivileged youths and was opened to the public from 10am till 10pm on 1 to 3 December 2017.
The weekend line-up included fun performances at the opening ceremony by the Dignity for Children Foundation, a fashion show by Recyclothes and a 15-minute play by the KL Performing Arts Centre. Different ones learnt batik painting from The Batik Boutique, an award-winning social enterprise created to disrupt the cycle of poverty in Malaysia, which has trained women from low-income backgrounds to produce arts and fashion items from batik. There were balloon modelling skills from Supa Dupa Circus and beads making from the MySkills Foundation. If you were into gardening, Free Tree Society taught plant propagation, composting and micro-gardening.
A whole host of classes for both kids and adults were organized so everyone could join and learn a new skill. There were workshops on batik painting, balloon modelling, growing your own garden, woodworking, coffee making and more.
