It’s time now to give back to the community.

The Deputy of Vice Chancellor Office (Research & Innovation), UTM KL and MJIIT are currently working side-by-side for a USR project named “Program Pembangunan Modal Insan Melalui Transformasi Ekonomi dan Pendidikan ke Arah Kecemerlangan Komuniti Orang Asli”. This main project is divided into four sub-projects which are :

  4. Pengaplikasian Sistem Komersial Pengumpulan dan Pemasaran Berpusat Produk Pertanian dan Kraftangan Komuniti Orang Asli – Assoc. Prof. Dr. Akbariah Binti Mohd Mahdzir.

We will be sharing our knowledge and expertise with the Orang Asli community in Pos Betau, Pahang. We are so lucky to be awarded the UTM KTP-Research Innovation Grant 2021 (RM20,000) for this project, funded by Centre of Community and Industry Network (CCIN), UTM.

Let’s Learn Bahasa Isyarat Malaysia (BIM)!

Hello peeps!

On the 20th March 2021, I have joined the Bahasa Isyarat Malaysia (sign language) online class with our MJIIT community. This program was organised by the MSDeaf (Persatuan Sukan Orang Pekak Malaysia). It was such a great experience as I have never learn the sign language before.

There will be 5 sessions that will be held every Saturdays at 10.00 am – 11.30 am. Our teacher’s name is Teacher Cyril. The first lesson was to get to know the alphabet using sign language.

We had so much fun learning and we are looking forward for our next class on the 27th March.

Thanks heaps MJIIT for sponsoring us and see you all this Saturday!
