Since the first launch of The Champions programme by Youth Works Asia a few months ago it was with lots of excitement for me to travel back to visit RLabs in Asia and see how the champions are doing. The trip personally was confirmation that when you give young people the opportunity to do good and create the environment for them to grow that the results will be more than you can ever imagine.
The Champions programme brings young people from all walks of life, different communities together in Sarawak in East Malaysia where they learn about technology, media, entrepreneurship, well-being, music and anything that will equip this dynamic group of Malaysian youth. What is even more impressive is that the empowerment series have grown from strength to strength and “The Champions” have been running with the events on a regular basis. Truly inspirational to see and RLabs are proud to be part of this exciting initiative in Malaysia. We can truly say that this generation of champions will leave legacies not just in their local communities but will have a global impact.
