A social enterprise in Malaysia based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, MyChangkul was founded by Foo Chuen Yong, a cycling enthusiast and nature lover. He started this SE after realizing that there was a need to ensure that hiking and cycling trails are not just sustainable for the people but also for the forest.
A social enterprise that's dedicated to bringing together different generations through their Youth Farming Mentorship program.
