Being there for your new born child is not only an important role as a father, it is also an important moment in life to cherish! ❤ Me.reka and Biji-biji stands with the Women's Aid Organisation in championing the rights of fathers to get a minimum of 7 days paternity leave. Currently, working fathers in Malaysia are not legally entitled to any paternity leave. We at the Biji-biji Initiative and Me.reka have been supporting our fathers with a 14 day paternity leave since 2018, and we also go further to allow our newborn parents flexible working hours, and options to work from home, for as long as they require. The Ministry of Human Resources has proposed amending the Employment Act to introduce 3 days of paid paternity leave. However, we know this isn't enough, as fathers play a hugely important role in early child development, supporting the new mother in their journey, and just allowing her to have some rest 🙂 Thus, we urge the Ministry of Human Resources to introduce at least 7 days of paternity leave in the private sector. This is what fathers in the public sector currently enjoy. Please sign and share the petition calling for 7 days of paternity leave! https://www.change.org/p/ministry-of-human-resources-malaysia-introduce-7-days-of-paternity-leave-in-malaysia?recruiter=971477282&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition&utm_term=share_petition&fbclid=IwAR1sHizRjNJFoPTnqFaCMeF-R7gpGze2broqeCwelnBHqRY11pZEssuIl5o

Me.reka brings Deepavali to Publika! If you walk by the Circle Entrance at Publika, you might notice a little flash of colour! Me.reka had the opportunity of creating a Kolam for Publika to display during the Festival of Lights! Kolam is a form of artistic expression, drawn using coloured rice and flour. Its typically laid in front of homes to invite prosperity and wealth. Our interns worked tirelessly and created an extravagant and beautiful design! Have a look at the final piece and do share it on your social medias by tagging us! Take a look below at the process that we went through to create this design! Me.reka wishes all of you a joyous Deepavalli and we hope this Kolam helps bring prosperity within your life!

3 cities, 1 mission! Inspire the youth! Yesterday, we kicked off the Malaysian Indian Youth Accelerator (MIYA) program in Kuala Lumpur, Georgetown and Ipoh! MIYA strives towards enabling the marginalised and disadvantaged Indian communities by providing a relevant entrepreneurial spirited workshop! It was a great first day meeting all these talented and motivated individuals. We talked about the Sustainable Development Goals and how we can find local solutions to such issues. We also talked about the most important 21st century skill, building trust! Who's going to do business with someone they don't trust? Exactly! Building trust starts from the very first impression and largely relies on how you carry yourself. Being presentable and trustable is an important step in having people invest in you! Day two is already underway and will be more towards solving specified problems and writing grant proposals The second phase of the program includes a proposal submission. Keep yourself updated here to see how far these participants go and look out in the near future for some great new Social Enterprises! https://mereka.my/malaysian-indian-youth-accelerator-program/

Me.reka is very fortunate for the opportunity to host a Virtual Reality workshop for the lectures of Kolej Komuniti Selayang. The game development and interior design lectures got to experience virtual reality first hand! We showed them how they could implement such technology into their own classroom and how it could enable them to teach students from all around the world! The workshop also equipped them with 21st century skills to help them better understand what the jobs of the future require! Our aim at Me.reka is to make the learning experience more adaptable and relevant for all Malaysian students and this was a wonderful step towards accomplishing just that!

Meet Winnie! She’s our industrial designer here at @mereka.my. Winnie works closely with the design team and handles the laser engraving and 3D printing facilities! She taught a class today to the lecturers of Kolej Komuniti Selayang. They continued their discussion on adapting Virtual Reality into their classroom! Winnie walked them through the process on making inexpensive cardboard VR sets to help bring the technology to the masses! Be on the lookout for more stories on beautiful people impacting our communities! DO. MAKE. LEARN.

This Deepavali, we bring the light of change! Happy Deepavali to all those celebrating! We hope this festive season brings all the love, excitement and prosperity in your life! Indulge on some delicious food, spend quality time with family and bring colour to your life! Did you know that Deepavali is celebrated through different stories by different religions and traditions. The prime reason why the festival is marked by flamboyant decorations and flashy displays of colours and lights is because it is believed that Deepavali is the day on which Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity, roams the earth and blesses people with wealth and happiness! It is also celebrated in South India as the day which good triumphed over evil, with Lord Krishna killing the demon Narakasura and bringing peace to the lands. Take this time to learn something new. Spark that inner creativity within you and brighten the world! Happy Deepavali!
