Empowerment comes in many forms and like we always say, "Youth is no handicap when it comes to helping those in need".
And now, it's time for you to meet our final personality for our "Change The World" series – Zikry Kholil of Incitement, a man who trailblazed the way as the bridge between NGOs and volunteers.
How does Incitement help inspire people to help the underprivileged?
At the end of each session we have in Incitement, there is an appreciation round, where the audience would share which speaker inspired and moved them the most.
This is impactful because they feel like they are a part of something and it’s the perfect moment for us to give them a cause of action by asking them if they would want to volunteer.
And if they are interested, what will happen after?
Then, we will channel to them projects that we have partnered with, so they can get a kick-start.
But Incitement has since evolved into becoming a middle person to connect both the clients (NGOs) as well as people who want to volunteer but don’t know how.
Our SOP (standard operation of procedure) is now channelling our audience to the social projects we partner with and projects that we have under our umbrella.
Plus, we get brands who want to brand themselves as one that does social projects, so we link them up with NGOs who are looking for sponsors and grants. We’re using the same model in all Incitement countries and as of now, we are already in 45 different countries with Malaysia being the biggest.
