Project Summary

(Posting on behalf of the youth members)

We are Kuala Lumpur Explorer Scout Unit.

We are a member unit of the Rest of World District, British Scouting Overseas, which is part of the UK Scout Association. Our members are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old, and our leaders are volunteers from our local community.

We recognise that we are amongst the lucky ones, with a roof over our heads and no need to worry about access to food, clothing, medication and other basic necessities. Many are not so lucky, and it's our mission to help them to the best of our ability.

In conjunction with 2nd Kuala Lumpur Scouts (BSO), we are fundraising  to acquire, renovate and operate a food truck with the mission of feeding and providing basic necessities to those most in need across Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, and to cater events with the aim of making our initiative self-sustaining.

Funding Requirement

We have been searching for an appropriate vehicle for some time and have seen a few good options; however the nature of the used vehicle market is that by the time we have raised the funds to acquire the vehicle we desire, it may well be sold already. We've identified that we can acquire a suitable truck for between RM15,000 and RM20,000.

Our intention is to perform as much of the renovation works ourselves as possible, under the guidance of our leaders and with the help of volunteers from the community. We are separately seeking sponsorship in kind for the parts and materials required for the renovation, and have successfully obtained a lead sponsor who will underwrite this project and ensure its completion.

Any funds raised in excess of what is required to purchase the truck will be placed in a special purpose fund for the operation of the truck and any necessary supplies.

In addition to the funds we seek as part of this campaign, if you're able to help with any of the following, we'd love to hear from you separately:

  • Servicing, maintaining or assisting with the renovation of the truck once we've acquired it
  • Provision of parts, tyres or other consumables to keep the truck on the road
  • Sponsorship of petrol/diesel
  • Provision of foodstuffs or other basic necessities for distribution

If we do not reach the entire goal, any funds received will be placed in a special purpose account, reserved for this purpose. We will then continue to fundraise until our goal is met.
