Location: Taman Tugu Nursery
As part of their team building and Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) programme, more than 60 employees from Islamic Banking & Finance Institute of Malaysia (“IBFIM”) spent their Sunday morning exercising and playing various games at the Nursery followed by volunteering their time to assist us in creating a rainforest by planting forest cover along the secondary trails. Forest cover is needed to further balance the ecosystem and stabilise the ground by holding the soil thus preventing erosion as well as absorbing excess water preventing the trails from being muddy.
The session ended with a picnic at the Nursery and an appreciation speech from the Taman Tugu team. The CEO of IBFIM, En. Yusry Yusoff, expressed his overwhelming joy and support towards the project and is grateful for this forest in the city. He committed for his team to conduct their periodic team exercise at Taman Tugu.
We hope that sessions like these will create a sense of ownership and care towards Taman Tugu and other green spaces and act as a platform for people to be exposed to nature and value it. These efforts are for them and we hope that by getting them to spend more time with nature, it will make them guardians of it.
We would like to express our heartiest gratitude to IBFIM for their donation in support of the Taman Tugu Project and conservation of public green spaces.
