Malua BioBank will make the most of the multimillion dollar investment from the Eco Products Fund to rehabilitate 34,000 hectares of previously logged forest. According to David Brand, Sydney–based New Forests’ MD, nothing like this has ever been done for biodiversity. “This project enables private sector companies working in Malaysia or sourcing products from the country to help fund the restoration and protection of a high conservation value rainforest,” he said. To participate in this worthwhile environmental cause for more information on the Malua BioBank go to www. maluabiobank.com. it’s as easy as riding a bike As a community-focused activity fixing bikes is an easy way to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children. Suitable for corporate groups of up to 400, ‘Fixing Bikes’ is a community outreach initiative which is a fun and meaningful program that can also be used as a team-building exercise. During the activity teams of 10 work together in a competitive spirit to build bicycles in around three hours. Once the bikes are complete the next task for the teams is to help the orphans test drive their new rides. This activity is an economical and fun way for corporate groups to give back to a community and can be used as a team-building competition to enhance skills in co-operation and team planning. For more information about this worthwhile activity contact local DMC Pacific World Destination East at firstname.lastname@example.org. 34 miceAsia.net dmc putting cSr Malaysian DMC Pacific World Destination East put one of the CSR programs it offers its clients to the test when its team spent time with children at St Joseph’s Home in Penang recently. The home was founded in 1865 as an orphanage and currently looks after 43 children. The mission statement at the home is all about the holistic development and reintegration of the children into society and works on giving them the skills they need to cope. The Pacific World Destination East staff learnt that KFC was a favourite at the orphanage and they made sure to bring barrels full of chicken to treat the kids for lunch. As well as this, the team came bearing gifts of coloured pencil sets, exercise and story books. While reading stories to the orphans the staff could see the impact their visit had made and seeing the joyful smiles on their faces made the trip worthwhile.
