Event: Women Empowerment Bazaar & NASOM Fundraiser by AVANA

The Women Empowerment Bazaar & NASOM Fundraiser by AVANA was recently held on the 18th February 2017 at ss15 Courtyard Mall in Subang Jaya. NASOM is a society formed in 1987 by a group of parents and professionals with the aim to deliver lifespan services to the community of persons suffering from autism.

This event was aimed to raise awareness for autism in Malaysia by channeling 10% of the sales from all vendors from the Women’s Empowerment to National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM). The proceeds to NASOM will be used in effort to raise more awareness about autism in Malaysia.

Through this event, AVANA also seek to empower women who sell online by equipping them with a simple-to-use platform that automates their day-to-day online selling processes. The initiative also received support from iM4U, who also have projects that cater for youths with special needs and Coffee For Good who works closely with Autism Café Project, a café run by youth with autism that also provides training and employment to secure a brighter future for youth with autism. Additionally, AVANA provided all vendors a free booth during the event, a free online store and four-hours in-house workshop beforehand on “How to sell on Facebook” through a systematic and scalable way.

Visitors began rolling in at 11.00 a.m. Ms. Yien Yee Soh, COO of AVANA launched the event at 11.30am with her welcome speech followed by a speech from the Board Member of NASOM. The event then continued with over 67 local women vendors selling and promoting their products and services.

Free medical checkup services were provided by DEMC. On the other hand, Slimming Sanctuary provided free hand treatment and free balloons. At about 3.00pm, the NASOM Maestros, a choir group from NASOM performed two songs on stage. For the closing, AVANA presented a mock cheque onstage to NASOM’s chairman, Pn. Feilina Feiso, signifying the 10% contribution from the participating vendors.
