The Award winning GreenXchange Project is a two sided-approach recycling project that benefits low-income earners as well as incorporating the ‘Go Green’ theme. The objective of this project is to educate the low-income earners on entrepreneurship opportunities through effective waste management.
Since 2011, SCOT have successfully organized EIGHT Green Xchange events covering over fifteen different villages across Kampong Ayer; collected more than thirty-eight (38) tonnes of recyclable materials from the villagers.
In November 2016, SCOT GreenXchange has been awarded “Outstanding Project for Youth Association” by His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei at the 11th National Youth Day.
This project focuses on helping out underprivileged families in the form of subsistence backyard farming and on the entrepreneurship angle, SCOT is also providing assistance in terms of baking and cooking equipment for mothers who are keen on developing their entrepreneurial skill through small-scale businesses of selling local delicacies.
To date, we have several families under SCOT’s care whereby we have monitored their progress closely and families of which we aid in terms of agricultural equipment have grown from backyard farming to growing an orchard of crops whereby villagers would come to his orchard to purchase freshly grown vegetables.
SCOT Education was introduced in 2013 with an aim to empower and build self-confidence for the underprivileged youths in Brunei through English Language for a period of 12-weeks and is followed by a 2-weeks programme of teaching English Language to underprivileged children in rural Cambodia.
Through this programme, SCOT aims to contribute towards both the Wawasan 2035 goal of ‘an education strategy that will prepare our youth for employment and achievement in a world that is increasingly competitive and knowledge–‐based ’; and ASEAN Economic Community in line with His Majesty’s encouragement for local Bruneian youth to provide service to ASEAN member states.
The Youth Against Poverty workshop was first introduced in August 2016 which aims to stimulate interest and knowledge concerning the issue of poverty in Brunei. Participants of the workshop will undergo a Learning Journey (Community Visit), an activity that aims to enlighten and allow them to fully understand the living condition and situation for the underprivileged in Brunei.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will then be allowed to flourish, elaborate and pitch their project ideas based on the ideas they came up with during the Focus Group Discussions (FGD) activity during the workshop to an appointed panel of judges.
