The HumanKIND Project’s goal is to empower Malaysian social enterprises working with marginalised communities, particularly the disabled and differently abled.

Order-in a gesture of kindness, is Kenanga’s first collaboration with Café Includes by DIA; a café operated by individuals with different disabilities.

“Today we launched our HumanKIND project, of which the central philosophy is our shared humanity. In a time of distancing and isolation, it is all the more important to reconnect and amplify the essential qualities that make us human-kindness, compassion and empathy” said Chuah.

We are sponsoring the first 100 customer orders* made to Café Includes, every Friday starting 19 February until the end of the year. These orders may be placed via the GrabFood delivery service, redeemable with the promotional code Humankind. You can place your order here: https://bit.ly/3ivxDHH.

We invite everyone in joining us to support Café Includes, and other social enterprises around us.

Your everyday purchase will make a difference and change their life in the most positive way.

Kenanga has been supporting DIA since it started in 2012.

Stevens Chan, a disabled activist, has experienced first-hand how it feels to slowly lose one of your major senses. His loss of vision due to glaucoma brought Stevens a set of unprecedented challenges to scale on. As years go by, he eventually found his calling; to empower individuals like him and raise public awareness and empathy for the visually impaired. That was when he founded the aforementioned Dialogue in the Dark Malaysia. Rebranded in 2021 as DIA, a social enterprise that aims for an inclusive, empathetic and equal society with no separation between the abled and disabled. Stevens and his wife are still on their mission to help make life better for person with disabilities.

In 2018 Kenanga provided seed money to fund Café Includes, located at the Dialogue In The Dark Experience Centre, The Weld. The café is operated by a team of people with disabilities including those with low vision, physically challenged, hearing-impaired, autistic and others.

“Through our partnership with Dankoff and ASEAN School of Baristas we hope to provide more beneficiaries with the right skills to manage and run a café, all on their own.” said Stevens.

“When Covid-19 hit, we had to close down everything, even the exhibition. Our revenue was severely impacted”.

“After the Movement Control Order was relaxed and we were open for a while, we had to adhere to strict SOPs and couldn’t have many people coming in.” he continued.

Since the exhibition was no longer held, Café Includes temporary relocated from The Weld in Kuala Lumpur to Jalan Gasing in Petaling Jaya.

Stevens said that almost his entire team had to be trained to prepare food, make coffee and tea, while others learnt telemarketing.
