THE NASI LEMAK PROJECT
Young, Sincere, Independent
We sell the best Nasi Lemak in Malaysia, cooked by urban poor Nasi Lemak food producers.
When we’re not selling Nasi Lemak and creating urban poor entrepreneurs, we do youth-driven social impact projects.
About The Nasi Lemak Project
The Nasi Lemak Project (TNLP) started in 2012, funded by US Embassy of Kuala Lumpur to eradicate poverty through volunteerism. We started off by streetfeeding activities to the homeless 3 days a week, aiming to foster a continuous relationship with them in order to get the homeless off the streets.
The Nasi Lemak Project’s mission is to eradicate poverty in the most sustainable, cost-effective and impact-maximized way possible. Our core principles are outlined as below:
Projects done must be financially sustainable, impactfully sustainable or both.
Project costing must be lean and transparent
Project impact must be direct and calculable, using SROI (Social Return on Investment) or any impact measurement methodologies.
