Small changes make a big difference


Youth power: Sachvinder is part of a youth-led organisation that raised funds for those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.

SOME youths may be crying of boredom due to the movement control order (MCO) imposed by the government to stop the spread of Covid-19. However, Small Changes Malaysia, a youth-led organisation focusing on empowering youths and helping the underprivileged, is deeply aware that for certain groups of people, boredom is the least of their concerns.

“There are some families around Kuala Lumpur who are living pay cheque to pay cheque. They don’t have enough money to buy basic necessities,” said medical student Sachvinder Singh Gill, 22, who serves as a social media manager at Small Changes.
