SARIKEI – Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) will continue its journey to collect more information and insights and spread the spirit of unity to the local community in Sarikei on 25th August 2022 at the Pusat Internet Kampung Baru Seberang Sarikei. The session will be officiated by Mdm Felicia Tan Ya Hua, Sarikei’s Resident.
The workshops were held previously in Limbang, Miri, Bintulu, Mukah, Sibu, Kapit, Kota Samarahan, and Bau over the past few months. Four additional locations, Betong, Sarikei, Sri Aman, and Serian, have been added to the existing locations in order to reach out to more Sarawakians and collect more feedback on how to achieve greater unity in Sarawak.
Government officials, local community leaders, youth association representatives, non-governmental organisation (NGO) members, and members of the general public in Sarikei are encouraged to register online at bit.ly/archbetongsarikei or contact us at 082 332 700 for the upcoming unity lab workshop. Participation is free, and the participants will receive certificates as a token of our appreciation for attending the unity lab workshop.
ARCH (Advancing Racial Cohesion and Harmony) is a project of Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) that aims to understand and evaluate how Sarawakians perceive race relations among various ethnic groups and national integration in Sarawak, as well as frame it from a broader tier of the national level from a local standpoint.
The idea arose when the Ministry of National Unity announced the National Unity Blueprint 2021-2030 to achieve its set objectives in understanding the concept of unity in Malaysia, creating a clear vision and aspirations of unity to be achieved in the next ten years, and outlining strategic shifts and comprehensive targeted initiatives to achieve the desired aspirations of unity. This project aims to highlight and contextualize the blueprint in a Sarawakian setting.
