Project Summary

Dialogue in the Dark (DiD) needs your help to build our new home.

We started our work in 2012 at Petrosains, moved to Jaya 1 and have spent the last 2 years at Sunway University. As of 1 January 2017, our operations office is temporarily located at Taman Midah, Cheras.

We have been actively seeking for a new venue to house our Experiential Learning Centre and we recently identified a shop lot in PJ11 Bandar Sunway (nearby Sunway University). This venue will suitably accommodate our educational workshops and corporate events. It will also house our unique Cuisine Dining in the Dark experience.

DiD's Experiential Learning Centre has been crucial to the training of visually impaired persons (VIPs). DiD provides a safe and sustainable employment opportunity for the blind and visually impaired Malaysians who would otherwise have limited and less than desirable options when it comes to sourcing for jobs.

Since our inception, we have successfully trained over 100 VIPs. By pitching in to help with the setup of our venue, you will be enabling the lives of other VIPs.

To build our new home, we need RM90,000.00 for rental costs, renovations and utilities.
