MENDAKI'S 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION IN CONJUNCTION WITH RAIKAN ILMU 2022

Raikan Ilmu month is back! As part of MENDAKI's 40th Anniversary Celebration, MENDAKI will organise close to 40 exciting activities, events and programmes in October across 11 M3@Towns.

About Raikan Ilmu
Yayasan MENDAKI ("MENDAKI") launched its 'Raikan Ilmu' (Celebrate Knowledge) campaign in 2016 as an initiative to promote the culture of learning within the Malay/Muslim community. Over the years, the campaign has gained significant mindshare within the community.
In 2019, MENDAKI, together with the support of community partners, dedicated October as the Raikan Ilmu month.
Through Raikan Ilmu, we hope to create a movement within our Malay/Muslim community to embrace lifelong learning as part of our culture. Muslims of all ages participate in learning events and activities organised by MENDAKI and various partner organisations. Click here for the Calendar of Events.
