KL’s café scene is growing rapidly. Now, there’s new competition – and it comes in the form of kids. Teenagers aged 17 to 20 are the ones running Project B, a café and social enterprise which opened this week in Sentul.
Project B is a collaboration between the Dignity For Children Foundation, The BIG Group and the Berjaya Cares Foundation. Set up to benefit young people from underprivileged backgrounds, Project B provides culinary training and real life work experience. The young people run the café under supervision from The BIG Group, while the fully equipped kitchen and café premises is provided by Berjaya.
Over time, Project B aims to train children with skills that will equip them for the food and beverage industry, while also offering a creative outlet and appreciation for culinary arts. The revenue from the food sold goes back into sustaining the programme.
Currently, the menu is focused on fried chicken: Signature Crunch, Sweet and Sticky Korean Fried and Ayam Goreng Berempah, served up with various side dishes. Try the food for yourself: the café is now open from Monday to Sunday, 11am – 10pm daily.
You can also find out more about the café’s neighbourhood of Sentul, thanks to a new online magazine, launched in conjunction with Project B: www.projectsentul.com features stories about Sentul’s community, heritage and culture. Some of the artwork featured on the website will be on sale, with proceeds going to the Dignity for Children Foundation, which is based in Sentul.
