A1 Team Malaysia is embarking on one of its most ambitious Outreach initiatives yet later this month, with an exciting project planned for team members and supporters. On top of that it has also taken Malaysian driver, Jazeman Jaafar to the A1GP simulator.
Outreach, the team’s social responsibility program, aims to assist communities in Malaysia which are less privileged than others, aiming to change lives for the better. The beneficiaries of the upcoming project will be the Terengganu Association of the Deaf, with A1 Team Malaysia members aiming to refurbish the charity’s activity centre. It will be a major undertaking for the personnel, as it will entail plenty of rebuilding, painting and decorating to transform the current facilities into an appropriate environment for children to use and enjoy. This will take place in the outskirts of Kuala Terengganu from 24-26 July 2009. A1 Team Malaysia’s Outreach initiative is linking with the Sultan Mizan Royal Foundation for the project. This charitable foundation has similar values and goals to Outreach, aiming to improve the socio-economic status and well people of Terengganu and of Malaysians generally.
Jack Cunningham, Chief Executive, A1 Team Malaysia said of this new project: “We are impressed with the work of the Terengganu Association of the Deaf and felt that this charitable organization would be worthy recipients of a helping hand from some very practical, strong and determined members of our motor racing team. This is probably our most ambitious activity we’ve planned so far and is a major undertaking, as there is so much work needed to revitalize the activity centre, but we’re always focused on winning, so we’ll be making sure we take the checkered flag with this project."
