What is VOLUME?

VOLUME, short for Volunteer in me, is an organization that wishes to promote the volunteerism culture, in the hopes of creating a better Malaysia.

We plan to achieve it by:

  • Creating a platform that allows for volunteering opportunities to be discovered easily. Within a few clicks, you will be able to find an organization that suits your skill set or passion and immediately contact them.
  • Building a community for individuals who are burdened towards the people of Malaysia. On our Facebook page, you can join many others as we inspire and learn from one another.
  • Holding events to create awareness about the various social issues our country faces, and also about the possibility of volunteering.
We believe that everyone has the ability to make an impact no matter how big or small.

Our Story

We started as two medical students seeking to create positive changes in Malaysia. We both loved volunteering and believed that a positive volunteerism culture can really benefit the country.

It came to our attention that volunteering can be rather troublesome, mainly due to the lack of information on the internet and also the difficulties in contacting voluntary organizations. We found ourselves struggling to find accurate, up-to-date information, and felt disheartened over this situation.

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty".   -Winston Churchill

We wanted to be the solution for this problem. This resulted in us coming up with the idea of VOLUME - a platform that enables people to volunteer in Malaysia effortlessly while fostering the volunteerism culture in our homeland.

Since then, we have received an abundance of support, and we will continue to push towards this dream of ours.

Fellow Malaysians, we are all authors of this story. Do join us in making Malaysia a greater place; to equality, and beyond.
