“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.”

– Kofi Annan



Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.



Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

We initiated a community empowerment programme in 2019 to encourage, support and empower the women in the local communities in Kemaman, Terengganu, to earn a sustainable living through making turtle-batik handicrafts and merchandise from home. This programme provided a platform for local women to build their capacity as tailors and entrepreneurs. The majority of the women did not have any prior sewing skills or experience.

Together, we have designed and developed more than 30 turtle-batik merchandise that are currently being sold in-stores and online to spread turtle conservation awareness.

Through this programme, local women can now purchase necessities for their children, build a financial net with an emergency fund for their families and become financially sustainable. Most importantly, they are able to help their family during these tough times.

What can I say… this is my childhood packed into a neat little drawstring bag. I’ve literally *never* seen batu seremban sold anywhere before. The size, shape, and weight are just right. The beautiful batik-print fabric is a bonus. The 6th (extra) stone – cherry on top!

So beautiful and well made. I got the rainbow one. Delivery is fast and really worth buying to support the turtles.

I got the red colour and I must say, fantastic product! The material feels very good and high quality. Plus, the bag is very spacious. The turtle pattern looks very cute as well! The additional pocket compartment inside is an added bonus. Really enjoyed this purchase!

I am very much a bandana person and didn’t want to miss out on this purchase. I love the bright colour and prints of my orange bandana. Can’t wait to wear it on my next hike.

One of the other merchandise that I have purchased and this drawstring bag is different than the usual ones I have seen. Apart from having a good quality batik on the front, it has side zipped pocket, and the bag is double layered. Very good quality and very nice indeed. The string is not thin like many other common drawstring bags as well, so won’t make a pain on the shoulder which I always looked for on a drawstring bag. Highly recommended if you consider getting a drawstring bag. Unique. Very happy with it.
