ME.REKA is developed for you by the people at Biji-biji Initiative, a social enterprise championing sustainability all around Malaysia.
We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

|We try to eliminate hazardous waste in our production processes. When it cannot be avoided, proper handling, use and waste management of hazardous chemicals is observed.

|We aim to uphold gender equality commitments for both sexes at all times.
|We aim to ensure that Biji-biji’s direct and indirect supply chain is ethical.
|We aim to support and integrate SMEs and SEs into Biji-biji’s value chain and markets.
|We aim to eliminate discrimination in its all forms.
|We reduce, reuse and recycle materials used and waste generated in the design, prototyping, manufacturing, packaging, delivery and return of products developed.
|We adhere to Open Book Finance principles.|
|We implement and stay on track towards achieving sustainable development.|
ME.REKA supports the open-source concept. We believe in collaborating and sharing our designs with other makers, and we encourage you to do the same. We believe the best ideas are made together; together we expand the possibilities/limits of making. Collaboration on projects of intense personal interest drive the need to share ideas and lessons learned more than external incentives like grades.
Makers share designs, code, and ideas globally but making occurs locally. Makers share their expertise with a worldwide audience. “We” are smarter than “me” is the lesson for educators.
Integration of Disciplines
Science and art are rarely valued equally (with science normally given higher credit). At ME.REKA, we believe that the process of having original ideas that have value comes from mixing different disciplines together. We believe that combining multiple industries and fields of knowledge creates an innovative, collaborative and inclusive space where anything is possible.
“All children are born artists, the problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso
