Vasanthan Lingan

Coach, MYHackathon

For the past 2 1/2 years, Vasan has been working with rural and under-exposed communities in New York, Mexico and Central America, initiating sustainable community development projects based on the United Nation's SDGs. From February to August, during the global pandemic, stranded in a secluded village in Honduras, Vasan decided he needs to find his way back to his homeland, Malaysia, to contribute to the country's development, mainly in the area of sustainability, which he thinks is crucial at this point in time. 

 

Apart from being a coach and a facilitator, Vasan is currently starting community farms in Hulu Selangor to provide affordable food to the surrounding local communities.
