Social Mission

MyMAGIC SE Basic #619295

Carbon Xchange primary outreach program are developed with rural communities in Sarawak and West Malaysia. After three decades of working in-situ with the rural communities, we have established long lasting working relationship and a deeper appreciation of the local culture and values. Growing bamboo has been the common area of interest for all our stakeholders.

The Power of 10 Initiative

The Power of 10 Initiative is a community program developed by Carbon Xchange (Sarawak) to advocate bamboo farming. Any person interested in the  program can apply for one bamboo seedling for FREE. This will allow him/her to start their journey with planting bamboo for restoration of ecosystem within their community. After 1 year, when the bamboo starts to develop culms, the farmer can start to propagate and donate 10 new bamboo planting material back into the initiative to bless another person within their community.  

Bamboo is a versatile crop with multi-uses. It has vast potentials in rural economic transformation and we endeavor to expand our bamboo nursery and distribution to advocate more Malaysians to grow it.

Earthworm Advocacy

In the microscopic world hidden below our feet are invertebrates (earthworms) which play a key role in soil health.

Our earthworm advocacy starts with creating a central database for our farmers to catalog their discovery of earthworm in their farm.The information collected are:

  • Farm Address. GPS Location.
  • GPS location of the discovery area.
  • The type of earthworms, Burrowing or Composting Worms
  • Date and Time of the discovery.
  • Pictures of the earthworms and the surrounding soil condition.
  • Estimated population recorded.
  • Additional Observation Note.

In order for earthworm population to grow, we must provide the condition for them to survive. Earthworms need food, which are organic matter to eat and survive. Only then, will their population start to grow and they will commence to return to reconstruct and rebuild the soil structures.We want to collect practical applied knowledge which we can use to contribute to soil biodiversity research.

We start with developing a check list for the inputs, Starting with moderate organic inputs to determine the re-activation of the soil systems.
