PEKAโ€™s logo symbolises the shape of a leaf ๐ŸŒฑ that provides an ultimate inspiration of PEKA ๐ŸŒฑ Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

PEKA ๐ŸŒฑ means “sensitive” in Bahasa Melayu i.e. National language of Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ & it is rightly suitable towards its objectives to achieve โœ…

PEKA ๐ŸŒฑ have been actively in community activities ensuring preservation of rainforests ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in particularly replanting of lost rainforests ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ as itโ€™s really critical because we are losing most of the rainforests ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ fast๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜Œ
