Kota Kinabalu: The Inner Wheel Club of Kota Kinabalu (IWCKK) is celebrating its centenary (100 years) with a tree planting initiative aimed at enhancing the greenery and beauty of the city.

Its President, Marie Yee said the environmental project aligns with the International Inner Wheel President’s theme for Environmental Day which is “Brighten Lives for the Future”.

“As part of this initiative, IWCKK will donate RM2,000 to City Hall (DBKK) for the plantation of trees and other greenery throughout the city. 

“It is an honour to have Mayor Dato’ Sri Dr Sabin Samitah receive our contribution on behalf of DBKK. We are thrilled to celebrate our 100th year with such a meaningful project,” she said.

The IWCKK-DBKK partnership dates back to 1961 with the creation of the Inner Wheel Garden situated around the iconic Atkinson Clock Tower. 

The garden was planted by the club’s past members and has since been maintained by DBKK. 

The Inner Wheel Club of Kota Kinabalu, established in 1954, is part of the International Inner Wheel, one of the largest women’s voluntary service organisations in the world. 

Other notable IWCKK achievements are the Ginger Project in Kg Tiga, Tambunan, the rebuilding and refurbishment of Community Learning Centres (CLC) projects in Kg Kibunut and Kg Kipouvu, Penampang.

A Water Project at Kg Piasau, Kota Belud implemented after the earthquake to ensure access to clean water. 

Solar Photovoltaic systems installed at Community Learning Centres in Kg Abingkoi, Tenom, Kg Imusan, Tongod, Kg Batangon Darat, and Kg Lubang Buaya in Paitan to provide sustainable energy solutions.

Also a water irrigation system for the Inner Wheel Garden near the Atkinson Clock Tower to support the garden’s maintenance.
