Malaysian Humanitarian Foundation Collaborates with Teach for Malaysia to Empower Underprivileged Students with Leadership Skills

Award-winning non-profit organisation, Malaysian Humanitarian Foundation (“MHF”) is working closely with Malaysia’s leading educational non-profit organisation, Teach for Malaysia (“TFM”) in identifying students from B40 households to offer scholarships to attend SuperCamp.
For the December edition which ran from 18 to 22 December 2023 at Paradise Valley Broga Resort, Semenyih, Selangor, seven (7) students from several schools within Klang Valley were shortlisted by TFM to attend SuperCamp.

“We work on a system to extend opportunities like this to students from the underserved communities. Not having the resources to attend programmes like this should not hinder you from unlocking your full potential and achieving greatness in the future. We hope that from 2024 onwards, we can extend the scholarships to at least 50 students annually,” Henry Teh Kok Kheng, Executive Director of MHF (郑国庆) says.

Empowering the future leaders of Malaysia

Vassenthen A/L Devendren, 16, was filled with excitement to be selected for SuperCamp. The SMK (L) Methodist Sentul student candidly shares that his self-esteem took a hit during the transition from a Tamil school to a national school after his UPSR, which left him dissatisfied with the result. He also feels less confident due to his larger physical build.
Vassenthen wants to make his mother, Mogana Sunthari proud by doing well at school.

“I was disappointed to receive my UPSR result and decided to make a change. I started following a strict regime where I only allowed minimal time to rest and spend time with my family. Being the eldest in my family also means that I have the big brother role to play,” he says. He also continues to study Tamil subjects to honour his Indian heritage as he aspires to excel in his mother tongue, while improving his proficiency in English and Bahasa Melayu.

His mother, Mogana Sunthari A/P Govindan, 41 is also surprised to see how much time Vassenthen spends in his room studying. “Everyday, after school he retreats to his room to study. Sometimes, he only texts or calls me on the phone when he wants to eat. I can see that he is driven to be successful in the future, so I’ll continue to support him,” she says. “Interestingly, though, he doesn't aspire to become a doctor! He mentioned that the COVID-19 experience has truly scared him!”

Another scholar from SMK Seksyen 27, Shah Alam, Maizatulakma Lisa Aqilah Abdullah, is a big fan of Korean culture, particularly the food and fashion. Despite her passion for entertainment, she strongly believes that her peers should set their priorities right from such a young age.

School Holiday Fun at Megah Rise Mall, Taman Megah

School holiday season is here, I believe many parents are looking for places to take the kids for an active fun time or just to move away from their screens just like me. Hence, I brought my girl to Megah Rise Mall and had an enjoyable day there.
Located at Taman Megah Petaling Jaya, Megah Rise Mall is a community-centric mall with many restaurants and everything you’ll need under one roof. It is strategically located at Taman Mageh, with plenty of affordable basement car parks for shoppers.

Refresh, Reset and Unwind the Edelweiss Way

With the festive season approaching, it is more important than ever to refresh the senses and romanticise the day-to-day with little things and rituals to set the tone for the year ahead.
This is why Edelweiss, the premium wheat beer born in the Alps, is inviting Malaysians to Unwind and reset the Edelweiss way, in preparation for stepping into the new year. And we have come up with three ways that you can reinvigorate the senses for the year ahead, with Edelweiss:

Being intentional and mindful – the best way to head into the new year is by getting clear about what matters to you. That could be as simple as creating a morning routine for yourself, setting boundaries in different areas of your life, or even just romanticising the little things like an after work unwind session to celebrate the day. It is all about adding a dash of something refreshing, the Edelweiss way, that will make the difference!

Self-care via connecting with the body and senses by incorporating movement, mindfulness and aromatherapy into the everyday. From painting to yoga classes, or even buying yourself a candle of your favourite scent for your space, treat yourself to something nice to celebrate yourself and your achievements. And as you do that, be sure to grab an ice-cold Edelweiss to kick back and enjoy the moment.

Connecting with the people you love - whether it's enjoying Edelweiss with its hint of fresh mountain herbs as you unwind and reset for the year with the people you love the most, or simply reaching out to the people you love to plan something you can look forward to.
Brewed with a hint of refreshing mountain herbs, Edelweiss is the perfect accompaniment for you to indulge and unwind as the year comes to an end.
