Our Impact

We want to reimagine an education approach to empower students to be leaders of their own learning, their future and the future of the nation.

Our Theory of Change

Recruit and develop young Malaysians as teachers and leaders through a 2-year Fellowship

We recruit passionate young leaders as Fellows to become agents of change in high-need communities at a grassroots level.

Fellows teach for 2 years as part of their commitment to creating change, and we invest in their personal development through professional training and personalised coaching.

Teach and empower students in low-income communities

We focus our impact on the most under-served students in high-need schools by developing their capabilities, their values, and their voice, to empower them to become young leaders capable of leading change in themselves and in their communities.

Build a movement of education champions to facilitate collective impact

Alumni of the Fellowship go on to work with a variety of education stakeholders to co-create long-term systemic change as teachers, social entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers, and advocates for the mission.

We work collaboratively with students, the Ministry of Education, our partners and supporters, Fellows and Alumni, and members of the public to bring long-term sustainable impact to the lives of children.

Transform the education ecosystem and society

We work together with students and members of the movement to reimagine education for our children and future generations, so one day, all children will be empowered through their education to live the lives they truly love.

We are building a movement of Alumni leaders who are committed to our mission, that work together at every level in the public, private, and social sectors to co-create an ecosystem that is collectively invested in the education of our children.
