Danajamin100 Programme to Enrich the Future Leaders of Malaysia




Kuala Lumpur, 8 May 2017 – Danajamin Nasional Berhad (Danajamin), Malaysia’s first Financial Guarantee Insurer, held a graduation ceremony today at Aloft Hotel, Kuala Lumpur to celebrate Batch 2 students of the Danajamin100 leadership programme.

Danajamin100, a unique leadership enrichment programme launched in 2014 is Danajamin’s flagship Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in collaboration with PINTAR Foundation. The programme aims to develop and maximize students’ leadership abilities and potential through a variety of well-designed activities and engagements over a period of three years.

According to Dato’ Mohammed Hussein, Chairman of Danajamin Nasional Berhad, “The Danajamin100 Leadership Programme is testament to our firm and long term commitment to develop future leaders, which is critical to ensure the sustainability of our nation’s development, particularly our journey to developed country status.”

For Batch 2 of Danajamin100, 30 students from five PINTAR schools in Perak, Pulau Pinang and Kedah participated in a 3-year distinctive enrichment syllabus towards developing and amplifying their competencies as a leader. The students were selected based on academic results, co-curricular performance and individual traits such as passion, clarity of thought, care and responsibility. Danajamin continues to collaborate with PINTAR Foundation for assistance in identifying potential students and monitoring their performance thereafter.

“We are happy to have Danajamin Nasional Berhad, who has chosen our PINTAR Programme as its preferred CSR platform and used the PINTAR Consultancy Services to manage and oversee the Danajamin100 programme and we hope that more companies would follow its footsteps. Through programmes such as Danajamin100, we are able to discover talented youths amongst the PINTAR secondary students such as those in the Danajamin100 Batch 2, to be groomed and nurtured into exceptional individuals and effective leaders,” said PINTAR Foundation Chairman, Tan Sri Dato Seri Utama Arshad Ayub.

During the graduation ceremony, all students were presented with certificates of achievement and a contribution of RM1500 in the form of SSPN-i account. The ceremony was also attended by families of the graduates, representatives from the schools and representatives from Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri (JPN). Meanwhile, Muhammad Hakimie Izzat Bin Rosle from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Chenderiang, Perak was selected as the recipient of Anugerah Tokoh Danajamin100 – a special award in recognition of his outstanding participation and positive values created among his peers.

When asked on his views of Danajamin100’s achievements thus far, En. Mohamed Nazri Omar, Chief Executive Officer of Danajamin said, “The aim of this programme has always been to be able to reach out and provide avenues for the students to discover their hidden potential and ultimately, produce well-rounded leaders who are able to improve the social and economic well-being of our country. Having seen 2 batches successfully graduating from the programme and seeing their development, from being shy and unsure of themselves to the confident young leaders they are today shows how impactful Danajamin100 is in enriching the students’ skills and personalities.”

The third batch of Danajamin100 comprising of 30 selected students from schools in Kelantan commenced their journey in October last year and scheduled to undergo the second camp in May.
