Teen girls set up camp at school to learn basic survival skills

Phase 2 of the PINTAR-Maharani School Programme (MSP) continued over the last quarter of 2023, seeing a total of 200 students in Form 3 from SMK Batu Unjur, SMK Gombak Setia, SMK Bandar Rinching, SMK Tengku Ampuan Jemaah, and SMK Tengku Idris Shah meet with facilitators from Rythm Foundation to carry out exciting activities to cultivate a deep appreciation for nature, while equipping participants with essential survival skills, and boost their physical strength.

The programme’s overall mission is to inspire and empower poor, marginalised, and socially excluded girls and young women by providing skills and knowledge to enable them to identify and work towards their full potential to become responsible agents of change in their community. The first phase focused on self-discovery, where the same cohort of students were encouraged to explore their identity and build confidence and self-esteem.

Teenage girls from the B40 community were inspired by this holistic programme that enhances their creativity, knowledge, and confidence – enabling them to reach their full potential and develop fulfilling careers. The camping experience over the weekend at school grounds added to the excitement for the girls, and the enthusiasm radiating from Rythm Foundation’s facilitators were infectious, encouraging the teen girls to give their best in the allocated tasks.

The PINTAR-Maharani School Programme was sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada via the Global Virtual Race for the Kids 2021 – contributing over RM100,000 to the cause.
