Teen-centric project enters second year


Project Insaniah participants and beneficiaries sharing their experiences online.

Rythm Foundation and non-governmental organisation MyKita’s Project Insaniah is into its second year of assisting teenagers from low-income families.

The project is a platform that helps them in core subjects like English, Bahasa Melayu, Mathematics and Science.

The students also learn about Microsoft Office, coding and graphic design.

Foundation chairman Datin Seri Umayal Eswaran said, “Our philosophy at Rythm, which is an acronym for ‘raise yourself to help mankind’, is about how we can serve humanity to create a better world.

“We hope that Project Insaniah will give these young students a platform for not just intellectual development but also help them develop into good human beings,” she said at the annual meet-up which was held online.

MyKita adviser Kumar Sathambrum said the youths should be given an equitable opportunity to succeed.

“We want to make them believe that success is possible and to create opportunities for them to make positive changes in their lives.”

In a statement, Rhytm Foundation, which is the social impact arm of the QI Group, said the first batch of 25 students, aged 13 to 15, who enrolled in the programme last year had been exposed to livelihood skills training in electrical work and air-conditioner servicing as well as vegetable farming.

To ensure the students have a stable support system at home, parenting workshops, home visits and family gatherings would be held as well, said the statement. — By JAYNE LOO
