Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent and Advocating Responsibility (PINTAR) is an organisation working in partnership with corporations, partner NGOs and the Government to enhance the motivation and success of students from underperforming schools through education, in line with the national aspiration to develop human capital who are adequately prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century
PINTAR Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation, with a vision to inspire the young generation to become responsible citizens through the three key tenets of Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent and Advocating Responsibility (acronym of PINTAR).
PINTAR Foundation was established in 2008 to spearhead the implementation of the PINTAR Programme, a school adoption programme supported by PINTAR members comprising private companies and other foundations, that help supports and improves the education outcome of students from most-in-need schools, who are mostly from low-income families living in rural and urban areas.
Working in partnership with GLCs, private corporations, partner NGOs and the Government, PINTAR Foundation strives to build human capital by reaching out to Malaysian children in underprivileged communities through its PINTAR Programme, a school adoption programme, which seeks to improve the educational outcomes of students from underperforming schools throughout the country.
Since the PINTAR pilot project in late 2006, our 44 PINTAR members and partners have implemented no less than 300 PINTAR activities per year at their respective adopted schools with the involvement of students, teachers, parents and the community. To date, a total of 565 PINTAR schools nationwide with more than 892,000 students and teachers have benefited from the many PINTAR programmes and activities implemented yearly.
