“The illiterate of the future are not those who cannot read or write, but rather, are those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
Bestnya SUCCEZ! is a personal development programme designed for underprivileged school going children. Personal development is an important skill to these little ones. It allows them to understand themselves better and when they are aware of their strengths and weaknesses, it proactively prepares them for the future.

In Malaysia, UNICEF has reported that more than 72,000 children under the age of 15 still live in difficult conditions and many of them still are without the means of fulfilling their own basic needs.
Although many of these unprivileged children attend school but generally they score poorly in examinations, receive poor positions and are at high risk of dropping out from school.
These children also suffer from:
– Low self esteem,
– Passive in mannerism,
– Poor interpersonal skills,
– Unable to express what’s in their mind,
– Lack in exposure and no career path,
– Ineffective study skills,
– Poor image and appearance,
– Lack in leadership qualities,
– Poor eating habits,
– Lack in coping skills.
These problems can be addressed thru a personal development initiative.
We wish to coordinate and organise a 1-day customised personal development programme (Bestnya SUCCEZ!) for the kids of Stepping Stones Living Centre. The programme includes areas such as studying skills, confidence building, career building, grooming and appearance, leadership, physical and mental health.
This programme is designed for 46 children, ages 7-17, from Stepping Stones Living Centre, Taman Seputeh, Kuala Lumpur. The children come from challenged and difficult backgrounds and require assistance.
The children in this programme will learn the followoing knowledge/skills:
– Studying skills to improve memory and retention
– Building confidence to improve personal self esteem
– Begin their personal journey in career planning
– Grooming and appearance to improve self confidence
– Learn about leadership qualities
– Knowing the importance of being physically and mentally healthy
The supporters of this programme come from KL SIKHS Community Service (fb).
