Community Work by Our Students

Category : Blogs , home news3 , news , Recent Posts

MySkills has been committed to community work as part of a social contribution as well as a transformative programme. As part of this on-going programme, groups of students from the Port Klang Centre have been making their way to institutions around the vicinity of Port Klang to lend a hand. These include institutions which provide shelter and care to the elderly, specially- abled children and orphanages.

On the 4th of February, 30 students carried out some needed electrical repair work, thus using their technical skills to a good cause at the Sai Annai Ilam at Sentosa, Klang. They also carried engaged with the children in games. Sharing another skill that they have learned and which they happily shared with the children was through painting and colouring.

Almost a week later, on the 10th, 45 students went to the Centre for children with special needs, i.e. Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-kanak Cacat at Pandaram, near Bomba. Besides cheerly and efficiently cleaninf the drains and compound, the students engaged with the children in games. They also communicated with both children and adults in ways they could.

Another group of 41 students were with the elderly at Persatuan Warga Emas in Sentosa, Klang on the same day, i.e. 10th February. Listening to the sad stories of the ‘aunties’, was very touching for the students. It made them emphatise the elderly.

On 17th February, 30 students were back in Sai Annai Illam again. This time, they fixed a fan, did some general washing, cleaning up a small room. And then it was time for a round of football which both groups thoroughly enjoyed.

Engaging with children and the elderly and contributing actively leaves an impact on the students and the residents alike. For the students, they learn to be sensitive to others while fro the residents, they are happy to receive visitors who engage with them. For MySkills, this engagement has been consistent for a number of years.

Transforming Oneself through the PEACE Programme

Category : Blogs , home news3 , news , Recent Posts

MySkills has been engaging with an NGO bringing a programme called P.E.A.C.E. as part of an additional means of transformation, particularly through the management of emotions.  The Performance Empowerment Attributes Programme towards Collective Excellence is a “transformative programme towards self-mastery, to change and re-engineer oneself towards successful life endeavours”. The programme is spread over 1 year beginning with a weekend and with follow up sessions monthly for one cycle. For the current cycle, the PEACE camp was conducted on the 4th and 5th of February. A total of 64 students, from the Port Klang Centre accompanied by a staff Ms. Karisma immersed themselves in the programme.

The students, ranging from 13 years to 15 years, focused on the emotions they faced through a series of games requiring team work, reflective questions and drama. Jiven Raj, 17, shared that one aspect that he found usual was the session of anger management. Arvin, also 17 said he enjoyed the interaction with friends, learning to face and solve problems individually instead of always running to someone else. He explained that “small” problems like someone using foul language could be resolved by choosing to ignore and not react by fighting. He said that one could also report such occurrences to a staff member.

Truancy was a very common habit among many of his friends before setting foot in MySkills, said Kamaraj, 16. The PEACE programme makes participants reflect on such tendencies. He explained about the drama session that the students were asked to prepare. His group chose a futsal session to depict some problems usually encountered and how they resolved the issues without resorting to fighting.

For the 64 students who have started their journey in MySkills and are committed to transformimg themselves, the PEACE programme gives a hand as do the many staff members, volunteers, directors, donors and all supporters.

A Muhibbah Ponggal Celebration

Category : Blogs , home news3 , news , Recent Posts

Sunday 28th January 2018 was a very special day for the family of MySkills. There was an air of excitement as students began the day, some as early as a 3am rise. Students, parents, volunteers, supporters, staff and directors made their way to the Kalumpang  campus on buses, bicycles and cars.  MySkills Foundation Ponggal 2018 was waiting to happen!

As the students, staff and volunteers were getting ready, a group of women from Kalumpang Chinese New Village cycled in. In fact they were among our first guests! For them it was their first experience of a Ponggal celebration.  With the 14 Ponggal “stations” all set with pots, firewood, sugarcane, milk rice, sugar, the event began with Thevaram recital by Mr Sitarasu. The Emcee then explained the significance of Ponggal celebration of gratitude for nature. Livendran explained this Mandarin for the benefit of our Chinese guests who were very impressed.

After the ernest fire-fanning and urging the boiling over of Ponggal rice with shouts of “Ponngalo ponggal” repeatedly which was preceded by the  drawing of kolam( an Indian art form) using flour, it was time for a meal. The vegetarian fare that was served was the products of a labour of love of a team of 10 of our boys led by Mr Naresh our staff, a graphic designer.

Entertainment followed next. MySkills youth broke into dance, an inert talent and which brings a lot of joy. Different groups of male and female students entertained the community with their skilful maneuvers requiring coordination and perfect timing.

Ponggal celebrations come with community games,  uri adittal (pot breaking) being one of them. For those who have not seen nor experienced, it is quite a feat. Blind folded and swirled around a few times, the striker, armed with a long stick has to make his/her way amid shouts, some of which purposely are misleading. So some ‘strikes’ end up beating the air while some are able to make out the deception and successfully strike the pot.

Befitting the occasion, the words that stood out in description of feelings as expressed by all were “enjoy; happy; excited”. Yuvan Raj, a 14 year old just one week in MySkills was happy to be at the celebrations. Menaga, a student was very excited as she had only seen Ponggal celebrations on TV. It was a new experience for her and she supported her friends and encouraged them .

In the words of Mr. Tan and Mr. Chan from Kalumpang Chinese New Village MySkills is a beacon of hope for poor students while also helping to develop the local area.

With the last event, the tug of war, it was time to bid farewell to Kalumpang. The 20 students and the four from Kalumpang who worked hard to prepare the grounds two days before though tired were indeed happy and proud; so too all who made Ponggal 2018 a reality. Ms. Sugunia, a staff aptly shared that she was very happy to work in a place like MySkills as it merged community service and skills training.  With the hard work of all staff and students Ponggal MySkills Foundation 2018 will linger long in the memories of all who came and participated. And for our Chinese friends from Kalumpang New Village, pouring milk into the pot was a thrilling experience. It was truly Mubibbah!

Water for milk

Category : Blogs , home news3 , news , Recent Posts

Thaipusam, another auspicious event, which took place after Ponggal celebrations last January, got our attention too. We planned a campaign to promote Myskills to the public as publicity id needed quite consistently for awareness. But our students had a different plan for their part.

Spiritually charged , these young boys wanted to pay their vows to their favourite deity, Lord Murugan, in the Batu Caves temple. While planning the arrangements among themselves, the boys listed out quite a number of items.
‘Offerings’ for Lord Murugan came up as the budget and project impact validation were discussed. The initial idea of buying milk, pots and tokens for the offering was estimated to be almost RM 2,000. For a moment we had to ‘re-think’ whether it is really worthwhile to shower the deity with milk or consume the milk for breakfast for the next two weeks. Perhaps, Lord Murugan himself would be happy to see milk consumed for physical growth. This paradigm shift could happen by giving the right awareness.To substitute milk, water was chosen as the offering. It would which not cost much.

Our boys agreed to pursue the revised plan and the journey was blessed with a great realisation. We were quite relieved that community money was not used for non-impact areas and that it made an impact in the process of our students’ transformation.

Dear stakeholders (donors, volunteers and supporters), your money, time and energy always are always great assets for Myskills. We take great responsibility in managing these resources as they create a sustainable future for us.

Happy Thaipusam to all !!!

Rolling the Year End with Futsal Tournament

Category : Blogs , home news3 , Recent Posts

Christmas celebration started well with MySkills Futsal Tournament which was held on the 24th of December 2017 recently was an excellent initiative by our students, staffs, parents and also with the volunteers team.

Our Heroes were divided into 8  teams mixed with the staffs and parents representing famous professional clubs. Students who were unable to play, helped the organising team to coordinate the event. They made sure everything runs smoothly throughout the tournament.

One of the parents generously sponsored the medals and trophies for the tournament. We also had supportive volunteers helping us to arrange lunch meals after the tournament.

The boys learned what is great sportsmanship where everyone earns respect and opportunity to play the game ethically. We had  surprising results towards the last rounds of the tournament but it was anticipating excitement for each of them who

tried the best for the game.

It was a great wrap up for and tiring day with valuable take home for all of us. We make small differences throughout the transformation journey and you too can help us to make it better.

Please visit our website (www.myskills.org.my) for more details and sign up as a volunteer or donor today!

MySkills Foundation again successfully pulled off another spellbinding “Miracle on Wheels” show gaining lots of support from the public. In the public domain, this wonderful show has became the talk of the town, as this show has taken place in various spots, like Kedah, Ipoh and Petaling Jaya.

As for yesterday, this captivating show was held at Nice Banquet Hall, Rawang. The main objective of the show is to be an eye opener to the public against, differently abled individuals, as they should be treated as other normal human beings and equal opportunity should be given to them as well. Thus, this “Miracle on Wheels” is a great platform for them to bring off the hidden talents in them.

Apart from the concern on disabled individuals, this show also entails on the interest of MySkills students, who are mostly dropout students, where a new campus building will be built in Kalumpang for them in order for them to learn and transform a prominent environment. Hence, via this show, contributions from the public were appreciated as all the capital goes for the campus.

Our spectators at Rawang was from University Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), SJK(T) Kerling, Saradha Devi Illam, Positive Living Community and differently abled individuals from Independent Living and Training Centre Malaysia. It enhances their way of thinking towards their life. They really appreciated the show and were speechless on how the dancers could be wheel chair bounded and still perform so well.
