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.

3M IMPACT PROGRAMME

Category : Blogs , home news3 , news

MySkills was privileged to be visited by representatives from the 3M Company recently. 3M, formerly known as the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, is an American multinational conglomerate based in Maplewood, Minnesota. MySkills was one of 4 organisations selected by 3M and Pyxera Global to participate in the 3M Impact Programme. This programme aims at public, private and social organisations to leverage strategic partnerships to tackle complex challenges in Malaysia.
A team of pro bono consultants to Myskills i.e.
Noelle Alexander and Nancy Brandt from USA and Karla Chavez from Mexico arrived at Malaysia to work on a strategic plan for MySkills Youth Campus.
They toured our centres at Port Klang and KL,  visiting our social enterprise, De` Divine Café. The visit also included our Youth Campus at Kalumpang for some learning experiences on plans and outcome.
They were highly charged and excited meeting our students as each shared about their real life experiences. Our students collectively enlightened them about their transformation progress, activities held for them at MySkills and the second chance given  them to be successful individuals.
Both the 3M team and the students were introduced to a new language, Spanish.  This gave them some cross cultural understanding
and communication. Our visitors even had a chance to watch our students work on a dance.
It was a great opportunity of learning for ourselves with 3M’s presence here. We welcome them with an open heart and are glad to journey with them in assisting  Youth initiatives in Myskills.

Velan's car

Velan’s car

Category : Blogs , home news3

To most middle class Malaysians, a car purchase may not be such a significant; one just goes makes a deposit (or in many cases, it is not required), does the necessary paperwork and soon that’s one more statistics of car ownership. Not for our dear Velan. His car purchased was celebrated and there was so much joy; because Velan is no ordinary Malaysian. He is an exception; in many myriad ways. His path from when he was thirteen and helping his mother, to his arrival and progress at MySkills is a great achievement and a celebration. His desire to own a car came when he was 15 and told his mother that. However, he had no money, no job; his mother questioned him about how he was going to get a car.

“I have been poor, I have been crazy and I have been rejected. But mostly I have been alone,” said the boy who entered MySkills 5-years ago and has grown up to be a transformed ‘man’.
Valan completed his level 3 in Electrical and Electronic studies at MySkills. He has started his “career” at MySkills two years ago and now working as a Transformation executive.

So he decided that he will own one when he is 21. His career path started at 17. And lo and behold, he fulfilled his dream. He turns 22 on 17thOctober 2017. So he is 21 years and 4 months.

”I want a car for my family’s convenience” he shared when asked the reasons, adding “I can bring them for trips. In addition, I can use the car for emergencies and transport students when needed. I do not have to depend on others”.

He is a proud owner of a blue Perodua Beza, a colour he likes very much. He wishes to express his gratitude to for the opportunity and confidence given. “Without them I am no one today.”

And he adds, “my next dream is to own a house by 24”.

The students were wowed by his car ownership and are motivated that one can achieve. What more his house dream. Fantastic Velan! What a role model in the right place. Mesti boleh saudara Velan.
Note : Velan Enrolled as a student at MySkills in 2010, and now working in MySkills as Full Time Staff.

Kalumpang Report on 21st December to 26th December 2016

Category : Blogs , home news3

Kalumpang Report on 21st December 2016

  1. The grasses around the neem and fruit trees were trimmed. If the grasses weren’t trimmed properly, it will grow taller and wider. When they are large and robust enough, they may send up flowering stalks, or culms. The grasses are growing; they are competing with one another for available water and nutrients. The end result is that the lawn becomes patchier looking, and broadleaf weeds like dandelions or clovers may start to appear if there is a local seed source. If adequate water is not supplied, the grasses will “brown off” looking dead at the surface.
  1. Durian is the fruit of several tree  belonging to the genus Durio. The name “durian” is derived from the Malay-Indonesian languages word for duri or “spike.” Regarded by many people in Southeast Asia as the “king of fruits”, the durian is distinctive for its large size, strong odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The fruit can grow as large as 30 centimetres long and 15 centimetres, and it typically weighs one to three kilograms. Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale yellow to red, depending on the species. Students audited fruit trees in order to verify whether the fruits have been attacked by wild animals such as wild boar.
  1. The bushes along the drain that connecting the pond to the river were cleared up so that the area looks clean. The fruit trees and neem trees are ready to plant.

Lee’s Participation in Chess Competition @ Cheras

Category : Blogs , home news3

In chess, every move has a purpose. Life obviously cannot be lived with this much unceasing calculation, nor should we want to live it that way, but there are times when we must align our actions with a predetermined strategy, instead of bumbling through it. Chess is believed to have originated in India, sometime before the 7th century, being derived from the Indian game of Chaturanga. The first generally recognized World Chess Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, claimed his title in 1886.

The chess tournament was held at Cheras organised by Mr Collin Madhevan.  Lee Fueh Cheong, a student from MySkills Foundation participated in the chess tournament. The objective of the chess tournament held was to develop analytical skills, pattern recognition, consequential thinking and to improve one’s creative problem solving skills.  Lee won 4th place in overall tournament and received a world ranking seeder after two weeks. Lee learnt that playing chess has taught him about life. It is important to stay calm in order to play chess as being frustrate brings him nowhere. According to Mr Kumaresan, he was very composed during the play. Mr Collin, Malaysian Grand Master chose Lee to train him further for the next chess master.
