A study showed that almost 7,000 students were dropping out from school annually. Some of the causes identified include dysfunctional families, low self-esteem and peer pressure. MySkills Foundation set up the Primus Institute of Technology in 2011 to address this issue. We speak to foundation director S. Pasupathi about Primus and why he chose to model it after colleges in the U.S. that lifts the African American community out of poverty.

For any student who does well or even moderately well in their studies, the light at the end of the tunnel is bright. Opportunities to study further are available and scholarships await those who come out tops. The same can’t be said for underachievers or student dropouts who are in the state they are in because of unfortunate issues such as poverty and neglected upbringing. What happens to them? What is being dome for them?
Trying to take on that responsibility is MySkills Foundation. After discovering that an alarming 10,000 students were dropping out of school before SPM every year, the foundation was set up to help the youth community, by taking care of the needs of dropout students and students who obtain below average grades and giving them a new lease of life through vocational education and training.
