No child left behind.
Founded in 2022, the MIDP Foundation seeks to provide free and accessible soft skills education for students from underserved communities, such as those from B40 families, orphanages, stateless background, refugee camps, and other welfare centres.
If you are a looking for soft skills programmes for yourself, your students, or children under your care, please get in touch!
MIDP Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded on the passion to improve soft skills literacy and accessibility for students from underserved communities.
Registered pursuant to the Trust (Incorporation) Act 1952, under the purview of the Legal Affairs Division, Prime Minister’s Department Malaysia, MIDP Foundation seeks to fill the gap for soft skills development within the current education system, while addressing the need for soft skills programmes outside of the Klang Valley.
We strongly believe that soft skills education can equip our beneficiaries with the right mindset, attitude and capacity to compete in the job market, access economic opportunities, and eventually break free from the vicious cycle of poverty. We believe that this is achievable, one student at a time, through carefully curated programmes that are free and geographically accessible.
We are interested to work with various stakeholders from the public and private sectors to ensure that the benefits of our programmes reach the intended beneficiaries from various communities across Malaysia.
