PINTAR (an acronym of Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent & Advocating Responsibility) Foundation is a non-profit organization that runs programmes for schools in the underserved communities around Malaysia to help bridge the gap between the rural and urban schools. We strive to give students from these schools the same opportunities that their more privileged counterparts receive.
PINTAR works to complement existing ongoing efforts by the Government of Malaysia to provide equitable access to quality education for all and ensuring schools and students receive adequate aid to attain the highest standards of education.

OUR COLLECTIVE IMPACT
Runners signed up
PINTAR Programme is our 3-year school adoption program where we adopt needy schools in rural and urban poor areas across Malaysia and run various programs (academic and non-academic) with a mission to bridge the gap between them and their more privileged counterparts in the urban areas, through education. There are approximately 4,000 needy schools across Malaysia, and we have only adopted 566 schools since 2008.
A Global, Virtual, Family Fun Run Supporting Youth Charities Around the World
Since 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown to an exciting series of 17 charitable Races taking around the world, supporting kids and youth-focused causes. In total, 290,000+ participants have raised more than C$65 million.
In 2020, the series of in-person Races couldn’t happen so we pivoted to a global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to continue raising much-needed funds for our charity partners. Last year, over 33,000 participants from 120+ countries raised more than C$8.8 million!
Join us and participants from all around the globe to raise awareness and support for our 35 charity partners in 19 countries – and the young people they help during this challenging time.
