Making a difference through education
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.
RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids, supporting youth

Over the past decade, the RBC Race for the Kids series has grown to include 17 charitable events raising more than $57 million for our local charity partners. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic means most of our physical Races can’t happen so welcome to the first ever RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids. Our ambition is to create the world’s biggest, virtual family fun run in support of over 30 youth charities to help them continue their incredible work at this challenging time.
