Malaysia is a generous nation. Billions of funds go for sustainability efforts and societal development, which calls for a national emphasis on impact. The thought of social impact needs to be embedded in social development work beyond the third sector, for us to do better decisions for effectiveness, a chance of finding what goes wrong and innovate for the better.
We aim to culturalize the act of embedding the thinking about social impact in any efforts for society. Culturalization starts with the youth, as youths are the future of the nation.
Impact Malaysia is an initiative under the purview of the Ministry of Youth & Sports to spur youth-driven social impact through a multi-stakeholder social impact working model, including communities, NGOs, civil society, philanthropic organizations corporations, social innovators and tech.
