Malaysia Collective Impact Initiative (MCII)
Malaysia Collective Impact Intiative (MCII)
Hong Leong Foundation is one of the founding members of the Malaysian Collective Impact Initiative Berhad (MCII). Formed in 2015, MCII is a registered NGO aimed to achieve systematic educational and social change in Malaysia through cross sector partnerships.
As a member of MCII, HLF contributes an annual fee that supports the backbone of the organisation. Collective impact occurs when organisations from different sectors agree to solve a specific social issue through an agreed common agenda, aligning their resources and efforts, and using common measures of success to continuously improve the quality of interventions and support. In this regard, the founding members of MCII are driven by a common purpose:
- To improve educational outcomes, especially in the areas of literacy development and career aspirations from cradle-to-career
- To create an inclusive intervention model that can be replicated across Malaysia
Aligning with the Malaysia Education Blueprint, MCII works alongside the community and relevant stakeholders to identify areas for improvement in student outcomes and maps it against existing member programmes in a coherent framework. Current members include:
Hap Seng Group
Hong Leong Foundation
Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad
In-kind support partners
Thoughts in Gear
MCII works to ensure that core components are developed within the school for increased impact - resulting in coordinated and monitored interventions for sustainable outcomes and has developed an initial model in Klang, with a focus on clusters of schools (a total of 14 at the moment) and the surrounding community.
