THE GIFT HER WITH LIFE FUND
Motto: Never decide to do nothing just because you can do a little. Do what you can
The Gift Her With Life Fund is a not-for profit fund that has worked quietly to bring about change among the women in the community and society at large through its various nationwide programmes. Some of these programmes are now in their 12th year.
GIFT HER WITH LIFE FUND is operated by the MMICARE Association (acronym for Miss MalaysiaIndia Care Association), a government registered NGO by women volunteers. The association was set up in Year 2002.
The GIFT HER WITH LIFE FUND was set up after that.
Over the past 10 years , the GIFT HER Fund’s programme has touched the lives of thousands of women and young people nationwide via its various unique youth-engaging programmes.
The Fund carries out a variety of direct-to-you programmes in collaborations with individuals and various groups in the communities. Among them are;
- Personal Enhancement Workshop series in schools, colleges & universities
- Miss MalaysiaIndian Global (MMIGLOBAL) pageant
- Community & Environment Awareness Programme for young women
- Healthcare & Fitness programmes
- Teen Eco Camps
- Back2School programmes
- Cross Culture Experiential Programme
- Small Grants for post graduates
- Festive programmes
Since inception, the GIFT HER fund has awarded thousands of ringgit as small educational aid to deserving undergraduates who participated in the MMIGLOBAL pageant.
Many of these young women who have benefited directly from the MMIGLOBAL programme and have gone on to become women leaders in various fields such as medical sciences, law, information technology, finance, tourism, hospitality and media.
Spurred by the achievements of these young women, and based on feedback from regular on-ground activities, the GIFT HER fund is now extending its reach to include deserving post-graduate students in local universities.
It has come to our knowledge that there is a dire need for small ‘no-obligations’ grants for students in the sciences.
SMALL GRANTS AWARDS
Beginning in 2012, GIFT HER will give away Small Grants annually to deserving students from the schools of sciences in public universities.
This year six recipients have been shortlisted from University Sains Malaysia, University Putra Malaysia and University Kebangsaan Malaysia.
These students will each receive RM2,000 with no obligation attached to the awards.
These awards are direct donations from individuals in our society who have chosen to embrace the GIFT HER motto.
