Creating a Sustainable, Equitable and Enjoyable Future
Heriot-Watt University Malaysia is a global leader in
purpose-led education. The university is committed to develop purpose-driven
leaders who are future-ready. Besides our world class programmes and global
curriculum, our students are required to hone their leadership skills by
joining the EmPOWER programme where they discover their purpose and work on
practical projects to mobilise that purpose into positive impact on the world.
This year, as part of the EmPOWER Programme, our students have initiated a crowdfunding project to raise funds for 12 deserving Charitable Organisations and NGOs, thereby creating an impact and make a real difference to thousands of lives in Malaysia. Our target is to raise RM100, 000 for our EmPOWER Crowdfunding Project 2023.
You are invited to join us to make a difference. #TogetherWeCan make a positive impact on the world.
