SMALL CHANGES MALAYSIA

About Us

Small Changes was established with the ethos of doing small changes that lead to big differences. The ethos has enabled Small Changes to develop a multitude of social development programs whilst spreading social awareness campaigns on social issues throughout the years.

Today, we aim to establish a solid foundation centralising our youth volunteer community in providing an empowerment platform, hankering education and community development as our focus areas. It is fundamental for the youth, who will be the linchpin of the nation’s progress and leaders of the future, to delve and involve themselves in the social building process and understand their roles in the frame of nation building.

We construct the framework of Small Changes such that we direct our resources in undertaking high impact programs, prioritising ‘them before us’ in delivering our actions. We cordially invite you to embark on this journey of making small yet meaningful and positive changes for a better Malaysia.


2024 Projects

Seeds of Deeds

With English as the main medium of communication, Seeds of Deeds (“SOD”) aims to tackle the issue of education inequality. In 2024, we aspire to continue empowering underserved communities that remain deprived of the much needed opportunities that they deserve. This year, in partnership with Axiata Foundation, we will be hosting two SOD camps namely ‘Girls in Action’ and ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’.

Seeds of Deeds: Girls in Action is a 3-day camp that will be held in Penang benefiting Asrama Bahagia and Form 4 students from two all-girls schools in Penang. This camp is a dynamic space where young girls discover their voices, harness their potential, and ignite their passion for making a difference. Through engaging modules and activities, students embark on a journey of self-discovery, personal development, and women’s empowerment. The modules will not only bolster their knowledge but also enable them to hone skills that will shape them into holistic individuals capable of navigating the demanding millennial world.

Seeds of Deeds: The Pursuit of Happiness is a 3-day camp that will be attended by students from Rumah Raudhatul Al-Faeez (RAF) & Form 4 B40 students in Terengganu. The modules of this empowerment camp are focused on three areas of personal development: Future Pathway, Mental Wellbeing and Team Synergy. These three themes are integrated with our fundamental core, which focuses on English proficiency and digitalization. The modules crafted include exposing them to potential opportunities in tertiary education, such as scholarships and diverse university courses. Our goal is not only to assist them in exploring various possibilities but also to instill a broader understanding of the significance of pursuing tertiary education.


Project Beanstalk

Project Beanstalk is built on the idea that education is a powerful tool that can open doors and create opportunities. The program currently focuses on helping orphans in Malaysia, but it has the potential to benefit many others in the future. The activities and modules are designed to be both engaging and informative, showing the beneficiaries why education is important and equipping them with the skills they need to communicate effectively in English. Project Beanstalk creates a safe and supportive environment where orphans can practice their English without fear of judgment. This can be especially helpful for our beneficiaries who may not have many opportunities to speak English outside of school.  

In 2024, Project Beanstalk: Unfold is designed to empower beneficiaries by nurturing their artistic talents and providing them with avenues for self-expression. Through a series of engaging art and creativity modules, the project aims to unlock the creative potential within each participant.


SC Ngembak Blaja!

‘SC Ngembak Blaja!’ which in Sarawak language translates to "Let's Learn Together," is a unique camp designed to empower underprivileged communities in the region. The program integrates The 5Cs, a framework for developing essential life skills, with IT and digitalization training, equipping participants with the tools they need to thrive in the modern world.

This immersive 3-day, 2-night camp, held amidst the stunning natural beauty of Sarawak, often referred to as the "Land of Hornbills," focuses on the core elements of The 5Cs: Communication, Control, Commitment, Confidence, and Concentration. Through engaging modules and activities, participants will develop these crucial skills, fostering effective communication, self-management, goal setting, and a growth mindset. Additionally, the program incorporates IT and digitalization training, ensuring participants are equipped with the technological literacy necessary to navigate the increasingly digital world. SC Ngembak Blaja! goes beyond traditional learning, offering a holistic approach to empowerment, preparing participants for success in both their personal and professional lives.

Our Beneficiaries

Our 2024 beneficiaries include students from Rumah Raudhatul Al-Faeez, Rumah Sentuhan Budi, Asrama Bahagia and B40 students across Malaysia.
