Chairman, Board of Trustees
PINTAR Foundation
Her nervousness and excitement triple as the lights go dark, and the crowd quietens. The
music begins and they take their places onstage. Her mind runs through the lines that she
and her classmates have been rehearsing for the past few months. She knows them like the
back of her hand by now. She makes a quick glance to her classmate in the wings of the
stage, who gives the signal to “wait” as he sets up the music for the opening scene.
In the front row, she sees her teacher, excited that they have come this far, and her parents
are in the row behind, their pride and joy evident on their faces. She reflects just for a
moment on how much has changed in the last few months. Before she joined the Action
Song Competition for PINTAR Schools, she had no idea how much it would change her
outlook on the English language, singing and on life as well. She sees her classmate giving
her the cue to begin and thinks to herself “Lights, camera, action!”
As we recall 2014, we are reminded that the true measure of our achievements is the many lives
we have touched and the positive outcomes delivered for the many beneficiaries of the PINTAR
Programme, who are none other than schoolchildren in under-performing schools across the country.
The introduction above is just one of countless new experiences that PINTAR students can attest to
while their school participates in the Programme. PINTAR is the result of a unique partnership between
private and public sector that strives to create equity in education across the country.
so that no Malaysian child is left behind as the country marches on towards socio-economic
prosperity and development.
PINTAR, which stands for Promoting Intelligence, Nurturing Talent and Advocating Responsibility, was
conceived in line with the spirit of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model to reach out to needy and
under-performing schools across the nation.
When PINTAR Foundation began in 2009, we had a total of 168 adopted schools by 25 PINTAR
members. By end 2014, we expanded to 385 schools adopted by a total of 39 members. In less than a
decade, PINTAR has touched the lives of more than 660,000 students across the country.
Since our inception in 2008, we have worked together with our corporate partners to provide
targeted programme interventions to improve educational outcomes of under-performing schools,
In 2014, four new corporates joined as PINTAR Foundation members. We welcomed Deleum Berhad,
Yayasan Vijayaratnam, Lembaga Tabung Haji and UMW Oil and Gas into the PINTAR family.

PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
The past six years have been a challenging but very rewarding journey. We are beginning to see
the fruits of our efforts and this has inspired us to strive even harder in transforming the lives of
schoolchildren across the country.
The PINTAR model has proven itself successful due to several factors. Ours is a practical, sustainable
and effective CSR platform for Corporates to come forward in addressing the challenges of a
developing nation.
We assist our member companies to identify and adopt needy and under-performing schools, help
assess their needs and thereafter, the companies play a direct role in enhancing the former’s academic
and non-academic achievements. This approach allows for better ownership, flexibility, guidance and
support and ultimately enables both school and corporate to achieve their objectives.
Companies are given guidance but are allowed autonomy to plan and
execute programmes for their adopted schools. In fact, PINTAR members
and partners are encouraged to bring their industry knowledge to schools –
enabling students to explore new fields of interest which cannot be taught
in the confines of a classroom.
Our mandatory 3-year adoption period, together with PINTAR’s four core modules which provide
guidance for the programme implementation, help to ensure sustainability. This is one of the key
success factors of PINTAR; we adopt a long-term perspective towards the adopted schools. Even after
the schools have completed their 3-year adoption period, they continue to receive opportunities to
participate in PINTAR national programmes and remain in our pipeline for other support.
Our efforts are also consistent with plans established by the Ministry of Education. Importantly, PINTAR
is a suitable platform for Corporates to easily participate in rather than attempt to develop their own
programme from the ground-up.
While our corporate members run their own programmes in their adopted schools, the Foundation has
introduced various PINTAR National Programmes. These are developed, implemented and funded by
the Foundation.
We believe that it is important for our national programmes to capture the imagination of students in
order to inspire and motivate them to derive maximum benefits from the activities organised. Hence
much thought, research and development goes into crafting programmes which to date have been
well received.
In 2014, we had three national programmes – the PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU), PINTAR Go
Green programme and the Leadership Programme For PINTAR School Leaders (LPPSL).
Our PMLUs are educational buses that visit PINTAR schools nationwide. They are equipped with a
wide range of interactive props and exhibits which students can see, touch and feel. The 'Nurturing
Talent' theme continued from 2013, where students are exposed to the arts and sciences, a wide
range of career choices and more.
The opportunity to get up close through experiential learning has a profound effect on their young
minds. Their enthusiasm grow as they experience flight simulation, play musical instruments, conduct
simple scientific experiments or get exposed to audio engineering, photography, culinary, performing
arts, sports and so on. For many, this is the first time they have even seen a flight simulator, making
that illusive dream to become a pilot one day that much more reachable.
It is this awakening to new possibilities, the discovery that they can have ambitions and go on to
achieve them that becomes truly an eye-opener for children who previously never envisioned such
things possible.
In 2014, our PMLUs visited 231 schools and 10 orphanages, reaching out to a total of 62,513
students; 1,854 teachers and 768 children and residents of orphanages.

Our PINTAR Go Green programme was targeted to develop awareness and a sense of responsibility
among our students towards the environment; and to inculcate lifestyle changes through a training
workshop for teachers and a series of workshops for students. In 2014, 21 schools and 849 students
participated in this programme.
Programmes were also held to assist school leaders such as teachers and headmasters, in line with
PINTAR’s core module on 'Capability and Capacity Building'. The Leadership Programme for PINTAR
School Leaders (LPPSL) was first introduced in September 2011. The programme provides awareness
and understanding of key critical factors that assist school leaders in spearheading effectiveness and
excellence in their schools. In 2014, the programme reached out to 27 school leaders from 16 schools.

CHAIRMAN’S STATEMENT
The English Literacy Programme, a teacher development programme sponsored by the UEM Group,
now in its 3rd year, continued in 2014 and ended in March 2015. Besides teacher development
through face-to-face training and mentoring by British Council trainers, we also conducted activities
involving parents through the Learn English Family (LEF) programme. One of the activities under
LEF is the Reading Circle, which involves parents reading to their children and actively directing the
storytelling session.
The collective efforts by PINTAR members and the Foundation have culminated in encouraging
improvements in student performance. In 2014, our school achieved an average passing rate of 64.5%
for the UPSR examinations, slightly higher compared to results measured in 2013.
2014 was the first year where the PMR examinations were replaced with the new PT3. The average
passing rate for PINTAR secondary schools was 31%. But since this was the first time the examinations
were conducted, this has been established as the baseline for comparison in the years to come.
We are happy to report that students’ attendance stood at 91%, marginally higher than the national
baseline (2013) of 90%. In literacy levels, a comparison of the LINUS (Literacy and Numeracy
Screening) rates for Bahasa Melayu, English and Mathematics among PINTAR students showed
improvements from 2013 to 2014 for the same cohort of students. The increase was most notable for
the English language subject, with an increase of five percentage points.
We also collaborated with several other organisations to extend our scope of assistance as well as
provide access for our PINTAR students.
In 2014, PINTAR collaborated with Yayasan Hasanah to make available scholarship opportunities for
outstanding PINTAR students who had completed their UPSR. Three students were selected and given
scholarships to pursue secondary education at Kolej Yayasan Saad in Melaka.
At the same time, a leadership programme sponsored by Danajamin Nasional Berhad enabled our
secondary PINTAR students to participate in a 3-year Leadership programme that will take them
from Form 4 to pre-University. The first batch which kicked-off in 2014 consisted of 30 students
from 5 schools.
Besides academic performance, the Foundation was also concerned about the welfare of PINTAR
students. In 2014, eighteen PINTAR schools were affected by the massive floods which hit the
4
PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
East Coast and other parts of Malaysia at the end of the year. Our team worked tirelessly towards
ensuring that affected students received assistance so they may return to school when the new
term began.
We identified 10 schools that were already being assisted by our members. The remaining eight
Alumni schools were directly assisted by PINTAR, made possible through funds provided by Khazanah
Nasional Berhad.
A total of RM233,000 was spent on school kits for a total of 2,176 students. Each school kit consisted
of two school uniforms, a pair of school shoes, a school bag, stationery and exercise books. The school
kits were distributed to all eight schools within three days, with assistance from the UEM Group, who
provided logistical support.
Looking Ahead
As we continue to journey on, as we empower the young; inspiring and motivating them, we are
not rewriting the future of individuals but perhaps the future of Malaysia. PINTAR’s success story is
Malaysia’s success story.
If Malaysia is to succeed in becoming a high-income and developed nation, then it must be able to
harness the fullest potential of its human capital, particularly the future generation.
Our children are Malaysia’s human capital tomorrow. This simple equation means that by ensuring that
all children in the country receive equal access to quality education that enhances their experience and
knowledge, we are ensuring that the country will continue to possess quality human capital that is
capable of bringing Malaysia forward to be on par with other developed countries.
This is what PINTAR aspires to achieve. Above and beyond academic
achievements, we seek to develop future generations that are as creative as
they are knowledgeable, with a high sense of social responsibility and moral
integrity through holistic education.
We are reminded that the future is not cast in stone; rather it is moulded over time and if we make
committed and sincere attempts today to change the horizon, then tomorrow will certainly usher
better days.
From our experience, all schoolchildren are equally capable and bright, but some may lack exposure,
access and infrastructure. Given the opportunity, they will rise above the challenges and succeed.
We have come far, but there is more work to be done.
The Foundation will continue to assist companies in the school adoption process as well as add value
to what they do through our national programmes. In addition, as we strive towards achieving our
corporate objective to become the 'Centre of Excellence for school adoption', we will consider new
and innovative means to assist members deliver more effective programmes at schools, as well as
monitor and evaluate the outcomes.
We will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Education to ensure that we remain relevant and
support the transformation initiatives of the new Education Blueprint 2013 – 2025.
We continue to work hard at attracting more corporates to join the PINTAR Programme. I would
like to urge all corporations that desire to engage with their communities as part of their Corporate
Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda, to emulate the commitment of PINTAR’s existing members and
partners. We ask you to consider joining the PINTAR Programme or to sponsor our PINTAR National
Programmes. It is only through the collective effort of all parties that we will be able to achieve the goal
of developing world-class human capital to meet our country’s economic needs.
Acknowledgements
On behalf of the Foundation, I wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the Putrajaya Committee on
GLC High Performance (PCG), Khazanah Nasional Berhad, the Ministries of Education and Finance,
Malaysia and all schools involved especially the school heads, teachers, and students for placing their
confidence in the Foundation and giving us the opportunity to come into their lives.
I also convey my sincerest gratitude to our member and partner corporations for walking with us on
this wonderful journey. Their continued efforts and contributions are an inspiration to all and we look
forward to your support in the years ahead. I wish to also extend the Foundation’s appreciation to our
programme sponsors for providing the opportunities to our PINTAR students and to our programme
partners for their assistance in the implementation of our national programmes.
Last but not least, I express my deepest appreciation to the management and staff of the PINTAR
Foundation and our Board of Trustees for their dedication, passion and professionalism upon which
our success is built today.
Once again, I wish to say thank you to all and on behalf of the Board, present to you PINTAR
Foundation’s Annual Report for 2014.

PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS
The UPSR results for PINTAR schools improved slightly in 2014 compared to 2013, with an increase of 0.5%.
The year 2014, however, marked a change in measuring and analysing students' outcomes for both the lower and
upper secondary schools in Malaysia.
In 2014, the PT3 examinations effectively replaced PMR as the country moves towards assessment based evaluation.
A passing rate of 31% was registered for PINTAR schools for the examinations. As this is the first time that the PT3
has come into effect, there has been acknowledgement of challenges in the implementation of the PT3.
The SPM results for PINTAR schools saw a marked decline compared to previous years due to the change in
examination formats, as well as a need for students to answer more critically. However, the decline is also noted
at the National level.
It should be noted, however, that whilst the PINTAR Programme is an intervention programme, it is difficult to show
direct correlation between intervention and performance as there are other factors and variables that may have
contributed to the improvement or decline in passing rates.
In addition, some of the programmes implemented under PINTAR have been non-academic in nature, as these are
aimed at providing holistic education to students. This has made it challenging for us to measure them quantitatively.

OPERATIONS REVIEW
The PINTAR Programme has come a long way since its pilot programme in December
2006 as has PINTAR Foundation that was established in August 2008. In all these
years, PINTAR has remained dedicated to its goal of providing targeted programme
interventions to improve the educational outcomes of under-performing schools in
Malaysia. By working together with multiple stakeholders from both the public and
private sector, especially the Foundation’s members and partners, the Foundation has
made modest strides in its school adoption programme for the year 2014. It continued
to engage with potential corporate companies with the objective to spur them to adopt
needy schools and to give back to the community. At the same time, the Foundation
continued to spearhead innovative programmes targeted to inspire a values driven
generation that is ready to take on a responsible position in the future of the nation.

Financial Performance
In 2014, the Foundation continued to make a concerted effort to conserve and consolidate its spending
to ensure greater sustainability of its funding. The total expenditure for the year was RM3,940,886
showing a 22% decrease in spending compared to 2013. The reduced spending has not affected the
daily operations of the Foundation, and all National Programmes planned for the year ran smoothly.

About 53.4% of the Foundation’s total expenditure was spent on running National Programmes
for PINTAR schools. This included the operations of the PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU), the
implementation of the PINTAR Go Green School Programme and the Leadership Programme for PINTAR
School Leaders, which amounted to a total of RM2,104,464.
A further 46.6% amounting to RM1,836,422 was channelled to HR, marketing, communication,
stakeholder engagement and administrative costs. In 2014, the operating costs of the Foundation
was largely funded by the Khazanah grant obtained in the same year and partly by the remains of the
Government fund obtained in 2009.
At the same time, the Foundation also obtained additional funds from its consultancy service,
fundraising activities, sponsorship as well as interest income.
Painting Better Futures for All
The year 2014 saw the addition of four ordinary members and one reactivated partner. The new
members, Lembaga Tabung Haji and Vijayaratnam Foundation, joined the Foundation in May, while
18
PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
UMW Oil and Gas and Deleum Berhad, became members in Aug. Media Prima was reactivated as a
partner in November and the Foundation finished the year with a total of 39 members and partners,
and 29 new schools, bringing the total number of PINTAR schools to 385.
Our members and partners funded a total of RM6,629,088 in 2014 for programmes at their schools,
which is a 13% increase compared to 2013. The average amount invested by PINTAR members
per school also increased to RM36,780 per school. PINTAR members have also contributed to the
programme in terms of manpower. Throughout 2014, at least 27 volunteers from the members’
organisations worked on the ground for a total of 161 hours to ensure the smooth running of the
programmes at their adopted schools.
The total number of activities by PINTAR members has also increased in 2014, with 587 activities
covering all four Core Modules, but with a stronger focus on Core Module 1 (Motivation and Team
Building) and Core Module 2 (Educational Support Programme).
With the cohesive collaboration and dedication from multiple stakeholders, including members,
partners, schools’ management teams, teachers, the Ministry of Education, as well as the state
and district education departments, the students in PINTAR schools have ultimately benefitted with
encouraging results reflected in public examinations and LINUS tests. The UPSR passing rate for
PINTAR students for instance, increased by 0.5% from the year before.
The year 2014 also saw the implementation of the ‘Pentaksiran Tingkatan 3’ (PT3) by the Ministry of
Education that effectively replaced the PMR public examinations. Although PINTAR secondary schools
registered a perceived low passing rate of 31%, there is wide acknowledgement of some teething
problems in this new examination system that the Ministry of Education will seek to address. We
remain optimistic for better outcomes in the future for our schools.
Apart from examination results, other indicators for PINTAR schools include
the LINUS rating for Bahasa Melayu, Mathematics and English. The LINUS for
PINTAR schools measured over two years in 2013 and 2014 with the same
cohort of students saw a significant improvement, most notably in English,
which had improved by five percentage points. The ratings for both Bahasa
Melayu and Mathematics also saw an increase of about 2 percentage
points each. Average school attendance rates for PINTAR students
also remained steady at 91%.
The year 2014 has also been a year where the Foundation has focused its efforts on measuring and
evaluating the programmes run by its members and partners, as well as the Foundation at schools.
Feedback received through schools visits and surveys have indicated a high level of satisfaction
among the stakeholders in schools towards the PINTAR Programme. 95% of respondents agreed on
the effectiveness of programmes run by the company that adopts them, as well as PINTAR’s National
Programmes. This indicates that the

goals that have been set by the Ministry of Education, but approached in a fun and interactive manner
that not only engages the students, but create a lasting impression that stays with them as they grow.
The PINTAR National Programmes help students to stimulate their thinking, discover their talents, as
well as instil good moral values.
In 2014, PINTAR Foundation implemented three national programmes: PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit,
PINTAR Go Green School Programme and the Leadership Programme for PINTAR School Leaders.
PINTAR Mobile Learning Unit (PMLU)
The PMLU is a bus converted into a fun learning space which aims to provoke action and thought
among students of PINTAR schools. Introduced in 2009, the PMLU remains one of the most anticipated
national programmes in the PINTAR Foundation stable. The Foundation maintains two PMLU units, and
the buses run during the school year to visit PINTAR schools.

National Programmes
Realising the need to escalate the promotion of holistic education, PINTAR Foundation runs
programmes at the national level for its PINTAR schools to cultivate creative and innovative students.
These programmes are funded, designed, implemented, managed and monitored by the Foundation
imbued with varying themes based on the Foundation’s key tenets, which are ‘Promoting Intelligence’,
‘Nurturing Talent’, and ‘Advocating Responsibility’. The programmes complement existing efforts and
The theme for the year 2013/2014 was ‘Nurturing Talent,’ which featured
learning stations that are tailored towards getting PINTAR students to
cultivate an ambition or a goal in life that they can aspire to. PMLU1 was
furnished with various displays and hands-on activities related to careers
such as aeronautics, sound engineering, photography, medicine, culinary
arts and sports; while PMLU2 was specifically designed to inspire the
students’ interest in science, mathematics, art and performing arts.

OPERATIONS REVIEW
Between February to November 2014, the PMLU covered all states in the Peninsula Malaysia, visiting
a total of 231 schools and 10 orphanages. The PMLU ended its journey in 2014 in the state of Johor,
and was retired at the end of the year to be refurbished for the new theme, ‘Promoting Intelligence’
in 2015.
Since the programme began in 2012, it has involved a total of 2,738 students from 71 schools across
Malaysia. The programme was conducted in three phases, with a batch of about 900 students in
each phase. The programme ended in 2014, with the conclusion of Phase 3 for 21 schools, and the
Train-the-Trainer teachers’ Workshop which involved 36 teachers in 20 schools nationwide.

PINTAR Go Green School Programme
By aligning with one of the Foundation’s key tenets, ‘Advocating Responsibility’, PINTAR, in partnership
with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), executed the Go Green School Programme. The
Foundation is cognisant that good habits need to be cultivated from a young age and this programme
endeavours to inspire young PINTAR students to adopt responsible lifestyles and attitudes that are
more environmentally conscious.
The programme is based on the Green ROSE concept, ROSE being the acronym for ‘Reduce, Offset,
Substitute and Enhance’. The concept fosters environmental stewardship in students as part of
PINTAR Foundation’s initiative to promote behavioural change in the attitude of individuals towards
the environment. This is done through a series of activities for students as well as teachers that serve
to inculcate strong values to protect the environment.

Leadership Programme for PINTAR School Leaders
Recognising the important role that school leaders play in creating the right learning environment
and motivating teachers and students, in September 2011, the Foundation embarked on a mission
to develop their capacities and capabilities. This led to the creation of the Leadership Programme for
PINTAR School Leaders (LPPSL) which aligns with PINTAR’s third core module, ‘Capability and Capacity
Building’. The programme provides awareness and understanding of key critical factors that assist
school leaders in spearheading effectiveness and excellence in their schools.
In 2014, PINTAR Foundation completed Phase 2, Batch 3 of the programme
that covered three key areas relevant to school leadership: leadership and
management; leading learning; and gather, use and analyse data.
The programme aims to deepen the understanding of the school leadership role; to share the best
practices in school leadership and management; as well as to provide opportunities for the school
principals to apply effective management models in their leadership role at their respective schools. The
LPPSL programme is a strategic capacity building programme which recognises that highly motivated
and dedicated teaching workforce is key to creating positive impact to schools and students alike.
Accomplishments in 2014
• Activity
: Leadership Programme for PINTAR School Leaders Phase 2, Batch 3
• Participants : 27 school leaders from 16 schools in Pulau Pinang, Perak, Johor, Melaka and
Negeri Sembilan
• Achievement : 93% of the participants were satisfied with the training
to garner feedback from them. This led to the development of our Monitoring and Evaluation system
of our members’ programmes. PINTAR staff were deployed to gather feedback that would ultimately
help us improve the programme and activities under the PINTAR umbrella. The Foundation has also
continued with activities throughout the year to actively engage with State Education Departments
(JPN) and the Ministry of Education (MoE) that helped paved the way for better facilitation of
programmes at PINTAR schools.
PINTAR Roundtables
Since its establishment, PINTAR Foundation has organised bi-annual Roundtable sessions for its
members and partners. The Roundtables provide the platform for the sharing of knowledge and
experience, whilst encouraging collaboration amongst members in order to bring the PINTAR
Programme to greater heights. Two Roundtables were held in 2014.
The 21st Roundtable was held on 21 February 2014 at Mercu UEM. The half-day session began with a
presentation on PINTAR schools’ performance for UPSR, PMR and SPM, and an analysis of programmes
by Members and the Satisfaction Survey results for 2013. The PINTAR team then went on to present
the Foundation’s upcoming programmes in 2014.
A sharing session was also done by Malaysia Airline Systems (MAS) and SMK Juasseh, followed by a
presentation by Tuan Haji Aminuddin Adam, the Deputy Director of School Management Division,
MoE, who elaborated on the importance of the engagement and involvement of the private sector in
empowering public schools in the country. He informed participants on MoE’s seven focus areas for the
school adoption programme, and called for the assistance of the member companies to develop higher
order thinking skills (HOTS) through co-curricular activities. The event ended with a final presentation
by Mr. Caspar Mays, the English Programmes Manager for the British Council who introduced members
to British Council’s English programmes for schools.
Stakeholder Engagement
The success of the PINTAR Programme lies in the effective collaboration of various stakeholders. By
working closely and addressing the needs and concerns of each stakeholder, the Foundation has
ensured that the students and schools will ultimately gain the most out of the Programme. One of
PINTAR’s primary activity for the year 2014 has largely centred on closer engagement with our schools

The 22nd Roundtable was held on 24 September 2014 at the Pullman Hotel, Bangsar. Aside from
the usual report by PINTAR to members, the event also featured a sharing session by Mr. Teoh Boon
Hai, the Chief Assistant Director for MoE’s Educational Technology Division (BTP). Mr. Teoh urged
PINTAR members to look at ways on how they can implement some of BTP’s initiatives at their
schools in collaboration with their partners. The second sharing session was by Pn. Nursoraya Abdul
Rahman, Vice President for CSR at Iskandar Investment Berhad (IIB). In her session, Pn. Nursoraya
showcased the work IIB has been doing with the Johan Cruyff Foundation, and in particular, the
Cruyff Court project.
Engaging the Ministry of Education (MoE) and State Education
Departments (JPN)
To ensure that all programmes and processes are aligned with the Ministry of Education (MoE), the
Foundation has always worked closely with related departments within the ministry to ensure not only
transparency, but accountability and assurance. The Foundation continues to receive valuable support
and patronage by the MoE and State Education Departments (Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri or JPN) for
programmes under the PINTAR stable.
Throughout 2014, the Foundation regularly engaged with various departments within MoE and JPNs
to update them on not only PINTAR’s progress, but also to stimulate frank and honest dialogue
between both parties to understand, capture and address concerns and issues. In 2014, PINTAR
visited a total of ten JPNs in the states of Kuala Lumpur, Pulau Pinang, Perlis, Labuan, Sarawak,
Terengganu, Johor, Selangor, Melaka and Kelantan.
Monitoring and Evaluation
In 2014, the Foundation seriously looked at how it could improve the Monitoring and Evaluation of
the PINTAR Programme. The M&E development exercise which began in 2013 was completed in March
2014 and several briefings were held for active members to brief and coach them on how to use the
M&E templates that have been developed to monitor their programmes at their adopted schools.
In order to determine the match between the school’s needs against the programmes run by the
members, the PINTAR team visited a total of 24 schools in Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Selangor,
Johor, Kedah, Perlis and Perak to conduct our own surveys with the schools. The school visits were
done from late August until the middle of November in 2014, with a target of at least one school
from each active member. A total of 76 respondents comprising Headmasters, Senior Assistants and
teachers were interviewed, with a largely positive outcome. The M&E exercise at the schools allowed
the Foundation to gauge the effectiveness of the four Core Modules and how the programmes have
benefitted the target groups. Apart from this, it also enabled us to measure the respondents’ level
of satisfaction with the Foundation, as well as members’ engagement at the school. Most of all,
the M&E exercise provided feedback that enabled the Foundation to identify specific areas for
improvement that can escalate the PINTAR Programme to greater heights in the future.
During each visit, PINTAR updated them on PINTAR’s progress, while the respective JPN provided
feedback and advice. The visits also allowed PINTAR representatives to get better acquainted with JPN
officers that they have worked with, as well as with recently appointed ones.
Apart from the M&E exercise for the programmes under the PINTAR umbrella, we also hold satisfaction
surveys annually with key stakeholder groups – PINTAR members as well as PINTAR School teachers
and students, to get feedback on the Foundation.
In 2014, the members’ satisfaction survey conducted was focused on their perception of the
Foundation, support provided by PINTAR staff, as well as the quality and effectiveness of PINTAR
National Programmes. The satisfaction score average for the survey was 89%, indicating that the

Revamped Website
In 2014, we embarked on revamping our existing website, with the addition of new sections and
pages. Realising the need to stay relevant online, and to keep up with the changing trends, we made
our website more attractive and interactive, to ensure that our stakeholders are always up-to-date on
PINTAR news, whether it is in the form of media releases, articles, newsletters, or simply as a place for
one to read the latest news regarding important developments related to education in Malaysia.
members place a high level of value on the services rendered by the Foundation, and we will be working
towards ensuring the satisfaction levels continue to improve.
Building Brand Equity
Building the PINTAR brand has been one of the main priorities of the Foundation over the years, as it
is highly important for PINTAR to establish itself as the centre of excellence in school adoption that
will in turn make it attractive for corporate Malaysia to come on board as members. Our strategy
to strengthen the PINTAR brand to create greater awareness continues to guide us in 2014. The
Foundation made modest progress in 2014, with the strengthening of the PINTAR brand awareness
through media coverage, strides made in grass-roots awareness at public events, the revamping of the
Foundation’s website, and a revitalisation of our social media approach.
Media Engagement
The Foundation continues to actively engage with the media to reaffirm and reinforce the PINTAR
cause to a wider audience in a positive, consistent and credible manner. PINTAR leverages on its
National Programmes and other activities to gain the attention of the media, while cultivating a
close relationship with journalists and editors. This is done by understanding what the media needs
and wants for its content, and allowing them access to information within PINTAR that would be
able to meet their expectations. This has proven to be a good strategy for the year 2014, as the
Communications team was able to garner interview spots for a number of prominent print, online and
broadcast media that have led to greater publicity for the PINTAR programme, achieving a Media Value
Index worth RM1.87 million.
The new revamped website, launched in April 2014, is also fully integrated with various social media
platforms, with capabilities to accept online donations directly from members of the public. The Bahasa
Malaysia version of the website was launched in August 2014 to cater to a wider audience.
Brand Messaging through Print, Online and Social Media
It has become increasingly more important for organisations today to utilise online and social media
platforms to communicate with multiple stakeholders. In 2014, PINTAR added two more social media
platforms; Twitter and LinkedIn to maintain a more engaging relationship with its stakeholders. Apart
from enabling the Foundation to relay information to the public in real time, the social media platforms
also allowed us to push information on PINTAR’s own website to its social media platforms, while
reinforcing the PINTAR brand to an audience that has become increasingly more internet savvy.
We also produce and publish a quarterly newsletter which keeps our key stakeholders abreast of the
most recent activities and achievements, and gives an added value to PINTAR members. The newsletter
features the activities and programmes that the members and partners run at PINTAR schools which in
turn lends a “voice” to the schools as well. The PINTAR Voices has also been one of the key marketing
tools used to promote the PINTAR programme, and plans are in store in the coming year to revamp the
newsletter to garner greater interest.
Fundraising
The year 2014 saw PINTAR Foundation exploring new avenues for fund-raising and participated in two
public exhibitions for this purpose.

In November, the PINTAR team was at the Malaysian Islamic Children’s Fair which was held at the
Shah Alam Convention Centre. During the event, PINTAR Foundation was able to position itself as a
reputable non-profit organisation dedicated towards helping children achieve their potential. Visitors
to the Foundation’s booth enjoyed free face-painting, while learning more about the PINTAR cause.
In the following month, the PINTAR team was at Iskarnival, held at Educity Sports Complex in Johor
Bahru. Iskarnival participants were treated to a mini library at the Foundation’s booth, where children
were able to enjoy reading books provided by Asia Foundation, as well as learn more about the two
books published for PINTAR Foundation, which are the ‘Malaysian Art Book for Children,’ and ‘Beating
the Odds.’
The marketing and fund-raising team were able to raise a total of RM31,800 from the sales of the
books in 2014.
PINTAR Consultancy Service
English Literacy Programme Sponsored by UEM Group Berhad
The English Literacy Programme (ELP) sponsored by UEM Group focuses on strengthening the
teaching and learning of the English language through capacity building using a variety of methods
which include quality delivery structures; supportive intervention and community involvement to
help enhance and develop students’ reading, writing, understanding and speaking skills in English.
Executed in 50 primary schools, the ELP seeks to improve teachers’ ability to teach English in a manner
that will help enhance the way students learn the language and ultimately to be able to speak and
write in English.
In 2014, the ELP entered its last year of the programme. Started in April 2012, the programme
concluded in March 2015. The year 2014 continued to focus on face-to-face training for teachers, and
mentoring sessions at schools by British Council trainers.
Besides that, a major student activity which commenced in 2013 – Action Song, culminated in two
regional competitions in February 2014, whilst drama training for students started in the last quarter
of the year. In addition, seven reading circles under the ‘Learn English Family’, a project to actively
engage parents in promoting literacy were completed.
The ELP is fully funded by UEM Group Berhad, and is managed, co-ordinated and monitored by PINTAR
Foundation. The British Council, noted for its expertise in managing and delivering educational projects
in diverse communities, was appointed as the Programme Partner to design and deliver the teacher
development programme over the three years.

Danajamin 100 (Student Leadership Programme)
The Danajamin 100 programme is a bespoke three-year leadership programme funded by Danajamin
Nasional Berhad which kicked off in the last quarter of 2014. For the first cohort of the programme,
PINTAR secondary schools in Selangor and Negeri Sembilan were invited to nominate eligible students
for the programme. A total of 80 students applied for the programme from five schools in both states.
From this, it was shortlisted to 40 students who had to attend a Students’ Selection Camp at the
Commonwealth Forest Park and Resort where students participated in specific activities designed to
identify the best candidates. Following this, 30 students were selected as the first cohort.
The 30 students who were chosen from this camp went on to undergo an orientation session and
training at the Outward Bound School in Lumut, Perak for five days in November 2014.
This first cohort will be attending smart learning camps, study excellence programmes, and a holiday
leadership camp in 2015, while another selection process will begin for the programme’s second batch
of students.
Employee Development
The Foundation’s progress is attributed to the dedication and passion of the people within it.
We value the role of our staff and the contributions they make towards the continued success
and smooth operations of all activities and programmes under the Foundation. As the pulse of
the organisation, the staff members’ continued wellbeing remains a top priority. The Foundation
continues to stay committed towards providing a safe and conducive work environment and culture
in which their welfare is assured. In order to ensure that the staff members remain motivated, the
Foundation continues to emphasize on staff welfare and building their capabilities with relevant
training and development that not only help improve processes within the Foundation, but stimulate
a sense of learning that excites them.
In 2014, PINTAR Foundation had 18 staff, and based on a training needs analysis, they were enrolled
in programmes conducted by external trainers on Microsoft Office Excel skills, Presentation Skills;
Business Writing; and Coaching and Mentoring for Educational Development, where each employee
received an average of two training days.

Bank Islam believes that every child should be
given equal opportunity to get the education he or
she deserves, especially those from impoverished
families and underserved communities. In the
effort to level the playing field between urban and
rural children, the Bank has affiliated with PINTAR
Foundation in its School Adoption Programme.
Since our involvement with the programme in
2008, we have adopted 18 schools across the
country, assisting the Foundation to educate and
impart useful skills to more than 15,000 primary
school students nationwide. Under the PINTAR
programme, the Bank has supported various
activities developed by the foundation in its effort
to provide quality education for all and ensuring
schools and students receive adequate aid to
attain the highest standards of education.
Biodiesel Workshops
Organised in collaboration with Universiti
Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), the Biodiesel workshop
is aimed to raise awareness on the conservation
and preservation of the environment among
youths. Named as ‘[email protected]
in School!’, the workshop introduced the biodiesel
portable mini reactor developed by the university
with the financial sponsorship from the Bank. The
portable mini reactor converts used cooking oil
into biodiesel.
In its effort to spread the benefits of biodiesel,
the workshop shed light on how this form of fuel
is less harmful to the environment compared to
conventional fuel. Demonstrations for PINTAR
students were done to show how the portable
biodiesel mini reactors worked.
Various other interactive activities were also
conducted including demonstrations on the
process of making soaps, juices and ice cream,
among others. Overall, the programme had a
positive impact on nearly 700 students from the
five schools adopted by the Bank.
Survivor Camp
Conducted by the 25th Battalion Rejimen Askar
Melayu DiRaja Camp, Bentong, Pahang, this
programme received popular reviews from both
the adopted schools and the parents. The 3-day,
2-night programme was customised to suit
the participants’ capacity and capabilities. The
module, which focuses on character-building,
patriotism and survival skills, was carried out
with the aim of building the students’ selfconfidence and leadership skills, while fostering
the spirit of healthy competition and teamwork.
Among the activities carried out are lessons and
training on public speaking, motivation, first aid,
jungle trekking, map reading, cooking, marching
and obstacle course race, among others. This
programme saw the involvement of 150 students
and 15 teachers from three schools.
The Bank has also financially supported six
other programmes and activities for their
adopted schools. This includes the Jaya Waris
motivational course which provided parents
with insights into their children’s behaviour
and taught them how to motivate their
children. Other programmes included UPSR
clinics, English communications workshops and
capacity building workshops for teachers.
Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad
“PINTAR Programme has helped us to
reach out to those who really matter.
By affiliating ourselves with PINTAR,
Bank Islam’s CSR education initiatives
have been tailored to benefit children
or students who come from poor
economic backgrounds, who otherwise
would not be able to afford access to
learning facilities available to well-to-do
students. Participation in PINTAR also
had a clear positive effect on our staff
whereby they are now more likely to
translate their empathy into action; to
get more involved in social programmes
and volunteer their effort to make
meaningful contributions to society.”

Since its establishment in 2007, CIMB Foundation
has adopted 20 schools, with ten of them
currently active. The CIMB Foundation-PINTAR
programme aims at helping underperforming
schools to improve their overall academic
performance, mainly focusing on improving the
understanding and usage of the English language
among its pupils. This is realised by motivating the
active schools through rewarding top achievers as
well as involving them in fun English language
activities that allow them to be more confident in
using the language.
CIMB Foundation-PINTAR Award
Ceremony
The 7th PINTAR School prize-giving ceremony
was held at Sunway Lost World of Tambun,
Perak on 29 December 2014. The event was held
to recognise the achievements in both academic
and non-academic excellence of more than 140
pupils and honoured schools that performed well
this year.
Each pupil received cash prizes ranging from
RM500 – RM1,500 for their award category
and back to school kits. Additionally, pupils are
awarded RM1,000 if they secured a place in a
boarding school. During the ceremony, Sekolah
Seri Perlis was nominated Best School, followed
by SJKC Tong Yuh and SK Seri Muda with cash
prizes worth RM10,000, RM8,000 and RM5,000.

English Language Contest
Day in Kedah and Perlis PINTAR
Schools
In an effort to help create a more competitive
environment, a series of English Language
Contests were held. Four competitions: Spelling
Bee, Quiz, Story Telling and Scrabble were
adopted into the programme for both Level 1
and Level 2 pupils. The pupils first competed
within their respective schools and the finalists
were then selected to compete at the interschool level on 23 August 2014.
More than 350 pupils gathered at Sekolah
Kebangsaan Seri Perlis in Kangar, Perlis for the
English Language Contest’s Final Round. The
objectives of the one-day event were to instil
interest in the English language amongst the
pupils, expose them to learning the language
through fun and exciting activities and to boost
their confidence and self-esteem.
SK Kuala Perlis, the lowest performing school
among the 10 schools, emerged as the overall
best school, followed by SK Pedu and SJK
(C) Tong Yuh. Each winning school received
RM2,000, RM1,500 and RM1,000 respectively.
It is hoped that such activities will help the
schools realise that being categorised as rural
and low-performing schools does not mean
that the pupils have no future. It has been
proven here that pupils can do wonders if they
are given the right stimuli and motivation.
CIMB FOUNDATION
“CIMB Foundation has been a part of
PINTAR family since our establishment in
2007. We have seen how the programme
has enriched the lives of countless
undeserved pupils who would otherwise
not have had the opportunity to blossom.
Our employees love volunteering for the
programmes and activities as it boost their

DANAJAMIN NASIONAL BERHAD
Danajamin Nasional Berhad adopted its first
school, SK Petaling (1), as a Premium member
of PINTAR Foundation in June 2013. Their far
reaching objective is to improve the rating band
of the school and elevate its overall standing
relative to other schools. Upon adoption,
Danajamin’s priority was to improve the overall
passing rates of the students, particularly
standard 6 pupils.
Danajamin’s involvement stretches beyond that
of their adopted school as in November 2014,
they launched the Danajamin100 Leadership
Programme which aims to develop and maximise
the potential of Malaysia’s future leaders by
providing selected Form 4 students exposure
to a variety of well-designed engagements to
optimise their leadership promise and potential.

Danajamin100 Leadership
Programme
Elevating and improving their
adopted school
Spread over a period of 3 years, activities
and training modules under the structured
programme focuses on character building,
leadership, communication, and other soft skills.
The Danajamin100 programme has begun with
the first batch of thirty Form 4 students from
PINTAR schools within Selangor and Negeri
Sembilan. The students were selected based on
academic as well as non-academic performance.
PINTAR Foundation was appointed by Danajamin
to manage and monitor the programme under
its PINTAR Consultancy Service.
Danajamin’s support for the school took a
two pronged approach which was to address
the material and emotional/mental needs of
the students and teachers alike. This entailed
providing tangible support in the form of books
and other study materials as well as intangible
support in the form of motivational-type
programmes in order to promote learning.
The Danajamin100 programme will create a
diverse and intelligent pool of talent that can
lead effectively and compete successfully for
the nation. The programme also aims to inspire
the organisation’s staff members to volunteer as
mentors of these students.
In determining the planned activities in 2014,
conscious effort was taken to involve the
teachers in the decision making process with the
aim of empowering them and most important of
all, to obtain their buy-in and support.
Amongst the more notable projects that
were carried out in 2014 were; upgrading
and restocking of the school library, provision
of exercise books to Standard 6 pupils, a
motivational course for students, teachers
and parents, various examination clinics based
on subjects for students and funding a trip to
Kidzania for Standard 6 pupils, to motivate and
increase school attendance.
“As our organization grew, so did our need to reach out and help more deserving Malaysian
students. That’s how we came about to work with PINTAR. With its wide network of schools
coupled with an in-depth knowledge of the Malaysian education system, the PINTAR Foundation
and its programme was a springboard for Danajamin to realise our goal of improving access to
education at a national level. Our first project with SK Petaling only helped to reinforce this as
the staff took a personal interest in the students and they basked in the student’s academic
achievements. Through future collaborations with PINTAR, we look forward to further increasing
staff engagement and enhancing the staff’s personal development by providing them the
opportunity to discover their core strengths through various involvements with students.”

of Malaysia Airlines. As the Group CEO, I am proud of the resilience which has brought our MH
team together through the two major tragedies that have affected our brand as a national carrier
throughout the past one year or so. While it has been an extremely difficult and painful year in
2014, we do continue to provide assistance to our four adopted schools located in the region of
Peninsular Malaysia. We were unable to proceed with our volunteering work for the MH PINTAR
programme under PINTAR Core Module 1. However, we continue our support by extending flight
tickets sponsorship for students to participate in the various international events.
At the heart of everything that we have done, Malaysia Airlines remains committed in our duties
and role in serving the communities especially PINTAR programme under our Corporate Social

other students to achieve good results in
their examinations. It is hoped that with this
programme, students will be motivated to excel
in their studies.

Enhancing Education through
Field Visits
Technip ensures that students in its adopted
school experience education through field
visits that are not only educational, but instils a
sense of wonder that serves to inspire them. In
March 2014, the students together with their
teachers visited the Petrosains Playsmart centre
and the Marine Aquarium and Museum. Both
visits exposed the students to the usability
and application of mathematics and science in
their daily lives as well as creating awareness
on the importance of preserving the marine
environment. In November, Standard Six students
were treated to a field trip to Muzium Negeri and
the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park.
Developing Minds through
Creativity
Having been with the PINTAR family since 2010,
Technip has focused its efforts towards the
transformation of SK Ulu Lumagar in Sabah.
The company has since organised interesting
programmes and exciting events for the students
to enhance their learning and development
experience.

PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
In order to inculcate confidence, build social skills
as well as open up creative expression among
students, Technip organised a creative arts
programme called Ocean Art Day at the school.
The event involved all students and teachers,
as well as local graffiti artists and Technip
representatives. Students were encouraged to
use their imagination to create characters and
make unique and creative props for their drama
presentation. They also attended a talk by a
marine educator to learn more about marine
animals and how to use them in their character
development for their drama production.
In addition, the students also assisted and
contributed towards the mural painting done
by local artists at their school as part of a teambuilding programme.
Building the Capacity and
Capabilities of Teachers
and increasing academic
performance
In April, Technip brought teachers from the
school in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for a special
team-building activity. The event aimed to build
teamwork spirit and to raise awareness towards
each other’s capabilities and potential to think
and create actions outside the box.
They’ve also placed emphasis on the students’
academic performances, with the execution
of several specific academic enhancement
programmes. These were ‘Project 5A, Sifar E’,
‘Perkampungan UPSR’, and rewarding academic
excellence by giving out awards. In ‘Project 5A’
students with high potential were given special
attention to ensure that they excelled in their
UPSR, while non-performing students went
through ‘Sifar-E’ to ensure that they did not fail.

“The PINTAR school adoption
programme enables us to play a

– ‘Encouraging a fair return for all’.
We hope to see in the future a pool
of highly skilled, knowledgeable and
confident Malaysian talents who are
ready to take on the world.”
Connecting with the
Community
Through their ‘Jejak Murid’ programme, Technip

Learning Unit
The aviation station was my favourite! It was
the first time I learned how to use a flight
simulator, and we kept taking turns with
my other classmates. It certainly has given
me the motivation to work hard at school
so that perhaps one day I can be a pilot, and
fly a real plane. The others stations, like the
photography and sports, was a lot of fun
too, and made me think more about what I
want to be when I grow up.

PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
I found the LPPSL by PINTAR Foundation to be extremely
beneficial for teaching and leading. I shared all that I
have learned at training sessions for the teachers at
my own school, and 100% of them found the methods
to be good. Teachers have informed me that they have
enjoyed me “micro-teaching” them, and the methods
they have learned have cascaded down to the students,
where they are currently enjoying active learning. I have
since left for a new school, and am still carrying out the
same methods. Sometimes I find myself wishing that
PINTAR will adopt the new school that I am in now so
that we can continue to enjoy the many other wonderful
programmes conducted by PINTAR Foundation.

School Programme
Since the implementation of the programme,
our students have become more aware of the
importance of conserving the environment for
the future generations to come. Their passion
and change in behavior since the programme
has resulted in not only a much cleaner school
compound, but have led to the students actively
recycling and reusing wastes. We have since
retained all lessons learned through the Go Green
Programme in all subjects, including co-curriculum
activities – whereas it used to be only confined
within the Science subject.

The English Literacy Programme that my son
attended was truly different compared to the usual
school activities he has attended. He’s loved it since
it first began, and both his confidence and command

the school, who all came together to make the
production better.

The programme helped me a lot in terms of
improving how I learn in school. I’ve always
been rather overwhelmed when it comes
to school, as I find juggling between all the
subjects I learn in school, and revising for all
of them at home to be at times confusing.
The programme has taught me on how to be
more organised, and to prioritise, enabling
me to get the most out of my revision time,
and this has made school work much easier to
manage, and even enjoyable.
This programme has been very important and
meaningful for me, as I have learnt a lot of
skills that I previously did not know, as I was
never trained to teach English. I now know
how to manage the class better, and how to
effectively reward the students in class. The
programme has particularly improved how I
approached listening and speaking skills for
the students. Now I know how to specifically
approach it, that would allow the students to
speak up more in class.

Independent auditors’ report
to the members of PINTAR FOUNDATION (INCORPORATED IN MALAYSIA)
Report on the financial statements
Opinion
We have audited the financial statements of PINTAR Foundation, which comprise the statement of
financial position of the Company as at 31 December 2014, and the statement of comprehensive
income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows of the Company for the year then
ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information, as set out
on pages 51 to 61.
In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Company
as at 31 December 2014 and of its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended
in accordance with the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards, International Financial Reporting
Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act, 1965 in Malaysia.
Trustees’ responsibility for the financial statements
The Trustees of the Company are responsible for the preparation of financial statements that give
a true and fair view in accordance with the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards, International
Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act, 1965 in Malaysia. The
Trustees are also responsible for such internal control as the Trustees determine is necessary to enable
the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud
or error.
Auditors’ responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We
conducted our audit in accordance with approved standards on auditing in Malaysia. Those standards
require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in
the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgment, including the assessment
of risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making
those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the Company’s preparation of financial
statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the
circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s
internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used
and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the Trustees, as well as evaluating the overall
presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis
for our audit opinion.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
– 31 December 2014
1. Corporate information
2.3 Standards issued but not yet effective
The principal activities of the Company are to enhance the education, development of human
capital in nation building which will benefit the Malaysian society and community at large. There
have been no significant changes in the nature of the principal activities during the financial year.
The Company is a company limited by guarantee, incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia. The
registered office of the Company is located at Level 33, Tower 2, Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala
Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur.
2.4 Significant accounting estimates and judgments
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with MFRSs requires the use of certain
accounting estimates and exercise of judgments. Estimates and judgments are continuously
evaluated and are based on past experience, reasonable expectations of future events and
other factors.
The directors are of the opinion that there are no key assumptions concerning the future and
other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date, that have a significant risk
of causing material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the
next financial year.
The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Trustees in accordance with a
resolution of the Trustees on 4 June 2015.
2. Significant accounting policies
2.1Basis of preparation
The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the
provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and with the Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards
(“MFRSs”), which is in compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standards
(“IFRS”) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”).
The financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis.
The financial statements are presented in Ringgit Malaysia (“RM”), which is also the
Company’s functional currency.
2.2 Changes in accounting policies
The directors expect that the new MFRSs which are issued but not yet effective for the
financial year ended 31 December 2014 will not have a material impact on the financial
statements of the Company in the period of initial application.
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies
(a) Property and equipment
All items of property and equipment are initially recorded at cost. The cost of an item of
property and equipment is recognised as an asset if, and only if, it is probable that future
economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Company and the cost of
the item can be measured reliably.
Subsequent to recognition, property and equipment are measured at cost less
accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Repair and maintenance
costs are recognised in profit or loss as incurred.
The new and revised MFRSs, which are mandatory for companies with financial period
beginning on or after 1 January 2014, did not give rise to any significant effects on the
financial statements of the Company.

The carrying values of property and equipment are reviewed for impairment when events
or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.
The residual values, useful life and depreciation method are reviewed at each financial
year-end, and adjusted prospectively, if appropriate.
An item of property and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future
economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal. Any gain or loss on derecognition
of the asset is included in the profit or loss in the year the asset is derecognised.
(b) Grants
54
Current tax assets and liabilities are measured at the amount expected to be
recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. The tax rates and tax laws used
to compute the amount are those that are enacted or substantively enacted by the
reporting date.
Current taxes are recognised in profit or loss except to the extent that the tax
relates to items recognised outside profit or loss, either in other comprehensive
income or directly in equity.
Depreciation of other property and equipment is computed on a straight-line over the
estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:
Computer software
Website development
Renovation
Furniture and fittings
Office equipment
Computer equipment
Motor vehicle
Grants are recognised at their fair value where there is reasonable assurance that the
grant will be received and all conditions attached will be met. Grants relating to income,
shall be recognised in profit or loss on a systematic basis over the periods in which
the entity recognises as expenses the related costs for which the grants are intended
to compensate. Grants relating to an asset, are amortised to profit or loss over the
expected useful life of the relevant asset by equal annual instalments or presented in the
balance sheet by deducting the grants in arriving at the carrying amount of the asset.
PINTAR FOUNDATION ANNUAL REPORT 2014
(d) Impairment of non-financial assets
The Company assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an
asset may be impaired. If any such indication exists, or when an annual impairment
assessment for an asset is required, the Company makes an estimate of the asset’s
recoverable amount.
An asset’s recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell
and its value in use. For the purpose of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at
the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows (cash-generating
units (“CGU”)).
In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows expected to be generated by
the asset are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects
current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the
asset. Where the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset
is written down to its recoverable amount. Impairment losses recognised in respect of
a CGU or groups of CGUs are allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of the other
assets in the unit or groups of units on a pro-rata basis.
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
– 31 December 2014
2. Significant accounting policies (cont’d)
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies (cont’d)
Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortised
cost using the effective interest method. Gains and losses are recognised in profit
or loss when the loans and receivables are derecognised or impaired, and through
the amortisation process.
(d) Impairment of non-financial assets (cont’d)
(f) Impairment of financial assets
Impairment losses are recognised in profit or loss in the period in which it arises. An
assessment is made at each reporting date as to whether there is any indication that
previously recognised impairment losses may no longer exist or may have decreased. A
previously recognised impairment loss is reversed only if there has been a change in the
estimates used to determine the asset’s recoverable amount since the last impairment
loss was recognised. If that is the case, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to
its recoverable amount. That increase cannot exceed the carrying amount that would
have been determined, net of depreciation, had no impairment loss been recognised
previously. Such reversal is recognised in profit or loss.
The Company assesses at each reporting date whether there is any objective evidence
that a financial asset is impaired.
(i)Receivables
To determine whether there is objective evidence that an impairment loss on
financial assets has been incurred, the Company considers factors such as the
probability of insolvency or significant financial difficulties of the debtor and default
or significant delay in payments.
If any such evidence exists, the amount of impairment loss is measured as the
difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated
future cash flows discounted at the financial asset’s original effective interest rate.
The impairment loss is recognised in profit or loss.
The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly
for all financial assets.
If in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the
decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was
recognised, the previously recognised impairment loss is reversed to the extent
that the carrying amount of the asset does not exceed its amortised cost at the
reversal date. The amount of reversal is recognised in profit or loss.
(e) Financial assets
Financial assets are recognised in the statement of financial position when, and only
when, the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the financial
instrument.
When financial assets are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value, plus
directly attributable transaction costs. The Company determines the classification of its
financial assets at initial recognition.
A financial asset is derecognised where the contractual right to receive cash flows
from the asset has expired. On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety, the
difference between the carrying amount and the sum of the consideration received and
any cumulative gain or loss that had been recognised in other comprehensive income is
recognised in profit or loss.
(g) Financial liabilities
(i) Loans and receivables
Financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an
active market are classified as loans and receivables.
Financial liabilities are classified according to the substance of the contractual
arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
– 31 December 2014
2. Significant accounting policies (cont’d)
Short term accumulating compensated absences such as paid annual leave are
recognised when services are rendered by employees that increase their entitlement
to future compensated absences. Short term non-accumulating compensated
absences such as sick leave are recognised when the absences occur.
2.5 Summary of significant accounting policies (cont’d)
(g) Financial liabilities (cont’d)
(ii) Defined contribution plan
Financial liabilities, within the scope of MFRS 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition
and Measurement, are recognised in the statement of financial position when, and
only when, the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the financial
instrument.
The Company’s financial liabilities include other payables.
Financial liabilities are recognised initially at fair value less directly attributable
transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective
interest method. Gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when the liabilities are
derecognised, and through the amortisation process.
(k) Income recognition
A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is extinguished.
Contribution from members are classified as equity.
For the purposes of the cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents include cash
on hand, cash at bank and deposits with licensed financial institutions which have an
insignificant risk of changes in value.
56
Wages, salaries, bonuses and social security contributions are recognised as an
expense in the year in which the associated services are rendered by employees.

counterparty default on its obligations. The Company’s exposure to credit risk arises from
other receivables and cash and bank balances.
A grant of RM20,000,000 was received from MOF in January 2009 for the purpose of carrying out
the Company’s programmes and initiatives.
On 29 August 2014, KNB granted the Company a grant of RM9,000,000 for a period of three
years, from July 2014 until June 2017, that will be distributed over six tranches of RM1,500,000
on every disbursement.
Other receivables are due from creditworthy debtors with good payment records with the
Company. The cash and bank balances of the Company are placed with reputable financial
institutions or companies with high credit ratings and no history of default.
