Community Empowerment

Our community empowerment efforts are centred on creating sustainable livelihoods and support systems. As we expand regionally, we are committed to developing effective and affordable solutions that tackle issues of financial and social exclusion. Our interventions are driven by the belief that financial inclusion is a powerful enabler for economic growth.

Maybank Training & Learning Centre (TLC)

Many youth in the ASEAN Region are deprived of basic education or skills training. As a result, there are high levels of unemployment among youth who have little or no access to formal schooling. 


R.I.S.E. is an economic empowerment programme designed to support persons with disabilities and the marginalised community by helping them grow their income and become financially independent. This is done through the provision of intensive training, focused coaching and long-term mentoring.
