Our Empowerment Agenda
Empowering Lives& Transforming Communities
RYTHM joins forces with partners in many developing countries to work at the grassroots level to upscale rural communities’ social and economic status and disadvantaged segments of society such as vulnerable women, indigenous and other marginalised communities.
Projects have ranged from building infrastructure for better living conditions to holistic capacity-building initiatives to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions across all levels of these societies. Ultimately, our goal is to empower lives and transform underserved communities.
The measure of a progressive society is when men and women enjoy equal rights across all levels. Gender equality is a fundamental human right, and its achievement has immense socioeconomic implications.
RYTHM works toward unshackling disadvantaged young girls and women from the chains of gender inequality and poverty to gain agency over their own lives. We hope to empower them to become independent through sustainable livelihoods, so that they can speak up and contribute to challenging entrenched narratives that defy gender equality.
Community development is essential for laying the foundation to improve the lives of global citizens. All over the world, collective action is urgently needed to generate solutions to the world’s most pressing social and economic problems.
RYTHM proactively engages and works with communities around us to identify their challenges and meet their needs for socioeconomic growth and progress. We believe that with equal and equitable access to resources, underserved communities can achieve greater heights and build a sustainable legacy for their future generations.
Educate a Girl, Change the World
Throughout history, the central role of women in society has ensured the stability, progress and long-term development of nations. It is important for us to ensure that our girls are empowered to grow into conﬁdent, strong young women who become a formidable force for good.
Since its inception in 2010, the award-winning Maharani Programme has helped over 8,000 teenage girls from poor and underserved communities in Malaysia to navigate the challenges and vulnerabilities of adolescence through its various facets. Through the programme, the girls learn about gender equality, sexual and reproductive health, ethnicity and culture, and the importance of physical and spiritual wellness, giving them the tools to fulfill their potential.
