3 days.
In those 3 days, we all went through a journey.
56 teams from higher institutions from all over Malaysia congregated to one place for Pitch for Progress 2.0 : An Education Revolution, an initiative by ONE in collaboration with Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), Open Learning and Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation (APU).
 
The months of preparations and days of sleepless nights ended today with the finals of the competition attended by the Minister of Higher Education, Dato Seri Idris Jusoh, in which he judged the final 8 teams to see who had the best idea and pitched it best to revolutionise the Malaysian education system.
 

The winners were chosen, and surely they did their institutions proud, namely Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and MAHSA University.


We’re not a large group. Just a group of volunteers with the common goal of trying to make a positive difference in nation building in Malaysia.
 
Today, we surpassed our wildest expectations. We trended first in the country for the second day running. We handled our biggest crowd yet.
 
We ensured they got to know each other, we shared our dreams of Malaysia in 2057, we taught them financial literacy, we showed them what leadership was through persuasion, and they got to have exclusive time with the Minister.

Biggest thanks goes out to the ONE team, who did not have enough sleep for 3 days and worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the event.

 

To the volunteers of APU who ensured that everything ran well.
To the people of Ministry of Higher Education who gave us all the support necessary.
To the members of Open Learning who opened new platforms for us to explore. And finally to the participants who taught us more than we taught them.

Thank you.
