Quality of education is a foundation of the development of society and as a developing nation, Malaysia is in need of a strong and sustainable education system to equip its young citizens with knowledge, values and skills for more life opportunities. While the Malaysian population that has received high education has grown throughout the years, Malaysian students are failing behind their peers in the country's regional neighbours. English proficiency and STEM knowledge are two important factors of employability in the 21st century. In order to increase the number of young Malaysians with the necessary skills for employment in today's world, the Malaysian education system needs to resolve the following issues:
1.) Students' low English proficiency level due to quality of national English language education.
2.) Students' subpar performance in applying science and mathematics knowledge.
3.) Gap in education quality between states and within states across Malaysia.

AIESEC is the world's largest non-profit youth-run organization. It is an international non-governmental not-for-profit organization that provides young people with leadership development, cross-cultural global internships, and volunteer exchange experiences across the globe. The organization focuses on empowering young leaders to make a positive impact on society through actions.
AIESEC strives for Peace and Fulfilment of Humankind's Potential as an organization.
In today’s context, ‘Peace’ does not necessarily mean only avoiding war. Peace can symbolize a world that does not have conflicts that arise from cultural, religious, or other aspects of differences in humanity. Peace can also symbolize being in harmony with yourself. AIESEC strives to build a world where people can work towards their own understanding of peace while respecting and understanding the views of others.
Through Fulfilment of Humankind’s Potential, AIESEC strives for a world where people can be the best version of themselves.
We place our confidence in youth because they have the passion, dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit that are needed to shape the future. They have the responsibility to improve tomorrow by choosing who they will be today. Hence, AIESEC is a platform for young leaders to run projects that are aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to ensure its relevance to the local community needs. We aim to be part of the solution for the betterment of Malaysia.
