You've heard a similar song before. Malaysians, seeing the lack of opportunities for 20-something Malaysians who weren't born with silver spoons and convenient connections, decided to launch an organisation to help open up these opportunities.And they wanted to provide all of this for free.Co-founder Marques Jeevan was an active churchgoer in his youth, so social work had been a part of his life since a young age. Together with co-founder Zaim Mohzani and a few other faculty members, they poured their own hard-earned money into events and activities meant to even the odds and empower youths.

"[We wanted to] democratise opportunities," said Pixie Cigar, one of the current managers of Nation Building School.
