The Kinabatangan Trailblazer
Razman Durhan hails from a small town in Kinabatangan, Sabah and grew up in a big family of 8. His dream was to become an Economist, which led him to pursue Economics and Mathematics in University Malaysia Sabah. As the first in the family to pursue higher education, Razman was convicted to change the life trajectory of his community.
But the path has not been easy.
After his father fell ill, Razman became the main breadwinner of the family. To sustain his family’s livelihood and university expenses, Razman worked odd jobs as a construction crew and a dishwasher on weekends.
Moved by Razman’s story, AHAM Capital wanted to empower Razman further. In 2020, AHAM Capital partnered with us to sponsor Razman under the 2020 AHAM Capital - YTAR Scholarship. This enabled Razman to study and develop himself under our 2-year leadership development program unshackled by financial worries.
Razman recently graduated with a second class upper from Universiti Malaysia Sabah.
The 120 Strategy
To commemorate the legacy of YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman, our endowment fund was set up to empower deserving students like Razman through the Tunku Abdul Rahman Scholarship. Since 2007, we have been awarding 20 comprehensive scholarships each year to high-potential and under-represented Malaysian students to achieve their higher education goals and emerge as young leaders of Malaysia.
But with your support, we can double that.
