The Setia Caring Schools Programme is a smart partnership between Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) and SP Setia Foundation to promote “unity” and “loving culture” among school children from Malay, Chinese and Indian schools in Malaysia.

The project implementation covers six core elements which are: Caring for Family, Caring for Nature, Caring for the Environment, Caring for Schools, Caring for Friends, and Caring for Society.

Outdoor and field trip approaches were used through diverse activities including visual arts, cooking, gardening, creative game, community service, sport and motivation programmes.
