Yayasan Sejahtera seeks to help the extreme poor create a better life for themselves by equipping them with the necessary tools, skills, infrastructure and opportunities to break out of the poverty cycle. Our target group are families living on monthly income of less than RM460 in Peninsular Malaysia, RM630 in Sabah and RM590 in Sarawak. These are the minimum amount required to provide a household’s daily food needs, according to national standards. We design our projects to be sustainable, to empower the people in the long run.
Yayasan Sejahtera’s holistic approach to poverty alleviation is premised on four building blocks : Supporting Sustainable Livelihoods, Supporting Basic Food Needs, Providing Basic Community Services and Building & Rehabilitating Homes. While our key focus is building sustainable communities with the hardcore poor, we also believe in creating a shared value for corporates and the community we work with.
