BASIC STANDARD OF LIVING

BUILDING COMMUNITIES FOR BETTER FUTURE

Sejahtera aims to continue looking ahead in increasing its efforts in poverty eradication in Malaysia. We will strive to seek ways, not only to help participants earn additional income, enhance the educational experience and improve living conditions by equipping them with basic living necessities, but also hopefully give them the awareness, realization as well as opportunities to believe that poverty is not a condition they have been destined to live in.

 

Our target group at Sejahtera is the low-income based on the national Poverty Line Index (PLI), the official indicator that measures poverty. Like any developing country, pockets of extreme poverty still exist. There are families that have slipped through the cracks who would benefit from a helping hand. This is what we do, with the support of caring individuals and corporates.

OUR OBJECTIVES

To ensure that Yayasan Sejahtera communities have access to a basic standard of living and enjoy at least minimum quality of life​

To support the creation of sustainable living environments for vulnerable communities in Malaysia​

To deliver this mandate through the efforts of Government-Linked Companies (GLC), Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLIC), and corporate in Malaysia

To work in partnership with beneficiaries and civil society partners to leverage and maximise programme benefits

With our four modules of Supporting Basic Needs, Providing Basic Community Services, and Supporting Sustainable Livelihoods, Sejahtera assisted more than 8,000 poor families since its inception in 2009.

 

Focusing on community adoption and uplifting the community it works in, Sejahtera aims to provide a holistic approach in community development by addressing different groups - Adults, Youth and Children - for a more comprehensive assistance to those needing it most.

At Yayasan Sejahtera, poverty is not about lack of access to economic opportunities but involves unfulfilled basic food need and lack of access to amenities and facilities considered standard to average Malaysian, such as water, electricity, health support, education, sanitation and basic housing amenities.
