What is Hati.my?
Hati.my is a non-profit portal on Malaysian charities, non-profit and non-governmental organisations, as well as underprivileged communities. Here’s a snapshot of what we do:
- List and update information on our bilingual directory
- Publicise fundraising appeals for homes and shelters
- Promote volunteer drives
- Support companies in raising awareness to their CSR programmes or charity projects
We hope that one day Hati.my will be the “central station” for all things community related, where charities, NGOs, underprivileged communities, donors, sponsors and support groups can link up effectively.
Who’s behind Hati.my?
Hati.my is run entirely by a group of volunteers under the Touching Hearts Welfare Society, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. The core team is made up of professionals - journalists, entrepreneurs and programmers. We welcome volunteers to help us update our growing bilingual directory, as we do our best to maintain the latest information on the database. We rely heavily on the support of our volunteers and information from listed organisations, so we appreciate any feedback on the social sector. Talk to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why do you need Hati.my?
Hati.my offers a solution to the lack of centralised information on charities and non-profit organisations in Malaysia. When a volunteer wants to help underserved communities or a donor wants to contribute funds to a cause, it is often difficult to find information as data on the less fortunate are not housed in one place. Using the internet offers volunteers, donors and charities to find information or update their needs readily.
We enable smaller charities to be highlighted, particularly those who are too busy to caring for their dependants and have little time publicising their needs. Through our regular online updates to charities, volunteers and donors, we hope that the little we do goes a long way.
What are our aspirations?
Hati.my hopes to create awareness about the benefits of volunteering and catalyse the volunteering spirit among people in and outside Malaysia. We hope that Hati.my will be a central information exchange where NGOs, charities, support groups, donors, sponsors and volunteers can communicate with each other, and work towards the common cause of helping the less fortunate.
