Educational, Welfare and Research Foundation (EWRF) over the years has worked at grass-roots as well as at macro level to improve the social, educational and economic welfare of the often marginalised Indian population in Malaysia. Since 1979, EWRF has brought positive changes to thousands of students and community members through various programs.
EWRF programmes have been designed to address the academic and social issues plaguing among young Indians in the country especially academically challenged students. Some of the programmes being carried out currently for the underachievers include:

  • Skills Training Initiatives(STI) : Coordinating the placement of underachieving students in Government Skills Training Institutes
  • Centre For Career, Counselling and Guidance(C3G) : Counselling for students to help them make decisions in choosing their career paths
  • Total Empowerment Camp (TEC): Intensive 21 days camp for UPSR students. The camp aims to create a smoother transition to the secondary schools and provide training on life skills
  •  English For Juniors (E4J): To improve the proficiency levels of English of the Standard 1 &2 students.
  • Civil Society Intervention (CSI): An innovative programme to address social issues plaguing young people
  • Empowering Challenged Kids (ECK): To totally immerse the students group in basic English, Bahasa Malaysia and Mathematics. Programme funded by Hong Leong Foundation
