Created under the auspices of Putrajaya Committee of GLC High Performance and Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Yayasan Sejahtera was launched at our first pilot project site in Maran, Pahang, by Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak on 4 September 2009. Yayasan Sejahtera is dedicated to addressing extreme poverty in line with two National Key Result Areas: raising living standards of low-income households, and improving basic rural infrastructure.

Our work with the hardcore poor invests in both short term needs and long term outcomes. While Malaysia is a success story in the area of poverty reduction, the poor still rely on handouts which do not contribute towards long term impact or independent existence. Yayasan Sejahtera was created to demonstrate that there is a more sustainable approach to providing social welfare to communities.

We believe in collaboration and the goodwill of caring individuals and organisations. This includes Government-Linked Companies (GLCs), Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLICs), the private sector, government agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organisations and other players. Working together is essential to achieve success in poverty alleviation.

Our Objectives

•To ensure that Sejahtera communities have access to a basic standard of living and enjoy at least a 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, Government-Linked Investment Companies, and corporate Malaysia.
•To work in partnership with beneficiaries and civil society to leverage and maximise programme benefits.
