TARA Foundation students get laptops and tablets to aid in online learning during Covid-19 lockdown.

We strongly believe that every citizen ought to develop an initiative to work for a benefit of the country, mainly, so that they are self-reliant, self-sufficient and responsible citizens. We need to produce thinkers, who are well-educated and cultured, enabling them to empathize and share with the less-fortunate.

When families are economically empowered, they will have the skills to determine their own future and that of their children as well. Our findings show that a large percentage of the B40 community do not have the accurate information or guidance to start small or home businesses. This stems from the fact that many of them have little or no education at all about economic empowerment.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, teachers from most schools in Malaysia, especially ones built in rural areas, struggled to not only keep track of their students’ academic progress, but also in locating their students, who were not accessible during that time. Things took a turn for the worse, when schools were asked to execute lessons online, and most students found themselves stranded as they did not have the equipment to join online classes.


During this time, we at TARA Foundation identified underprivileged students who were struggling, and gave them the equipment needed for students to join school lessons, online. By doing this, we not only managed to keep students busy with school work instead of losing their youth to wasting time at home, but we also saw a dire need in raising a generation of students who are tech-savvy.


We hope to expand in what we teach our students, so that when they leave school at the age of 17, they will be well-equipped to be competent on the international stage. Students need to realize that the more skills they are equipped with, the better their chances at getting ahead from their peers of the same group.
