TARA FOUNDATION
“Transforming Lives, Starting Young”

TARA, meaning “Star”, is a non-governmental organization since 2002. Like its name, it shines a bright future in uplifting the lives of underprivileged children and families. We organize tutoring classes as well as provide safe places for enrichment activities. These children are also brought on field trips to open up their perspectives on what is around them.

Coming from underprivileged families, we provide a support system to enable them to achieve a success story that even we always dreamt about. Currently providing education to around 700 kids across 14 centers in Malaysia, we aim to extend our hand and help more children living in challenging environments to be inspired and excel.

MISSION & VISION

To create the infrastructure and mobilize resources for the creation of New Generation Development Centres (@ Seva Gurukulams) and an “Online Learning Platform” to minimize or eliminate school dropouts by the year 2030.

OBJECTIVE

We at TARA Foundation are committed to helping create a better world that is wise, mature and peaceful. With such attributes, there can be achievement and sensibility in the world.

Our focus will be based on the 7 Pillars of Success to bring a change to the lives of the community

Education

Education is probably the most powerful tool available to mankind today to empower people. At TARA Foundation, we believe children are the leaders of tomorrow. Therefore, the importance of providing quality and critical thinking education for children starting from Primary 1 is of utmost importance.

Economic Empowerment

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

Advocacy

TARA FOUNDATION upholds the importance of promoting and defending another person’s rights, needs, and interests. Over the years, we have understood that it is not only about presenting the solution but first understand the issue and think about the child’s needs. Many children do not have birth certificates, identity cards. This makes it difficult to get enrolment in schools and then the web of poverty continues.

Mental & Physical Health

The emotional well-being of children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

Physical activity plays an important role as well in developing the brain and supporting essential mental functions. It improves motor skills such as hand-eye coordination, better thinking and problem-solving, stronger attention skills and improved learning. Not surprisingly, these all combine to benefit learning growth.

Welfare

Welfare and wellbeing of the family where the children come from play a huge role in ensuring a child’s performance and productivity. Therefore, providing the necessary support to care for the families of these children is of utmost importance. Ensuring that there is food on the table for every meal is paramount.

The recent Covid 19 pandemic has laid bare very serious issues. Many of the adults in B40 areas are daily wage earners and their livelihood has been drastically affected.

Good Governance

Built upon a framework for a high-performing organization that exhibits transparency, accountability, responsibility, we aim to unlock new opportunities in the coming years to improve performance, productivity and become sustainable.

With the adaption of good governance within the foundation, we are able to anticipate, prevent and adapt to risks that may threaten our ability to fulfill our social obligations effectively and with responsibility and compassion. Moving forward, TARA Foundation aims to develop into a world class organisation with a high degree of governance, talent, integrity and transparency.

Outreach

We aspire to provide essential supports to people at large in the B40 areas to enable them to get a good education, food, shelter, jobs, business and general wellbeing. Through our outreach programs, we do welfare intervention, medical aid, sports activities, team building, camping, general talks, visits to Universities for children and a host of other activities.
