At Berjaya Corporation group of companies, we believe in striking a balance between profitability
and our social responsibility to the communities in which we operate.
By the nature of our businesses, Berjaya companies come into contact with the lives of many in the community on a daily basis. To inculcate the spirit of caring and sharing, Berjaya has always encouraged its staff to share their skills and talents in service of others by contributing their time and energy voluntarily towards the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
Charity projects, fund-raising events and donations have been an on-going aspect of operations as a social commitment.
BCF was set up to create a more synergistic effort in the corporate social responsibility initiatives of the various subsidiaries within the Berjaya Corporation group of companies. Among the Foundation’s core focus areas are supporting educational programmes and initiatives for underprivileged children and youth, outreach programmes for poor communities, providing aid to health related causes, conserving and protecting the environment, supporting Malaysian performing arts and culture, animal related causes, promoting staff well-being and providing international humanitarian aid.
Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Vincent Tan’s (“TSVT”) personal foundation, BMF supports various community and charitable causes which include educational programmes, medical and health causes and humanitarian aid.
One of TSVT’s bigger projects in education is to help improve the standard of English in Malaysia, recognising that English is important in communications and the business world. TSVT is presently working with a non-governmental organization to set up community learning centres in several parts of Malaysia to offer free education and soft skills training, with an emphasis on the English language, to underprivileged communities.
Besides providing financial aid to health related causes such as treatment of diseases like kidney ailments, cancer and AIDS, TSVT has also set up a free acupuncture centre serving the underprivileged community and is funding two haemodialysis centres to subsidize poor kidney patients.
