Community Outreach Programmes

Teach for Malaysia

Jeffrey Cheah Foundation partners with Teach for Malaysia (TFM), an independent, not-for-profit organisation, that enlists Malaysia’s most promising future leaders in their mission to end education inequity. The Foundation has sponsored RM150,000 annually since 2012 to assist the organisation in achieving its mission to reduce the gap between rural and urban schools.

English Language Development Programme

To improve English proficiency, the Foundation supports the Sunway English Language Development Programme which was introduced to address the challenges of learning English in the national school curriculum and to instill confidence among students to converse in English. The programme consists of an annual English Tutorial Programme, English Public Speaking Competition and the Sunway-Oxbridge Essay Competition at national level.

Music and the Arts

The Foundation believes that music and arts have strong links to education as they enrich and nurture lives. Contributing towards the development of individuals, the Foundation has sponsored and hosted charity recitals including “Choral Serenade to Music” featuring Choir of Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge with Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, “A Musical Kaleidoscope: From Bach to Yiruma”, “A Celebration of Music: Butterfly Lovers and Love Songs”, and “Mozart on Silk Road”, featuring the Perak Society of Performing Arts International Ensemble, sharing the beauty and discipline of music with a wider audience outside the confines of the university. In 2018, Jeffrey Cheah Foundation Trustee and Sunway Group Executive Deputy Chairman Tan Sri Datuk Seri Razman M. Hashim, sang together with The Big Jazz Band of Lewis Pragasam and Professor Don Bowyer as well as The Seasons 4 for JCF charity benefit in aid of MERCY Malaysia’s mission to Palu, Sulawesi.
