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 “Musical Kaleidoscope: From Bach to Yiruma”, “A Celebration of Music: Butterfly Lovers and Love Songs” and “Mozart on Silk Road”, featuring the International Ensemble of Perak Society of Performing Arts, sharing the beauty and discipline of music with a wider audience outside the confines of the university.
