Teach For Malaysia


Since 2012, the 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 provides annual sponsorship to assist TFM in achieving its mission to reduce the gap between rural and urban schools.



In 2012, Jeffrey Cheah Foundation and Sunway Group collaborated with G.O.L.D (Generating Opportunities for the Learning Disabled) with the pledge of RM100,000 to fund and develop an ongoing social enterprise business model for the learning disabled. With the collaboration, Sunway University’s Sunway Institute for Social Entrepreneurship (SISE), on behalf of the Foundation, assists the Hearts of G.O.L.D project to develop programmes and business plans which will equip special-need youths with skills that will sustain them through life.
