Projects for Happiness is an initiative by Khind Starfish Foundation for all undergraduates in Malaysia to design grassroots projects since the year 2014 – anywhere in Malaysia – which promotes happiness and addresses the root cause of poverty and poor education.
We encourage applicants to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on Education, Helping Underprivileged Community, Arts & Culture, Environmental Protection, Animal Welfare, and Racial Harmony. Through submission by universities and colleges in Malaysia, projects will be selected for funding at a maximum of RM10,000.00 each.
We hope to encourage student initiative, innovation, and entrepreneurship by finding creative ways of helping to uplift the lives of those who are socioeconomically challenged through sustainable community initiatives. The overall program is intended to be nationwide in scope and impact. We believe that youth, leaders of today, ought to be challenged to ‘think about giving back to society’ in their own way.
