About Us

EWRF was formed in 1979 to improve the social, educational and economic welfare of the marginalized Malaysian Indians, particularly students from poor homes. In the initial years, our activities were directed more towards average and high achieving students, with the objective of improving their academic results to enable them to fill up the allotted places in local public universities.

Numerous social problems along with academic underachievement is hampering the development and growth of the Indian community. Dropout rate in schools have risen in correlation with the rise in juvenile and criminal activities. Poverty and the sub-culture of poverty have been identified as the key reason. Therefore EWRF has decided to re-align its focus. Our programmes are now contemporary designed to address the social behavior and education level of these underachievers. Over the years EWRF’s initiatives have benefited thousands of people from the community particularly students. in 2016, as many as 10,000 students from 220 school participated in our programs.

At present EWRF has 16 branches nationwide and 4 more informative stage.  with more than 3000 members and volunteers nationwide.

Our History & Solution

The Educational, Welfare and Research Foundation (EWRF) was established by a group of Indian professionals from the field of education, civil service and commerce back in 1979. At present, it has 23 branches throughout the country. Over the years EWRF has worked at micro and macro levels to improve the social, educational and economic welfare of the often marginalised Indian population in Malaysia. However, recent alarmingly high incidence of crimes committed by Indian youths in Malaysia has made EWRF review its focus. School dropout rates have risen with corresponding rise in juvenile and criminal activities. Poverty and the sub-culture of poverty are identified as the key reasons. Our programs today are designed to address the social behaviour and education levels of the underachievers.

The Educational, Welfare and Research Foundation (EWRF) is aware of this issue and has decided to align its activities to address it at its early stage. All EWRF programmes are designed to either prevent the dropout phenomenon or intervene to reduce problems that might contribute towards the situation. It is believed that by reducing the dropout rate, the crime rate at the national level could be reduced as well.
