The Khind Starfish Foundation is inviting applications for Projects for Happiness that is an initiative for all undergraduates in Malaysia to design grassroots projects – anywhere in Malaysia – which promote happiness and address the root cause of poverty and poor education.
They encourage applicants to employ innovative techniques and creativity to engage participants in ways that focus on education, helping the underprivileged, arts & culture, environmental protection, animal welfare, and racial harmony.
They want to encourage nationwide sustainable community initiatives by finding creative ways to help uplift the lives of those who are socioeconomically challenged. They believe that we all, everyone, in their own way should give back to society.
