One of the charities the foundation supports is Soka Gakkai Malaysia, with which the foundation collaborated on the “SMART Partnership” for seven years. Students from less privileged backgrounds were given bursaries, books and food subsidies. The programme aided more than 10,000 needy students since its inception in 2007. This SMART Partnership was so successful that Soka Gakkai (Johor) clinched the State and District-level award for its community services in 2011, propelling it to garner stronger partnerships and funding support in Malaysia.

Currently, Soka Gakkai (Johor) is working on a handbook detailing the good practices of their “SMART Partnership” programme, which can be learnt and replicated by other charities in Malaysia.
