Grateful for the Opportunities

Over the years, Aloka Foundation has organised and facilitated numerous activities and projects that have benefited many.

Aloka Foundation has initiated working groups such as Open Arms to extend hospitality services to visitors and friends, and Good Heart to provide compassionate care and spiritual support, particularly to the elders and those in need.

To promote the planting of herbs and to generate greater awareness on their medicinal values, Aloka Foundation started the Green Thumb working group which also cultivated vegetables and crops for healthy diets and nourishments.

In preparing the community physically, psychologically, and spiritually in facing and managing crises, Aloka Foundation formed the Aloka Emergency Readiness Team (ALERT). Medical camps were also conducted between 2010 and 2011 to benefit residents in the interiors of Sabah.

In addition, Aloka Foundation initiated efforts to provide holistic education in developing peace loving, well-rounded, and confident individuals.  

These working groups, projects, and activities have evolved into various forms and organisations over the years. Members of Good Heart, for example, have teamed up with members of Buddhist Missionary Society Malaysia to establish Suvarnamitra, an independent organisation registered under the Registrar of Societies.
