Help Children In Malaysia Escape Poverty Trap

We provide monthly cash assistance to ensure healthy food, purposeful education and nurturing happiness. 

Close to two million children in Malaysia are living in poverty.

Poor living conditions of our children today are a reflection of
our nation’s future.


1 out of 5 children in Malaysia are stunted. Their cognitive and physical development are impaired.

Poor growth can lead to poor brain development. Young children who suffer from stunting may never be able to gain full cognitive capabilities as the connections between the brain cells are disrupted.


By 2035, more than 20% of Malaysians are among those mentally and physically ill while being trapped in multidimensional poverty.

If we don’t stop the poverty trap in these families, they will continue to live poorly, producing malnourished citizens for generations.

This can be detrimental to our nation’s growth, economy and stability. ARBA is committed to stop the poverty trap for these families within one generation.


Real change
takes time.

Customised long term
solutions are the way forward.

Our mission is to empower children to escape poverty through the whole family approach.

We do this by having a long-term commitment to the families we work with. We measure the impact through data collection, analysis and monthly progress evaluations.

Working with our collaborators, we design and execute interventions according to the multidimensional poverty framework, focusing primarily on health, education and well-being.

Step 1

Research & Data

Every problem must be proven by scientific research and meaningful data. This is to ensure we work on the right and the real problem.

Step 2

Follow Through

We establish long term, direct and close relationships with the families, tracking their progress monthly via online and home visits.

Step 3

Measuring Impact

Our regular assessment of the projects, helps us measure the impact being made. This way our work is improved progressively.
