Every young person, regardless of his or her origins and circumstances can excel in his or her life if the limitations he or she faces are removed.
With this ambitious thought, Optima Foundation (Poverty Relief) was established in August 1996 by (late) Miss Valli Luschwitz and Dr Thomas Jeyendran supported by many well-wishers and supporters.
Every Penny collected (100%) is to be spent on the under privileged children, while the administrative costs are covered by the members, well-wishers and supporters.
Since the beginning, Optima Foundation has carried out many activities to enhance the quality of life among underprivileged children around the world. While providing the short term support in terms of food, clothing, and educational needs such as books and stationery, Optima Foundation has been mindful of the medium to long term needs of the children.
Therefore, Optima Foundation had initiated many developmental activities to include study skills, learning skills, and life skills. These activities take place in the children’s homes and children’s development centres.
While funds are needed to support the children’s needs, Optima Foundation also relies on volunteers for the knowledge transfer activities. Hence, Optima Foundation has worked independently and jointly with individuals and other organisations to relieve poverty among children.
Since the beginning, Optima Foundation has supported more than 10,000 children in countries such as Bosnia, Isle of Man, Romania, Sri Lanka, UK, and Ukraine.
We are marching on!
Enabling children to excel by disabling their limitations!
