TOUCHING A BILLION HEARTS…
At the heart of QNET lies a strong purpose. Employees and Independent Representatives know we are bound together by the concept of RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind.
Our founders have always advocated the need to work towards a goal beyond financial success. They believe that money is primarily a tool that must be used to raise peoples’ lives and make a lasting impact. These ideals have grown to become the lifeblood of the RYTHM Foundation and its Malaysian chapter, the Vijayaratnam Foundation. Both Foundations serve as the implementing partners for QNET’s philanthropic initiatives.
All our projects are anchored to three pillars:
- Children with Special Needs
- Community Development
- Community Wellbeing
QNET works closely with RYTHM Foundation on a number of projects in developing countries to make a difference in the communities in which we operate. QNET believes in not just writing a cheque but getting involved and working towards sustainable change.
Key Initiatives & Partnerships
Employees and Independent Representatives of QNET contribute generously to Taarana, a school for children with special needs that was established by the Vijayaratnam Foundation in Malaysia.
Taarana, which means "awakening" in Sanskrit, is the only one of its kind in Malaysia offering tailor made programmes and educational facilities for young children between the ages of three and 15, who face different types of development delay disorders.
In early 2014, QNET sponsored a cultural exchange programme for a group of young students from Rashid Centre to Malaysia, where they were hosted by the children of of Taraana, a school for children with special needs, funded and managed by the Vijayaratnam Foundation.
QNET, through RYTHM Foundation, supports Narayanan Krishnan, one of CNN’s top ten heroes in 2010, for his tireless efforts in providing shelter, food and care for the helpless, homeless, sick, elderly, mentally-ill and destitute in-and-around Madurai in Tamil Nadu (India).
Uspenskoye Residential School, Russia
In Russia, children with disabilities still face discrimination from their own families and have physical barriers to education, employment and participation in recreational and community activities.
In hope of building a brighter future for these children and providing them with more opportunities, QNET through RYTHM Foundation joined arms with Uspenskoye Residential School of the Slobodskoy district in the Kirov region, which is the municipal government’s special (correctional) general education facility for children with disabilities. With our support, the school is currently building a fully equipped playground, complete with sports and exercise equipment for their 72 students.
