Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran featured in The Nation newspaper

The world cannot get enough of Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran.

Yesterday, November 4, 2012, our beloved mentor was featured in the newspaper The Nation. In an article titled “Sustainable CSR for foreign direct investors”, Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran was mentioned heavily as a great example of corporate social responsibility and charity work. Quoted below is the part of the article that mentions Dato’ Sri Vijay:

Amongst this handful who have already joined hands with this task, a businessman who is worth a mention is Vijay Eswaran, the Executive chairman of Hong Kong based conglomerate, the QI Group and a significant investor in Sri Lanka. According to the book “Top 25 Indian Luminaries” written by Dr. Anand Raj Giri, his global business enterprise spans 160 countries.

While he has a strong connect to India, Vijay Eswaran is also a Tamil whose roots are planted in the red soil of Jaffna through his grandfather who was a Sri Lankan Tamil. Three generations ago, his family migrated from Jaffna to Malaysia and Eswaran was born in Penang, Malaysia. As a businessman, his beginnings were rather humble, although he gradually became a force to reckon with, evolving into a prominent business leader in Asia. A significant action on his part is the establishment of the RYTHM foundation, the CSR arm of the QI Group.

Through RYTHM, he has made a difference in many parts of the world by initiating sustainable projects for education, community development, promotion of arts and culture and environment protection, which earned him a place in Forbes Asia’s philanthropy list last year. He has also been involved in several projects in Sri Lanka, particularly in Seenigama and some villages in the deep south of the country for Tsunami rehabilitation. It is understood that the foundation has also shown interest in launching development projects in the North in the near future. Eswaran is also known as an advocate of social enterprise as an effective way of giving back to society without it being charity.

Just last year his foundation established a school in Malaysia for children with disabilities and special education needs, and paid the lion share of its students’ fees, since Malaysia has weak laws regarding education for children with disabilities, and the public schools often fall short in this area.

On this occasion, let us take a moment to remember this great soul and the message that his life stood for. Please spend a few minutes and re-visit the corporate video we have specially produced to showcase the life of Gandhi and his teachings that continue to inspire us.

QNET’s Ramadan bags convoy feeds thousands across Egypt

QNET continues its great CSR activities to emphasize the group’s philosophy – Raise Yourself to Help Mankind – and to reflect the company’s commitment to help all segments of society.

Earlier this month QNET launched a two-day national feeding program called The Ramadan Bags Convoy for several thousands people in Egypt, in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan.

This initiative was aimed to provide food for the underprivileged to the break their fast. Bags of food have been distributed across the country reaching places such as Benysweif, Qaluobia and Cairo. A team of 50 QNET’s Independent Representatives (IRs) also kindly volunteered to take part in the activity of distribution to ensure the bags reached around 500 families.

The Ramadan Bags Convoy program includes activities tailored to suit Egyptian society. “One of our long-term priorities is to launch more charitable programs so that we can reach more people that need assistance.” QNET also called upon other companies to launch their own projects in order to contribute to the Egyptian people during these difficult times. “This would help to close the gap between different social classes,” QNET statement says.
