At YCF, we believe that every student deserves an opportunity to succeed.
We focus on providing grants to educational institutions that promote the study of vernacular languages and scholarships to deserving Malaysian students of all races pursuing studies in Mandarin-based schools
The Yu Cai Foundation is committed to supporting the multilingual and multicultural facets of the Malaysian education system. We believe it is advantageous for the country to cultivate talent with multilingual capabilities across diverse backgrounds to provide them with a competitive edge on a global scale. In addition, vernacular languages help to preserve our unique cultural heritage.
Education is the basic foundation that shapes our lives and talent must be nurtured to give the students an opportunity to uplift succeed. For the next generation to flourish, our children need to be equipped with knowledge, skills, qualifications and confidence. As such, we are committed to improving education and making opportunities accessible.
The YCF logo encapsulates our aims- it originates from the Chinese character “人” (or “person” in English) and the Chinese proverb “it takes 10 years to grow a tree but 100 years to nurture a person
YCF is merely a conduit, facilitating these opportunities, which will enable the recipients of our scholarships and grants, as well as educational institutions to excel. With the assistance provided, they can embrace opportunities and make a positive difference.
