Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas (DHRRA) Malaysia is a voluntary non-profit and non-political organization registered in 2006 under the Societies Act of Malaysia 1966. Our journey of building better communities began with the formation of MasDHRRA as an affiliate of Asia-DHRRA in 1974. The journey continued with the establishment of DHRRA Network Malaysia (1999-2005), which focused on building a strong and self-reliant rural community through poverty alleviation and people’s empowerment initiatives. Guided by the vision of vulnerable communities who are self-reliant and empowered to exercise their individual and collective rights, DHRRA Malaysia, as we are known now, took over the lead in continuing the community development initiative in 2006 and have since initiated numerous programs with the communities, especially women and youths in rural areas, to support greater self-sufficiency and economic sustainability.
Over the years, apart from addressing social needs and self-reliance of rural communities DHRRA Malaysia has also included to contribute towards larger goal of poverty eradication within the nation among vulnerable persons. DHRRA Malaysia aims to ensure sustained improvement of the quality of life of the vulnerable population through various combinations of efforts geared to the uplift the communities we work with. In short, we provide social protection of varied stages for community members who are in need. We believe a nation’s progress depends profoundly on the knowledge, skills and competencies of its people.
