To ensure we are making the change we wish to see, we strive to formulate more well-informed policies and more effective initiatives through knowledge sharing and rigorous research.
Hasanah believes in a bottom-up approach, working closely with development practitioners and policymakers to ensure all our interventions for marginalised communities are needs-based.
Knowledge can have a transformational impact only if it’s plugged in. That is, people know what there is to be known, can find out when they need it, can understand it, and, be convinced that this knowledge should be put to use and be acted upon. This creates the cycle of learning, which further strengthens institutions, systems, and capacities of individuals.
We achieve this by engaging with our grant partners and stakeholders in documenting, learning, and sharing evidence through our on-ground projects. Knowledge sharing forms the foundation of creating the positive change our communities need.
In addition, we support world-class research addressing Malaysia’s most pressing issues through our research arm, Khazanah Research Institute (KRI). KRI shares data and information that help our policymakers develop sound policies and plans that are grounded in evidence and thus, more effective.
