Vijayaratnam Award - RYTHM Foundation

Vijayaratnam Saravanamuthu (1934 – 2011) dedicated his life to the service of others from a young age. First, as the founder of a prominent youth organisation in Malaysia that advocated for the empowerment of youth from minority communities and later through his extensive philanthropic work through several organisations including the Divine Life Society.

It was this example that inspired his son, Vijay Eswaran, the Executive Chairman of the QI Group of Companies to establish the Vijayaratnam Award to recognise exemplary individuals and organisations who are working towards making a positive social impact at the grassroots level in their communities.

The aim of the Vijayaratnam Award is to carry forward the legacy of late Mr.Vijayaratnam, whose selfless service inspired an entire generation of young people to live their life in service of others.
