Kuala Lumpur, the bustling national capital of Malaysia, and one of the most dynamic cities in the region.

Kuala Lumpur was a natural destination for WGI as we continued to grow our presence in Southeast Asia. Our Kuala Lumpur affiliate offers us the opportunity to champion the power of literacy in one of Asia’s most exciting cities.

WGI Kuala Lumpur has committed itself to supporting low-income children in the country. Through our Read & Rice program, we are supporting this target demographic through local partnerships. WGI Malaysia recently completed a partnership with Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK), where we supported local children with our program.

As we grow our partnership with YCK, we have also committed to supporting a community of children in Petaling Jaya. This commitment will see these children benefit from free classes and food via our Read and Rice program. 

WGI Kuala Lumpur is chaired by Malisse Tan, and is led by the pictured board members.
