As part of our CSR efforts, Harta Intan has undertaken to be a sponsor of the ESTEEM (Engaging Science, Technology, Engineering, English and Maths) programme offered by Penang Youth Development Corporation. This community service project, launched in January 2015, currently offers science and English classes to school children at the Karpal Singh Penang Learning Centre in Gelugor. Harta Intan, working via Livingston House of Language, offers English classes (Std 1-6) whilst Penang Science Cluster (PSC) handles the science and maths classes. The classes are presently only on Saturdays from 2pm to 6pm.
Harta Intan Group of Companies teamed up with Penang CARE and World Vision Malaysia to put together a Charity Concert once again after being strongly encouraged by the success of the previous Symphony of Hearts concert in 2009. A total of half a million ringgit was raised and distributed between six beneficiaries: Penang CARE, World Vision Malaysia, Buddhist Tzu-Chi Merits Society Malaysia, LifeBridge Learning Centre (Perai, Penang), Harvest Centre (Sentul, KL) and the GA Centre (Rawang, KL).
Following the success of our 2011 charity concert, we organised the third Symphony of Hearts in 2015. In support of Penang CARE and World Vision Malaysia, the night featured multiple Malaysian favourites like Harith Iskander, Salamiah Hassan and her daughter Atilia Haron, Juwita Suwito, Francissca Peter, and Loo Yise to name a few.
In 2018, we held Symphony of Hearts IV in aid of Penang Hospice Building Fund, where 100% of the night’s proceeds were directed to. The musical evening that was hosted by local funnyman Dr Jason Leong featured Malaysian powerhouse singers, Juwita Suwito, Adibah Noor, local acts like VS Duo that featured Tan Sri Dato’ Dr Sak Cheng Lum, Wild Ginger and Dato’ Jet. Singaporean comedian/actor Gurmit Singh was also one of the highlights of the night as he charmed the audience through laugh and songs.
