As part of their developing partnership, TechSoup Asia and SOLS 24/7 have started an outreach program to Malaysian NGOs. The goal is to promote awareness of the TechSoup Asia programs in Malaysia, and to assist NGOs to realize the benefits.
TechSoup provides high quality, legal software to NGOs for a nominal administrative fee. To date, it has served over 150,000 NGOs worldwide and saved the sector more than USD$2 Billion. SOLS 24/7 will translate program information into Malay and also contact NGOs directly by email and phone. Mike Yeaton, Vice President of TechSoup Asia says “SOLS 24/7 is a great organization transforming the lives of youth in Malaysia and throughout the region. We are excited about this new stage in our partnership, and about working together to help NGOs improve their operations through the effective use of technology.” Adds Raj Ridvan Singh, co-founder and International Director of SOLS 24/7: "We are thrilled to be collaborating with such a great organization and Non-profit ICT Enabler. We believe through TechSoup Asia now localized in Malaysia, many NGO's and Non-profits can maximize their impact as they will now have access to the donated software and other resources."
