Ampang's Green Revolution - Yellow House KL's Community Farm Initiative

Poverty Alleviation
This article features :

Yellow House, founded in 2011, has been steadfast in its mission to uplift the most vulnerable in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, including the homeless, the urban poor, and the refugee community. Through a commitment to sustainability, Yellow House equips individuals with the tools for long-term empowerment and independence, guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In essence, they teach resilience.

The pandemic, extending beyond a health crisis, has left a significant economic strain, particularly on the vulnerable B40 community. Recognising the challenges as opportunities, Yellow House shifted its focus to farming to ensure the sustenance of its beneficiaries. However, this initiative goes beyond providing immediate aid; it is a commitment to empower families through sustainable farming practices, promoting employment, and fostering self-sufficiency.


Yellow House's approach not only secures a controlled food supply for families but also generates additional income sources. The Community Farm is a testament to their dedication to uplifting the quality of life for the underprivileged by providing them with the tools and knowledge needed for sustainable agriculture.

Shyam Priah, CEO/Founder of Yellow House, expresses gratitude for the support from HEINEKEN Cares: "Thank you to HEINEKEN Cares for your unwavering commitment to social responsibility and your belief in the transformative power of our project. Your generous support aligns with our shared vision of promoting sustainable agriculture as an alternative sustainable livelihood, fostering food security, and enhancing environmental stewardship."


This project embodies a holistic approach, aiming to create not only a sustainable food source but also a foundation for long-term resilience. The benefits extend beyond the farm, reaching individuals and communities, promoting sustainable agriculture, food security, and environmental well-being.

You can be part of this transformative initiative by contributing to the Yellow House KL Community Farm through the HEINEKEN Cares Programme. Every donation has the power of amplification, as HEINEKEN Cares matches your contribution with a 4:1 ratio, adding RM40 for every RM10 donated. Your generosity will directly impact the lives of individuals and communities, promoting sustainable practices and fostering a brighter, more resilient future.

This festive season, let's join hands to cultivate hope, empower communities, and sow the seeds of positive change. Be a part of Yellow House KL's mission to make a lasting impact on the lives of the underprivileged. Cheers to Giving Back – Donate Now!
