VIVA City Global was established by Mr Jerryson Abraham G. Doss alongside with his wife, Ms Edna Sung Burongoh. The idea of VIVA City Global was his dream since young and he is determined to make it a reality.


Mr Jerryson grew up in a small fishing village with limited resources. With his life experiences of humble beginning and his inspiration to make a difference in other people's life, he pursued this dream diligently thus gave birth to the creation of this VIVA Starfish Project. The aim of VIVA Starfish Project is to help people in need to break away from poverty.


The inspiration and the name came from this prominent story called, “The Starfish Story” that goes like this;


A young boy was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When he came to each starfish, he would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched him with amusement.


He had been doing this for some time when a man approached him and said, “Little boy, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”


The boy seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, he bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he looked up at the man and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”


The old man looked at the boy inquisitively and thought about what he had done. Inspired, he joined the little boy in throwing starfish back into the sea. Soon others joined, and all the starfish were saved.

There are other on-going small scale projects. We would like to expand our activities to reach the unreached, hence, this funding will go towards these three main projects:


Project #1: JomBaca ( Lets Read) Program for Orang Asli (Indigenous Tribe) Children And Underprivileged Children To Read


Viva Quick Read 20 Program is a program specially designed to teach students who are unable to read, write and speak in 20 days.


Our aim for 2017 is to educate 1000 children in Malaysia whom are 100% illiterate and basically have not had the chance to go to school which includes indigenous tribe of the land.


Project #2: Accommodation & Self-reliant Livelihood For The Homeless


We recruit special crowd from the street and provide them with accommodation, job placement and training. Once they become self dependent, we will empower those individuals to reach out to the community.


Project #3: Accommodation & Self-reliant Livelihood For The Refugees


We reach out to the underpriveledged refugees in the country and provide them with accommodation, job placement and training. It is our hope that they will reciprocate the care that they receive here to their fellow countrymen.

One of our main focus is educating the children as the children are the leaders of tomorrow and education is vital for survival.


Based on our research and assessment while being with the communities, it is estimated that 7 out of 10 children do not receive basic education at all.


Due to poverty and constant struggle for survival, parents and guardians could not afford to send their children to school. Hence by creating an environment that supports both parents and children and to take them out completely from that cycle of poverty, we believe the vision of providing free education will materialise.


Viva City Global is a conglomerate of businesses that is able to cater to all level of employment. The most important impact of this good works is to be able to lift-up a helpless person to be self dependent. By being self dependent, the person is able to restore their dignity and self worth. Ultimately, it will create a sense of responsibility to each of their family members and others in return.
