What is Swetects

Swetects is an illustrative and graphic designing platform - offering a wide range of services, including but not limited to designs of greeting cards, posters, logos, artwork and party invitations, illustrations and caricatures. Swetects was always envisioned with a greater goal in mind - to be able to give back to the community that needs it the most. 

With every purchase made, a large portion of the profits will go towards sponsoring internet packs for children in low income families in Malaysia through the Dignity for Children Foundation - that provides accessible distance learning initiatives for the underprivileged. 

Every child should have the right to obtain an education that is fair and accessible, irrespective of their financial and social background. 

The nature of the situation that we, as Malaysians are currently in however - with multiple nationwide lockdowns and a severe lack in providing economic benefits for struggling B40 families - has resulted in multiple underprivileged families being forced to pull their children out of schools as they lack the ability to provide a stable internet connection and a functioning laptop for one of their many kids. The onset result of this pandemic will not only jeopardise their future but will also create an unprecedented divide between the future leaders of our community.
