History

Founded in 2000 by Teacher Raj Ridvan Singh, his father and his brother, SOLS 24/7 began in Cambodia and quickly grew into one of the largest non-formal education providers in the country at that time. This represents the beginning of the non-governmental organization’s revolutionary education system and mission to provide service to humanity.

Following the success in Cambodia, Teacher Raj traveled to Timor Leste in 2005 to set up SOLS 24/7 Timor Leste in a period of heightened civil unrest. His team was forced to evacuate the country, but returned in 2006 to open the first main training center in Dili. SOLS 24/7 Timor Leste became the largest non-formal education providers in the country.

SOLS 24/7 Malaysia was set up by Teacher Raj and began operations in 2007 in his hometown of Malacca before moving its first Youth Development Centre and Headquarters to Kuala Lumpur in 2012. In 2014, Teacher Raj was the only remaining founder in SOLS 24/7. There are now  SOLS 24/7 training centres and programs throughout Malaysia with SOLS 24/7 offices in Jakarta and San Francisco.

The vision is to bring SOLS 24/7 programs and services to countries throughout the world.
