The foundations will support researchers to do studies that matters to the local contexts and also informative to the wider international readers.

Many studies from the middle and eastern Asian countries have been turned back and put down from being presented in international venues due to the claimed it low relevance and importance. However, this judgment was made based on the contexts of the other countries, which house majority of the research support institutions. This has resulted in suppressing research of local and contextual importance and priority.
