Despite the enormous success, Dato’ Vijay Eswaran is a philanthropist at heart and always makes it a point to contribute back to society through various Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs via the RYTHM Foundation. Some of the CSR projects have included providing aid to flood victims in Pakistan, providing communication equipment to Haitian rebuilding efforts and raising money for autistic children in Hong Kong via the Rainbow Project.
