Penang Shan Children’s Home (PSCH) began as a dream and initiative of Dr. S Balakrishnan in the year 2005. This is a non-religious and a non-profit, non-governmental organization catering to the needs of orphans, neglected children, dysfunctional families and single parents. The home was built and officially launched on 14th December 2008 by Madam Chan Siew Har.

PSHA03

PSCH’s mission is to maximize the attractive opportunities that are stored in the children; to make something happen; to change the ways that things are and to create something that no one else has ever created before for the children, to explore for opportunities; to provide guidance and course correction; maintaining focus on being consistent and persistent. The objectives are both short and on a long term basis. The short term objective is to provide all the children with a safe and supportive environment. The focus will be on the development of physical, mental, emotional, educational, social and recreational skills that will create awareness to structure and mould the child’s future. The longer term development includes the options that are available for the child’s future, supporting them to complete the tertiary education preferably to University level. For those who are unable to complete the basic education, they would be trained in developing their skills by educating them in skill training centers. Through home visits and working with parents, they would like to ensure that eventually the child is reunited with his/her family thus becoming the backbone of the family.

The Children’s Protection Society (CPS) began as an initiative of Dato’ Nazir Ariff when he was President of the Rotary Club in Penang (1991). It is a non-profit, non-governmental organization catering to the needs of neglected and/or abandoned children in Penang. It was officially launched in April 1992 by Puan Sri Chua Kah Peng.

CPS03

The objectives of CPS are both immediate and longer-term. The immediate objective is to provide children at risk with a safe, supportive and conducive environment (Shelter). Their concerned and focused areas include the emotional and physical development, education, social and recreational skills. At the same time, CPS aims to work with parents and other family members, so that the child can eventually be reunited with his/her family.

CPS04

In the pipeline, they hope to support projects to enhance community-based facilities for childcare and development in areas where such facilities are lacking. They also try to promote a more general awareness of the issues relating to children at risk by being involved in training and discussions. Hence they work together with various government and non-government organizations to help to develop longer-term strategies and goals.

HOW COMPASSIONATE ARE YOU?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When was the last time you actually donated something for a worthy cause, whether it is in monetary forms or in kinds? If it has been ages, then you should start considering doing your bit in helping those in need out there. There are many non-profit organizations out there which require your donations, mostly in monetary forms. But I have come across one organization with a unique concept of donation. You can donate in kinds and yet still get full legal IRS tax deduction.

Have you heard about the angelic organization who called themselves the Car Angel Ministries (www.carangel.com)? Not only can you donate car, you can even donate boat, truck, trailer, RV, tractor, motorcycle or plane which you no longer utilize them. They will arrange for the sales of your donated items and generate the funds to either your preferred beneficiary or their own which includes helping out single mothers, orphans, homeless, teen and adult rehab, as well as prison reform.

One of their current projects is to create animated children’s DVDs, anti-drug movies and prison literature to be distributed free in the USA to create the awareness on rightful living values. Don’t you feel great that just by donating one item and you can help thousands of lives? Maybe you would like to watch their YouTube clips on how wonderful their movies are.
