Next visit home after the Ramakrishna Ashrama is the Children’s Protection Society.
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). 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. 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.
A few method to help the Children’s Protection Society:
Learning and Tuition is always needed - many of our children have missed a substantial
amount of school due to their backgrounds, and often find it difficult to catch up with school
work. If you are prepared for the extra challenges which many of our children face, and are
prepared to commit a regular time a week (can be anything from an hour up).
