Time to Give Back: Children's Protection Society

Continuation from the previous post , here we come to the second home which is The Children's Protection Society. It 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.

The objectives of CPS are both immediate and longer-term. The immediate one is to provide children at risk with a safe, supportive and conducive environment. At the same time, CPS aims to work with parents and other family members, so that the child can eventually reunited with his/her family. 

Token of appreciation to YB Tuan Phee Boon Poh for joining us in our children home visit. His speech was indeed an inspiring one :)

Well, wonder how you could help them? Here are some ways you could look into:

1. Become a Volunteer:

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).

2. Sponsor-A-Child Program: 

Talk to any of our staff if you are interested to sponsor a child.

3. Donation

If you want to make a financial donation, please send cheques (payable to Children’s Protection Society Pulau Pinang) to CPS at 118-A Jalan Scotland, 10450 Penang. CPS is a registered charity home with the Welfare Department so donations will be tax-exempt.

4. Sponsoring an Activity or Outing:

CPS organizes many activities for the children, staff and volunteers. We welcome sponsorship of specific activities. Give us a call if you have any ideas of your own, or would like to hear from us on what sort of activities you could sponsor.
