Who are we

The Agape Family Home started operations in October 1989 with two children. Today, they have 20 to  25 children (six to 17 years of age.) Agape believes that care of children is of utmost importance and Agape Family Home provides for abandoned, neglected and abused children and also for orphans. They believe in operating like a private home instead of an institution to give the children who are residing at the Home a “family-like” environment.

Our services

1) The Agape Family Home is planning to reopen the Girl’s Home (which was closed a few years ago due to the shortage of manpower and resources). The Girl’s Home will cater for those under 12 years old (during admission) but the Home will consider delinquent girls under 15 years for admission – strictly based on the interview assessment.) The premises for the Girl’s Home just started renovations on in 2005. It has been calculated that the total renovation cost will amount to RM 100,000. So far, the Home has managed to pay RM30,000.

The current renovation of the old Girl’s Home will include:
a) the addition of 6 extra bathrooms
b) the extension of the existing kitchen
c) the addition of 3 rooms
d) the rewiring of the whole Girl’s Home with the addition of power points
e) the retiling of the roof
f) the repainting of the entire Home and new fencing for the premises.
But the home is facing staff shortage and have been unable to go ahead with the reopening of this home.

2) Currently, the Agape Family Home is renting their current Home. They would like to purchase a piece of land to build a new Boy’s Home. They have been offered to buy a piece of bungalow land ( 11,000 sq. ft) with double storey building for RM 300,000.
Estimated Monthly Expenditure:     Approximately RM18,000

Our needs

The home needs volunteers as tuition teachers or home school teachers and a van driver. The Home would appreciate if organisations would volunteer to help them raise funds for the purchase of the Boy’s Home. (RM 300,000).

Donations – in cash.

a) The home needs to raise RM 70,000 to cover the renovation costs for the new Girl’s Home.
b) They need to raise an additional RM 300,000 to purchase the land

They need new staff especially for the Girl’s Home and a driver to transport the children to and from the school and also to attend to the daily errands. Staff salaries also need to be provided.
