Who are we

The Children’s Protection Society is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation, catering to the needs of neglected and abandoned children. It was officially launched in April 1992 by Puan Sri Chui Kah Peng.

Our objectives

The immediate objective of the Society is to provide the children at risk, a safe and homely environment. They focus on the emotional and physical development of each individual child, together with the enhancement of their educational, social and recreational skills. In the long term, they hope to develop alternative option for each child’s future.

The children in CPS come from broken homes, cases of abandoned orphans, some due to illness and poverty. At the moment there are eight boys, between the ages of four and 13 years. And 23 girls between the ages of five and 17 years.

The shelter is run by a team of five full-time and five part-time social workers. Volunteers also assist us in the form of tuition and recreational activities. The staff also undertakes home visits which is necessary to develop contact, and understanding, of the children’s original home background, and to provide them with the necessary support.

Many of their children have not been regular school-goers, and most of them are academically weak. With the assistance of the State Education Department, all the children have been re-admitted into schools.

Our services

  • Working with families of children in the Shelter.
  • Continuing to provide support to those who have left the Shelter.
  • Running a Learning Centre on the mainland for children in a deprived area.
  • Providing opportunities for training and / or work placement for older children, including with Montfort and YWCA.
  • Developing alternatives, including, beginning a fostering programme, which includes both short-term(less than a year), and long-term fostering.

Number of Paid Staff: 5

Our needs

The Children’s Protection Society (CPS) is very happy to get volunteer help – in fact, they need it! You can volunteer for many different types of tasks and input.

Learning and Tuition is always needed – many of the children have missed a substantial amount of school due to their backgrounds, and often find it difficult to catch up with school work.

Having volunteers give extra help in the Shelter is very, very valuable. If you are prepared for the extra challenges which many of the children face, and are prepared to commit a regular time a week (can be anything from an hour up), let us know.

If you also prepared to share another skill (computer, music, games), let us know. There may well be room to fit you in with a group of kids, possibly at the weekend.

Volunteers are also very welcome as chaperones and taxi drivers – their children are involved in a number of (different) external activities and they are always stretched with regard to transport. We also might need help at weekends in accompanying the children on outings.

CPS depends on grants and donations to cover their relatively high running costs. Hence, contributions, both in cash and kind, as well as services will be greatly appreciated.
