Who we are

PPIA is a duly registered non-profit, charitable organisation, committed to serving children and youths with intellectual challenges in and around the town of Batu Pahat, irrespective of race and religion.

PPIA is registered under the Registrar of Societies, with the registration number of ROS No. 1624. PPIA is recognised as a tax-exempted organisation and is mainly dependent on public funding.

PPIA hopes to change the lives of children and youths with intellectual challenges through education and training, which will help them to progress in life.

Our History

PPIA was started in 1999, in response to a dire need to help the many children with intellectual challenges in the town of Batu Pahat. Their medical conditions range from Down Syndrome, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Dyslexia and other forms of disabilities.

Their needs were not met at that time, as there was a lack of public awareness, facilities and special help in Batu Pahat. Ignorance, social stigma, superstitions and general apathy towards them and their families further confined and isolated them from society.

It was due to this crying need for help that Gereja Grace Batu Pahat initiated this community project, which has continued and expanded until today. Since 1999, PPIA has continued to grow from one programme to the four programmes that it has right now. PPIA’s expansion has allowed us to greatly increase our scope of work and the number of clients that we service.

  • To develop support services of education and training so that the special people can achieve their full potential
