Yayasan Sunbeams Home (YSH), a non-governmental, self-supporting multi-racial foundation, is home to displaced, abused and neglected children of single-parents. It was the brain-child of a husband and wife team Pastor Alvin Tan and his late wife, Pastor Lucy. It was started in 1995.

From a home of first two half-brothers the Taman Mawar home has grown to a total of 122 children consisting of boys and girls. This number includes children from our Alor Gajah Branch, Teratai Branch & Daycare children. Our children range from 2 years to 23 years old.

A colourful blend of culture occupy its premises, which include, Chinese, Indians and Orang Asli, all looked after by pioneers and 40 plus others who make up the staff and some volunteers who come by to oversee the children’s studies.

Taman Mawar Boys’ Home

Relocated from former Ampang Boys’ Home to 57 & 59 Jalan Bunga Melur 11A, Taman Mawar, 56100 Kuala Lumpur. The building consists of 3 stories. The office is situated on the ground floor where the kitchen and dining areas are. The 1st and 2nd floor, house the boys, totalling 57 pax.

Taman Mawar Girls’ Home

As we have yet to build the Girls’ Home, 10 of our older girls are staying here.

Teratai Girls’ Home

The rest of the girls totalling 26 pax are staying in this house which is kindly loaned to us pro bono by a generous couple.

Day Care Centre

A day care centre was set up to cater to the needs of the low income underprivileged parents who can ill afford to send their children to the commercial day care centres. In this centre, we have a full time coordinator and volunteers to help guide the children in their studies.

Alor Gajah Branch

Our branch in Alor Gajah, Malacca was launched on 1st May 2007. Currently we have rented two premises for the work there.

Community Learning Centre (CLC)

The Community Learning Centre was launched in January 2008 with the objective of approaching an alternative way in handling our children’s education. We believe that every child is unique and learns differently. Therefore these children are given a more personalised learning method that will help to instil academic confidence and motivation. We prepare them to sit for the Government examinations. We need approximately RM40,000 monthly to run this Centre.

Feeding Ministry

As the vision expands, we have also set up a department to provide provisions and other help

to the following groups of people in need:

  1. The Orang Asli groups in Pahang, Kelantan, Perak and Selangor.

  2. 200 Poor families, old folks and single parents.

Current Plan

We are looking forward to start building the Girls’ Home soon. This will also be a 3 storey building on a piece of corner lot land just opposite the current Boys’ Home. We need approximately RM1.5 million for the building.

Future Plan

Our future plan is to acquire a piece of land about five (5) acres to build a multi-purpose complex where all the community services will be available e.g. The Children’s Home, Day Care Centre, Youth Centre, Food distribution Centre to the poor, services to the single parents, old folks, a Community Clinic and also an Administration Office.

Sunbeams Staff

We have currently our founder, Ps Alvin Tan and Board of Trustees together with 48 salaried staff helping to run these homes.

Sunbeams Home is non-governmental, self-supporting and depend on well-wishers and donors to sustain itself. Expenditure, amounts to about RM140,000 a month; the bulk of which goes towards the children’s needs. These include food, clothing, accommodation, transport and education expenses.

Sunbeams Home will accept any mode of donation, be it monetary or in kind. If it is monetary, a receipt will be issued of which the amount is tax exempted. Our bank account details are as follows:
