Who are we

The Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation is committed to the welfare of children with Down Syndrome, its main focus being the education of these children up to six years old.

Our activities

Its activities are geared toward the setting up and management of Centres of Education for Children with Down Syndrome up to 6 years old where emphasis is on:

  • Maintaining and upgrading Special Education Programmes
  • Training of teachers in Special Needs Education
  • Counselling of families of children with Down Syndrome
  • Maintaining a comprehensive Resource Centre with information on Down Syndrome and Special Educational aids
  • Creating public awareness of Down Syndrome

The JB Centre was opened on September 1991. The JB Centre became the second centre of its kind under the KDSF. The centre first opened its doors with nine children and two teachers. It operated from a rented premise at Jalan Abdul Samad. In 1996, in recognition of the sincerity and steadfast commitment of the club to its community projects, the State Social Welfare Department of Johor allocated a rent-free building to JB Club to undertake the Early Intervention Programme for children with Down Syndrome. The KDSF JB Centre has been operating at 2C Jln Yahya Awal since and has been growing steadily over the past years. The incremental enrolment of children over the years has signalled the need for the centre’s expansion. Hence finding a suitable site and building of its own has become the immediate focus of the management committee
