25 is not a big number, neither it is a small number. I am entering into the age of an adult and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday with the kids in Yayasan Sunbeam! I got to know this orphanage through a old church-mate. I manage to contact the person in charge and set a date to organize my birthday party together with 4 other March babies in Sunbeam. It was the best birthday gift ever happen in my life!
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 started in 1995 by a couple. From a home of first two half-brothers the Taman Mawar home has grown to a total of 126 children, consisting of boys and girls. These children range from age 4 to 26. The 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.
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 personalized learning method that will help to instill academic confidence and motivation. We prepare them to sit for the Government examinations. We need approximately RM40,000 monthly to run this centre.
Current Plan :
The rebuilding of the Girls’Home end of June 2016 will be a 3 storey building on a piece of corner lot land just opposite the current Boys’ Home. We need approximately RM1 million for the building.
Once again thank you each and every person who dropped by on 18h March 2017 to support and celebrate my birthday with the 4 other kids. Some of the volunteers even bought presents for the children. One of them wrote a cheque on the spot. A million thanks to all volunteers who take your precious time out to be with me that day! Your attendance is a great support and encouragement to me and the kids here in Yayasan Sunbeam! My birthday is so much happier with all the good people around me! God bless everyone and let’s do more good thing in life. Spread the love to one another and celebrate it together.
