YAYASAN CHOW KIT
We are a 24-hour crisis and drop-in centre providing meals, activities, therapy, case management, and educational programmes for at-risk children and teenagers around Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur.
Yayasan Chow Kit is a non-profit organisation that caters to the needs of children and teenagers in and around Chow Kit. We currently run two drop-in centres within Chow Kit and one safe home for children who are in need of temporary guardianship.
PAKK caters to children from the age of 7 to 12 years old, providing a safe and nurturing environment for the children to learn and play.
KLKP caters to teenagers aged 13 to 18 years old, providing a safe space for teens to engage meaningfully and productively with their peers.
We have a safehouse, which provides full-time shelter for higher risk children, inclusive of infants, at an undisclosed location.
We protect the rights of all at-risk children and youth, provide them with safe havens, and expose them to as many positive and holistic opportunities as possible to enable them to reach their full potential.
We uphold respect for children’s rights and recognize that all children are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
We believe in developing good moral values that help build character, a sense of responsibility and good discipline.
We will maintain inter-agency commitment, cooperation and partnerships with other organisations that share common values and objectives.
We are accountable for the implementation and outcomes of our organisation’s stated and expected goals.
