Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK) is a non-profit organization that caters to the needs of children in and around Chow Kit. We run two drop-in centres in Chow Kit and one safe home for children who are in need of temporary guardianship. We operate in partnership with Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat, and a group of strategic partner comprises of Foundations, corporate companies as well as NGOs. YCK developed out of Nur Salam and was incorporated on 19 January 2011.
YCK aims to provide a safe space and expose the children to as many positive opportunities to allow each child to reach their full potential. The children’s center ‘Pusat Aktiviti Kanak-Kanak’ caters to children from the age of 7-12 and our teenage center known as ‘KL Krash Pad’ welcomes youths from the ages of 13 to 21. All the centres provide food, age-appropriate facilities, and set of programmes designed based on 5 Pillars of the followings: Education, Psycho-Social, Sports & Health, Spirituality, and Recreational.
We have an array of activities offered such as games, art classes, psychosocial activities, recreational activities, motivational talks, sports activities and educational programs. YCK team ( fondly known as YCK Family ) aspires to tackle issues affecting the local community such as education, foster care, documentation, skill building, adoption, homelessness, abuse and many more.
As reflected symbolically by our logo, consider us splashes of colourful paint in an otherwise grey neighborhood, inspiring to celebrate and bring positive changes to the lives of our children, the families, and the community.
