Yayasan Chow Kit is a non-profit organization that caters to the need of children in and around the area of Chow Kit. Over the years, our operation has expanded to different areas of Kuala Lumpur as well. We aim to protect and champion the rights of all marginalized 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 run two drop-in centers in Chow Kit and one safe home for children who are in need of temporary guardianship. The children center “Pusat Akitiviti Kanak- Kanak” caters to children from age 7-12 and our teenage center known as “KL Krash Pad” welcomes youths from the ages of 13-18.
We are starting an Education Fund because we believe that quality education is the key for children from low income family to break out of the cycle of poverty. At YCK, we do our best to provide children with their basic needs in order to ensure them the best chance to progress in school. That includes supporting their school fees, exercise books, stationary, uniform and school shoes.
We also aim to build a scholarship fund to support children tertiary education and vocational opportunities in order to ensure that our children join the workforce with marketable skills.
We would like to extend this invitation to you to play a role in nurturing our leaders of tomorrow.
