The committee came into existence late 2006 with the running of the Pilot Personal Safety Workshop for 50 twelve year old school children in October for a primary school in Petaling Jaya, sponsored by SIROM and funded by Nanyang Press Foundation. The committee went into full swing in 2007, conducting the following activities:
- Personal Safety Workshop for 72 boys aged 7 – 8 years for Methodist Primary School in Kuala Lumpur in English – funded by Nanyang Press Foundation
- Training the Trainer of 10 HELP College students
- Supported the 10 HELP College students to run a similar workshop in Mandarin for 50 children of a Chinese primary school at Raub, Pahang
- Personal Safety Workshop for 60 children of the staff of Westport Malaysia Sdn Bhd in Bahasa Malaysia
- Talk on Child Sexual Abuse in Bahasa Malaysia to create awareness to 20 staff/parents of Westport Malaysia Sdn Bhd
In carrying out the above, members were encouraged to go for training. Two members attended a 2 day training programme on Child Sexual Abuse. Members got to network with other NGOs engaged in the same area of interest to widen our knowledge.
The Personal Safety Workshop manuals and PowerPoint presentations for different age groups were developed by our own members. Translation into Bahasa Malaysia was also done.
In the immediate pipeline will be a Personal Safety Workshop for a rural school as well as Training the Trainer Workshop for SI Seremban. Further development of the PowerPoint presentation on Child Sexual Abuse will also be undertaken.
Thanks to donation of Euro2000 from our Ambassador to France, we can continue to conduct workshops for the underprivileged children of various Homes.
From April to August 2008, the activities will cover:
- Training of Trainers for 22 HELP College students for their outreach village programme on Children Personal Workshop and Awareness on Child Sexual Abuse
- Training of Trainers in collaboration with SI Seremban
- Children’s Personal Safety Workshop in collaboration with HELP College students at Ayer Keroh, Malacca
