Your donation will go a long way in providing our boys a safe environment for a second chance to rebuild a better, more positive lives for themselves, their family and the community.
Your small change makes a big difference to our residents, like Danii (not his real name).
Danii was admitted into Muhammadiyah Welfare Home at the age of 15 under Care and Protection Order.
He was living with his single mother, who was working two jobs to support the family and did not have much opportunity to supervise and spend quality time with him.
He tried to compensate for the lack of care by seeking seeking attention from his friends instead. As a result of mixing with the wrong company, Danii started displaying delinquent behaviour and even left school at a young age due to truancy.
Danii was initially resistant about staying in the Home and going back to school. With the continuous encouragement and support of the Home, Danii had a change of heart about his stay and even wanted to continue his studies.
The Home arranged for personal tutors to coach him and mentors to guide him for more than a year. Danii sat for the N-Level examination as a private candidate in 2018. His results allowed him to pursue his studies in the Mechanical Technology in the Institute of Technical Education.
Danii was granted an early release from the Home this year as a result of his excellent progress and conduct.
About the Charity
Muhammadiyah Welfare Home is a residential shelter that cares for boys between the ages of 10 to 18 years old who have been admitted under the Care and Protection Orders, Compassionate Grounds or are sent by other agencies such as the Court and the Ministry of Social & Family Development (MSF). It provides a holistic care for each resident through education, programmes, casework intervention and behaviour modification tools.
MWH takes a holistic and multi-agency approach in managing cases of at-risk children and youths who have been referred to the Home. We work closely with various government and other community agencies such as schools, medical professionals, family service centres and community development councils. The safety and well-being of the child and youths is our upmost priority and with careful assessment, individualised plans and targeted interventions are put in place for each admission.
Our case workers support the children and youths in ways such as strengthening their socio-emotional development, developing their level of resilience and improving their education either through formal schooling and/or informal tutoring. We also work towards improving their family relationship to ensure a smooth reintegration upon their eventual discharge from the Home.
MWH is one of the residential Homes that is selected to participate in the Safe and Strong Families (SSF) Pilot initiative by MSF.
