Pusat Jagaan Beribuan Kasih is an NGO, founded by Ms Kavita and her friends. However at the moment she is running the entire orphanage by herself and struggling to make ends meet. Currently, the orphanage survives on the mercy of irregular donations of the good public. She has about 45 residents under her wing of which there are 25 children of which 5 are disabled children and the rest are adults without a home. Living conditions are sufficient for survival but questionable in terms of a healthy environment. About Project Happiness
Project Happiness is an ongoing project, which started months ago. We are currently supported by Khind Starfish Foundation, Munchy’s Food Industries Sdn Bhd, Julie’s Biscuit, CM Creative Design, Taylor’s University as well as a few other sponsors. We have also received many kind donations from members of the public. Our mission is:
1. To improve the quality of life of the children of the orphanage through the process of refurbishment.
2. To carry out an interactive workshop aimed to develop some of their skills.
3. To hold a carnival to raise awareness amongst the public as well as to provide an opportunity for the orphans to display their artwork and have a fun filled day.About the Carnival Day
The Carnival Day will be considered as the final event to wrap up Project Happiness. Refurbishment of the orphanage is well underway and the workshop will be held shortly before the carnival. Carnival Day highlights include:
• Booths for games, food and beverages
• Sharing session by the founder of the orphanage, Miss Kavitha
• Booth to showcase the ‘before-and-after’ pictures of the orphanage following the refurbishment efforts made possible by Project Happiness
• Booth to accept kind contributions from the public eg. Funds, toys, books, clothes etc.
