Splash and sun with Hilla Children

May 18th 2012 – It was one of my most exciting Friday mornings of the month! I had been looking forward to taking 80 kids and youths to Sunway Lagoon for 2 weeks since getting to know about this outing through BECAUSE. Mind you these are not just any other kids

Calling for Volunteers!

1 more month left to the Malaysia Fundraising Awards 2012 Charity Gala Dinner! So far we have recruited 2 enthusiastic volunteers to be part of our secretariat. We need FOUR MORE!

IWRM…. What is it???

if you’re an NGO, and you are scratching your head for new ideas on how to raise funds to finance your activities… if you are worried about how to sustain your cause… you should really join this workshop!

Our First Public Shout Out!

BECAUSE set up a little booth in a little corner of the LG1 concourse of Sunway Pyramid, where a roadshow organised by Kechara was held.  The theme for this roadshow was “The Joy of Sharing“.  We thank Kechara and Sunway for having us as well as Kechara Children’s Class for loaning the chic bar tables and chairs to us =D

What is the best gift for the residents of Lovely Nursing Centre?

It was BECAUSE’s first time visiting the Centre whilst SIPJ had been kindly organizing such visits to the Centre every year. This time, Kechara Oasis had sponsored the tasty vegetarian dinner while SIPJ sang some Christmas carols, complete with a Malaysian Santa Clause!
