My Tiffin

Host Organisation

Dignity for Children Foundation

Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity) aims to empower underprivileged urban poor children to break the cycle of poverty through quality education, transforming their lives and the community around them.

Dignity started 16 years ago in Sentul with about 20 students. It is now a learning centre with about 1,000 poor and vulnerable children ranging from 2-17 years old. This organisation provides quality education and care in a secure environment from pre-school to Form 5. Many of the children had gone through the school and passed with O level qualifications. Without Dignity’s education provisions these underprivileged children would probably be engaged with undesirable activities in the streets.

Dignity achieves this by establishing high quality learning centres under one roof for the poor; implementing specialised learning environments to develop children academically and socially thus empowering them to become productive members of society.
