Armed with a compelling desire to make a difference to the abandoned, abused and orphaned children, in 1998, CyberCare embarked on a mission to build an electronic community for the children’s Homes by enrolling the support of Microsoft Malaysia and Hitechniaga.
Today, with the support of participating universities, corporate sponsors and dedicated volunteers, we are actively engaged in organising youth development programmes for the underserved communities to help them achieve their full potential.
Among the programmes we organise include:
Make a Difference (‘M.A.D’)
Incepted in 2008, M.A.D. supports youth aged 13 to 15 create and deliver a community project of their own through close collaborations with local universities
Self-empowering and Transition Employability Programme (‘STEP’)
(March – June)
First run in 2013, STEP empowers youth aged 16 and above to make informed career-related decisions in preparation for independence adulthood, through exposure to real-world challenges
Youth Entrepreneurship Programme (‘YEP’)
(December – April)
Piloted in 2017, YEP endeavours to instil an entrepreneurial mindset in youth aged 18 and above by equipping them with the required business skills and life skills to be self-sustaining members of society
CyberCare also supports the implementation and running of two other programmes that complements its mission to support underserved communities in Malaysia.
Tutor a Refugee Child
Since 2014, CyberCare pools together volunteers on a weekly basis to teach the children how to read and write, be employable and have a better chance to get relocated
Change Makers’ Project (‘CMP’)
(October – November)
A joint- collaboration with professional trainers, CMP is designed to help nurture and empower a new generation of trainers to run CyberCare’s programmes
