RUMAH AMAN CHILDREN'S HOME
Rumah Aman (meaning “Peaceful Home” in Malay) is a non-profit and non-political children’s home. Their mission is to care for orphans and needy children by providing not just a shelter but a peaceful home, uplifting the children’s characters, and developing competencies through education. This is done with the vision that the children will become exemplary members of society who benefit themselves and others.
Founded in 2005, Rumah Aman first opened in Seksyen 2, Shah Alam. Since then, it has opened a home in Saujana Utama, which now serves as the base of operations, the boys’ dormitory, and also the children’s school. The home in Shah Alam is now the dormitory for girls.
Rumah Aman does not just provide a roof over their children’s heads, it provides a home and education on par with the national standard. Through this, Rumah Aman hopes to break the cycle of reliance and give the best opportunities available to their children so they become caring global citizens.
Although registered with the Malaysian Welfare Department since 2006, Rumah Aman covers its operational costs through sponsorship, donation, zakat and sadaqah lillah entrusted by the public. All financial contributions are eligible for tax exemption by the Revenue Board of Malaysia.
