Haircut skill for Dignity

It’s confirmed.

Im partnering with www.DignityForChildren.org to offer free haircut course for the underprivileged and needy teenager.

After months of preparation and meeting with Ps. Elisha , teacher Ben , aunty Beant and her team… we are finally ready to roll . As for now , we have 10 students enrolled . Its gonna be exciting to see the growth and progress of one teen in picking up haircut skill.

Ultimately, our vision is to empower the teen with a set of haircut skill and see them embark in a journey to break the cycle of poverty.  Too many untold stories of how poor the background of these kids and their family . Some of these kids are refugees and some are the urban poor families who live in this beautiful city of KL. I believe they can be nurtured and guided to strive in this society . All we need is to provide the first seed and help them grow.

I believe everyone can play a part to contribute in making this society a better place . Curbing poverty is not a one day job but it require effort from the society for the society.

As for now, i’m finalising my teaching materials , text book and the entire schedule of 6 months course.  I’m also looking for sponsorships and contributions in  cash to purchase  the haircut tools or sponsorship of the tools itself.

Tax exemption receipt will also be issued to contributor 🙂

The tools that we are getting for these teens are :-

* Scissor
* Sectioning clip
* Cutting cape
* Hairdryer
* Mannequin
* Clipper
* Razor / thinning scissor
* mirror and etc…..

The cost of the tools goes up to RM200 per student.  We are trying to purchase in bulk from the wholesaler so its cheaper.

DignityForChilldren.Org

Visited one of my lecturer , Ps. Elisha Satvinder …. the founder of www.DignityForChildren.org  .
I had the privilege to visit the school where it cater to almost 1000 of students , from kindergarden , primary all the way to secondary school. This school’s mission is to break poverty through education. Their belief is to break the cycle of poverty by giving education freely to the under privileged .

We had a long chat …. a great chat indeed.

Well, the reason why i meet up with the founder…………

I’m offering haircut class for the vocational class.

It was a fruitful meeting with Ps. Elisha and his team .

Its indeed an exciting journey ahead for me.  As for now, i’m working on the class lessons and modules.  I hope this haircut “course” will benefit the underprivileged teens and will be a “seed” to grow and they shall become professional hairdresser one day.

Arrived Promise home with a mission to remove lice from these kids.  These kids got complained from the school.. So have no choice but to cut their hair really short.. unfortunately, some of them dont enjoy getting “short ” haircut…. guess what, they cried… Pretty tough for me but after much persuasion by teacher Gwen, the kids finally agreed to cut short..

PROMISE HOME

Months ago… i posted on Kota Kemuning Facebook group to offer haircut services to the needy..  received a lot of positive comments and got a list of “homes” that i plan to visit… so back in January i visited this home ..

promisehome

“The Promise Home”
No 19, Jalan Anggerik Arand 31/170C, Kota Kemuning

Promise Home houses more than 30 over Orang Asli kids from Tapah , SlimRiver (Perak) who were born to severely poor aboriginal families in the extreme rural kampungs, with no opportunities to study or to even interact with the rest of the world.The mission of this home is to provide shelter and proper education to these kids. Some of them are so talented in music that they can play various music instruments.
