PPIS Lighting Lives – evolution of a new identity.
PPIS has evolved significantly in the past 60 years and has ambitious plans for the future. On its 55th year, PPIS has decided to take a bold leap forward and create a new identity for herself.
In line with its new identity, PPIS has adopted the Lighting Lives slogan, represented by a flame, to guide its great leap forward. In the years ahead PPIS will develop a robust up-to-date structure to meet the needs of a tech-savvy and knowledge-based community. Underpinning these new developments is an unchanging allegiance to its core Islamic values.
Inspired by the passion and drive of PPIS, the flame signifies light and empowerment. The flame further represents PPIS lighting the way for and empowering Muslim women to achieve a future filled with hope, promise and success.
The heat emitted by the flame signifies the warmth and compassion that radiates from our cohesive organization. Together, the three divisions of PPIS will work hand-in-hand to deliver the best outcomes in community service.
Light connotes brightness, enlightenment, luminescence, radiance, illumination, glow and above all, empowerment.
Sincere in the services that we provide
Pro-Active in attending to the needs of the community
Compassionate in our actions
Reliable in service delivery
Effective and efficient in executing the services
‘Dakwah’ inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong
Based on the values of SACRED (Sincere, pro-Active, Compassionate, Reliable, Effective and Dakwah – enjoining others to good), PPIS is committed in its efforts to catalyse and develop positive changes in the lives of disadvantaged and underrepresented Muslim women and their dependents to build sustainable families that are socially and economically independent.
For every individual, family, woman and the community it serves, PPIS hopes to cultivate these virtues of success:
Visionary – Farsightedness in the pursuit of success
‘Ihsan’– Compassion and Benevolence towards oneself and others
Resilience – Willpower to rise against all adversities
Leaders in Working with Malay-Muslim Families.
In August 2009, PPIS was appointed as the Centre of Specialization in working with Malay-Muslim Families by the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). Madam Maznah Masop, Chief Executive Officer of PPIS said, “PPIS is honoured to be appointed as a specialist in our field of expertise – working with Malay-Muslim Families. As the NCSS appointee we welcome organisations to come to us for consultation and advice.” She adds,” With this new role, not only will we foster the spirit of collaboration within the social service sector; but by sharing our 58 years of experience and best practices with other organisations, together we ultimately improve lives and benefit people in our community.”
PPIS has also been conducting training programmes and workshops for social service professionals to have a better understanding of their Malay-Muslim clients.
