Divorce / Single Parents

PPIS AS-SALAAM

PPIS As-Salaam is a centre of specialisation, with more than 30 years of experience in working with Malay- Muslim single parent families.

About

 

In 2015, PPIS As-Salaam set another milestone by being appointed as a Divorce Support Specialist Agency (DSSA) by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). Through specialised trainings, the staff were further equipped with knowledge and skills in handling divorce issues, as part of their effort to strive in providing the support needed for divorcing/divorced families.

As a DSSA, we offer counselling and other programmes such as Parenting PACT and Children in Between (CiB) for parents and their young children to better understand the impact of divorce and be aware of available resources in the community. We also provide assistance in the form of support programmes like the MAWAR Support Programme for single mothers and SALAAM Support Programme for children between the ages of 10 to 17 years old.

 

At PPIS As-Salaam, we believe that life is a journey, full of tribulations. Yet each tribulation represents an opportunity and potential for families to grow from strength to strength. When families are able to overcome these life challenges, they move on positively and become stronger.

Mdm. N – M.A.W.A.R Support Programme for Mothers

“I learnt that life is a journey, there are obstacles. I have let out what I kept inside me about my family problems. I feel happy because I feel that I really understand what is happening (changes after divorce)”
