Young Marriages


At INSPIRASI PPIS, we recognise the sanctity of marriage and the importance of supporting young marriages.


PPIS was one of the two organisations that were appointed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) in 2007 to prepare and strengthen young marriages. Young couples, where either partner is below 21 years old or where the groom-to be is 21 to below 25 years old and the bride-to-be is 21 years old and above, can benefit from INSPIRASI PPIS’ Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP).


Our services are designed for young couples and their parents to make an informed decision on marriage, as well as to prepare the young couple for family life. Apart from MPP, young and married couples can also benefit from a range of Marriage Support and Enrichment Programmes in the first ten years of their marriage.
