Remarriages & Step Families

PPIS VISTA SAKINAH

PPIS Vista Sakinah is a centre that specialises in preparing and strengthening remarriages and step families. The centre works with couples and step families to awaken resilience and foster a sense of peace and tranquillity in the life of their stepfamily.

About

PPIS Vista Sakinah offers special services for couples and step families who are about to re-enter the realm of remarriage through marriage preparation courses, private consultations, and workshops for step families who want to improve the quality of their family life, as well as children who may need support in adjusting themselves with the life of their step families. Remarriage and caring for step families can be a more complex relationship building as compared to first marriages. Thus, we are offering assistance to help step families adjust well with one another and build a stable and healthy relationship among each of the members. At PPIS Vista Sakinah, training is also provided for social workers and counsellors to hone their communication skills whilst dealing with issues related to step families.

Programmes & Courses

PPIS is an organisation that advocates for women empowerment, children’s rights and the importance of families in a society. We offer various programmes and projects that further these initiatives including those that concern remarriage and caring for step families.
