Kid’s Kingdom is a joint project between MCA, Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras and Charis Community Services Bhd. Officially launched by Datuk Tan Chai Ho, the Deputy Minister of Home Affairs and MP for Bandar Tun Razak on 6 March, 2004, Kid’s Kingdom serves to render weekly free-of-charge classes to the children of low-income group in the Cheras community.

 

The objectives are:

·         To teach children to read, write and speak English using imaginative and enjoyable stories, phonetics and rhymes.

·         To encourage children’s interactions, cooperation, sharing and team effort through fun and meaningful games.

·         To teach children how to cultivate positive characters and apply them to everyday living.

·         To conduct periodically a Healthcare Day for the children and their families.

 

Kid’s Kingdom is opened to children ages 5 to 12. The classes are divided into two sessions each Saturday mornings and taught by experienced volunteers. Each session lasts for 1½ hours. Moral lessons will be included at the end of each session to create an awareness of healthy lifestyle and good manners so that the children may grow up to be exemplary citizens. The Health Care Day will teach the students the importance of hygiene and cleanliness and care of our environment. A maximum of 140 children will benefit from the program.

MCA, Bandar Tun Razak, under the leadership of Datuk Tan Chai Ho, has graciously provided the use of the community hall at Taman Tenaga, Cheras for the weekly classes. MCA has also furnished the hall with furniture, equipment and teaching tools.
