Berita Minggu ‘Generasi Contoh’ Features


Generasi Contoh Flowering Tree Icon Generasi Contoh Berita Minggu Features – a public education initiative by PPIS

As part of our public education campaign for the year 2010, we have collaborated with Berita Minggu in producing feature articles from our PPIS case files as well as other resources.

We want to share these stories with the community in order to inspire the following objectives:

  • to encourage everyone to see beyond their day to day issues and think holistically towards a better life for us, our family and our future generation.
    • to remind ourselves that our problems may be new to us but there are others who have faced such problems before who can help them to overcome our problems if only we reach out to these people by participating in sharing sessions, counseling, work-groups, self-help programmes, like the ones PPIS are organising.
      • to educate ourselves that solving problems must not just be about quick fixes, we need to think longer term on whether the solutions will impact us and our future generation/family positively or negatively.
        • to inculcate three characteristics that will guide us through any challenge that life has to offer:

          Visionary, Ihsan and Resilient.
