CyberCare

CyberCare CyberCare is a nongovernment organization (NGO) established in 1998 by young Malaysians who envisioned using information technology and life skills coaching to connect youth in orphanages and to empower them to discover and develop their full potential to make a positive difference to their lives.

Since its inception, CyberCare has engaged more than 800 volunteers, the majority aged 22 to 30 years, to build technology infrastructure in select Homes. This effort involved setting up computer equipment and Internet access in 90 homes or orphanages, connecting over 5,000 youth. Using this technology backbone in the homes, CyberCare also regularly performs eWorkshops and cybercamps to promote the use of technology among the youth. In 2004, the organization launched the Youth Leadership Mentoring Program, which includes a leadership camp and follow-through activities and events over one year. This evolved into our highly successful M.A.D. (Making A Difference) training curriculum which incorporated ICT training, life skills and the application of these in a real-life community project.

Over the years, CyberCare has gathered the support of global companies such as Microsoft, Samsung, National IT Council Malaysia, Swiss Development Corp., Global Knowledge Partnership, Demonstrator Application Grant Scheme, Symantec and Hewlett Packard , to better align its efforts and serve the youth more effectively and efficiently. It also collaborates with other NGOs such as Yellow House by the Friends of Unicef, Monfort Foundation, Persatuan Kebajikan Kanda-Dinda, and Selangor Social Welfare Council.

To date, CyberCare has taught more than 1,500 children to use technology, organized more than 15 youth camps for more than 500 junior youth, and engaged more than 800 volunteers in activities and projects. It has been recognized for Best Practices in Community Service by Global Knowledge Partnership, and by Microsoft as among the Top 4 community service projects globally.

Moving forward, CyberCare plans to provide career opportunities for the youth in a bid to make it a self-sustaining endeavor. It also intends to launch a network of like-minded corporations to embark on a nation-wide community project to roll-out its youth development program to rural areas currently underserved.

Yayasan Salam Malaysia

Yayasan Salam Malaysia Yayasan Salam Malaysia, also called Salam, is an independent non-profit organization that aims to ignite the spirit of volunteerism among Malaysians by providing groups and individuals opportunities to work as volunteers at home and abroad. Activities are funded by contributions from individuals, corporate bodies and the government.

In the year 2009, Salam succeeded in signing up about 5,500 people as volunteers by conducting talks and participating in exhibitions. A directory - updated every 6 months - features full- and part-time volunteering opportunities in institutions such as orphanages, hospitals, and drug rehabilitation and aids drop-in centers. Salam also deploys volunteers to low-income communities, libraries, health clinics, refugee centers, and homes for the elderly.

Salam seeks to narrow the technology gap by assigning volunteers to collect and refurbish used computers, establish computer training centers in low-income communities, and train interested members of the communities. Moving forward, these centers are managed with the support of local community leaders, local government and corporate partners. As of July 2010, 23 centers have been established, and four more targeted to run within that year.

The NGO has been a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher since 2005 and has received the Microsoft Unlimited Potential grant since 2006. Its e-initiative model was showcased in the Microsoft Summit in Singapore in 2007, and the Dili International Youth Forum on ICT for Development and Consultation, and ICT for Education and Development in Kabul in 2008.

Other assignments can include disaster relief missions in Malaysia or abroad; conducting trainings in information technology, business, English communications, NGO administration, humanitarian services, curriculum development and project research. Salam also provides community health services, education for homeless children, and establishing Internet service.

Malaysians above 18 years old are eligible to become Salam volunteers. Fresh college graduates, mid-career people and retirees who have useful skills or work experience to share are welcome to sign up. Before deploying the volunteers, Salam conducts orientations, exposure programs and basic training to prepare volunteers to have awareness, in-depth knowledge and skills to do the work they have been assigned.

Save The ChildrenSave the Children is the world's leading independent organization for children. Its vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Its mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

Save the children focus on several areas:

Child Protection: For more than a decade, Save the Children has been protecting children from abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence in all regions of the world. Its programs focus on the most vulnerable children while aiming for the safety and well-being of all children.

Education and Child Development: Education is vital to lasting positive change in children's lives. Yet for millions of children and youth in developing countries, education is beyond grasp. Save the Children reaches the world's most marginalized children - those who urgently need education to survive and thrive in more than 30 countries around the world.

Health and Nutrition: Save the Children works to ensure that children, their mothers and other caregivers have access to and use key health and nutrition services, as well as adopt healthy behaviors in both development and emergency situations. They use evidence-based interventions to address the major causes of illness, death and malnutrition, and continue to develop innovative strategies to deliver these services most effectively to as many people as possible, especially in resource-poor and emergency situations.

Livelihoods: Save the Children works with vulnerable families in 27 countries to help ensure that they can afford to pay for basic needs and services for their children and provide access to sufficient, nutritious food all year round. They also offer assistance when shocks, such as rising food prices or natural or man-made disasters, threaten to devastate families.

Save the Children's presence in Indonesia spans some three decades - dating back to 1976. Overtime, Save the Children has grown enormously in the country and today they operate in 14 provinces across Indonesia. Their program approach now brings long term and sustainable benefits to more Indonesian children and they work to establish effective, self-sustaining approaches to issues related to child protection, health, education, livelihoods, emergency response and disaster risk reduction. Save the Children partners with children, communities, local organizations and the government of Indonesia to transform the lives of Indonesian children and their families.


AIESEC

AIESEC AIESEC is the world's largest youth-student organization. It provides a platform for youth leadership development and offers young people the opportunity to participate in international internships, experience leadership and participate in a global learning environment. What makes AIESEC unique is the youth driven impactful experience that it offers to its members.

AIESEC enables young people to explore and develop their leadership potential through what it calls an AIESEC Experience:

Global Community Development Program: International internships are the most intense learning experience it offers and links together AIESEC's global network. This program encompasses cross-cultural positive impact through working abroad for social and community development projects that lead to self-development and skill enhancement for the members undertaking the program.

Team Leader Program: This experience will culminate in your personal and professional development through the concept of team building and management. Participants experience leading other members and guiding them in their work, thus becoming a crucial part of their development.

Team Member Program: It is one of the most crucial ways in which participants can start on their path toward leadership development. In this phase, participants will be introduced to a practical team experience, gain access to a global network and engage in practical hard skills development through a teamwork experience.

Global Internship Program: This program offers internships that contribute to the professional development of a member and assist them to specialize in a certain field of work. They are normally long term in nature and involve working on diverse business projects and organizations.

AIESEC approaches to create positive impact to society
AIESEC wants to develop responsible and entrepreneurial leaders who are willing to positively impact society and the world. By collaborating with various stakeholders -- government, education institutions, organizations, private sector, and others -- AIESEC creates projects based on Exchange, a collaborative project that brings together local and international participants to act on current issues and situations in Indonesia and in the world.
