We are continuing to appeal to our readers and visitors to donate to our work of running two centres. The annual budget is RM120,000 (USD38,000) for 2014 and 2015 and will grow higher as we recruit more staff and take in additional trainees.

Please make payment to 'Persatuan Berdikari Seremban Negeri Sembilan' with your name and address on a cover slip so we can mail you our official receipt. All donations from April 1 2011 will be exempted from taxation by the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia. Please send the payment to:

The Treasurer, Persatuan Berdikari Seremban Negeri Sembilan, 381, Jalan Kenanga 1, Taman Bukit Chedang, 70300 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.

Thank you for your support.

Looking Forward

After the anniversary celebration we need to look seriously forward to bringing PBSNS to its rightful role in society. Certainly we cannot remain where we are now or else there is no reason to move out of the church to be a society.

I have several thoughts to take PBSNS to a better position:

1. We need our own base. Presently we are renting space from the church. I believe it is understandable for us to buy over the building so that we can expand upward and recruit more trainees. This will require another fund raising drive.

2. We wish to become a centre that help train others to run their own centres. After being under Malaysian Care's guidance we need to wean off that dependence and move beyond to be a trainer ourselves.

3. We need to bring quality training through jobs that give our trainees fair income. One such new work for consideration in future when space allows is a laundry service.

4. We have to develop a corporate sponsorship base to help us secure sustainable financial contributions to pay our expenses.

5. We need to project an image that invoke trust and confidence in our work. That will require a strong leadership and executive teams to translate plans into actions.

We welcome suggestions and offers to help PBSNS to realise its greater work in the coming years.
