The Yayasan Sunbeams Home Community Learning Centre (CLC) was officially launched in 2008 when its founder Pastor Alvin Tan realized what disadvantaged and underprivileged children had to endure. These children came from divided/ broken families, other adverse backgrounds and were neglected or abused. Due to these dire circumstances, they either lost the will to study or their studies were discontinued or interrupted.

When Yayasan Sunbeams Home (“YSH”) took in these children and placed them back into normal stream schools, they were not able to cope with their studies mainly due to the large number of students in each class and the corresponding lack of attention offered by the teachers. Unfortunately, these children began falling back in their studies and started causing problems in such schools – mainly due to the lack of self-esteem and meaningful motivation to do well.

Of the children that YSH had sent to such normal main stream schools, only a small percentage, around 2% completed the mandatory SPM/ Form 5 examinations successfully. YSH realized, then, that many of their children were not successful in their education and decided to move forward with its own Home School program.

It only took twelve months to see huge improvements and productive manifestations. The personal attention that all children received from the teachers in a smaller class environment paid off- their positive attitude towards their studies improved further and they began performing better. It is the principle of sharing and caring that changed their lives and the passion to learn. The personal and genuine attention and love given to them when they were having problems made a significant difference.

YSH’s children are more disciplined due to improved self-esteem and self-motivation to do well, are more confident in their studies and have improved as reflected in the examinations conducted by the Home School. They speak and communicate proficiently in proper English, Malay and a majority of them can also speak Mandarin regardless of their original mother tongue.

At present, there are 83 children studying in CLC. YSH gears the children to take the Government school exams. The first batch of students sat for their SPM exam at the end of 2012 and obtained good results.
