How we’re run

We are an initiative of The Welfare and Human Capital Development Association Selangor, and officially registered with the Malaysian Registrar of Societies and Organisations as “Persatuan Kebajikan Dan Pembangunan Modal Insan Selangor”.

Our people

We have twelve committee members:

  • Farzana Ahmad, President.
  • Rajeswary, A/P SMK.
  • Rajah, Secretary.
  • Guneswari, A/P.
  • Uthamasilan, Treasurer.

They meet every quarter for updates.

The students and volunteers at CSO extend their thanks to our committee members for their ongoing commitment and support, and also to the Malaysian Government for enabling the formation of our association.

Our funding

We are entirely self-funded – essentially private schools without parental funding. 55 per cent of our funding is from donations, 25 per cent is from school fees, and 20 per cent from sales of the local Chin community newspaper.

We receive donations are from individuals and organisations, both local and international. We also put on events to raise money. Our school fees are a nominal 20 Malaysian Ringgit (US$6) per child, per month.

Our funding goes toward:

  • school uniforms
  • books
  • food
  • utilities and rent
  • dental care
  • special events.

Financial management

As an official association, we require rigorous financial management of our activities, including:

  • Day-to-day management and reporting to the committee by senior and experienced administrators.
  • Annual audits submitted to Malaysian Registrar of Societies and Organisations by a certified accounting firm.
  • Ongoing oversight by committee members.
  • All cheques must be signed by three committee members and photocopied.

We continue to strengthen our financial controls to match our increasing size and scope, including any custom requirements of major donors.

We commit significant resources to our budgeting process, as it’s a challenge to balance income and expenditure each year. At the end of the day, the budget will always be balanced, but the children may have to go without something essential. So, we find creative ways to make it work, like using the same text books for the last five years.
