New staff

Two new staff have joined us on the administration front – Delia Kwong and Tan Seng Chin.

 As for teaching staff, 3 others have joined us: Noorazah – in the Early Intervention Programme (EIP), and Teoh Leong Beng in the Young Adults Programme (YAP).  The third teacher comes to us under special circumstances.  Mr Akira Shiota is a Senior JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) Volunteer under the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers (JOCV) programme, with the approval of the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) of the Prime Minister’s Department (Malaysia), and he will be attached to Wings Melaka for nearly two years.  Noorazah comes from a banking and ICT background but was motivated to join Wings Melaka after helping a nephew who has ASD.  Leong Beng is a trained psychiatric nurse and has a wealth of experience (including 18 years in the UK) in rehabilitation programmes for clients with emotional and behavioral disorders.  He has taken on the challenge to help us in the YAP, working with young adults with Down Syndrome and ASD.  Mr Shiota has expertise handling adolescents with ASD, having taught for many years in a Japanese High School for Special Needs Education.

On-going programmes

We continue to focus on the 3 main phases of our work – the EIP (27 students), SAP (12students) and YAP (4 young adults).  Inquiries about the programmes at Wings Melaka continue to come in, and there is still a wait-list for assessment and enrollment in the EIP because of insufficient staff.

A heart-felt thanks to all our donors

We are deeply touched by the generosity of our donors, some of whom have chosen to remain anonymous.  But we are aware that many of you have only come to know about us through our website or through GlobalGiving, and yet have chosen to support our work.  I would like on behalf of the Board and Staff of Wings Melaka, to express my gratitude and appreciation for your invaluable partnership and support.
