Board of Directors:
How We Came About
In 1979, the Malaysian Secretariat of the UN International Year of the Child (IYC), recommended that to commemorate this historical occasion meaningfully, something tangible should be established which could benefit the children of Malaysia, at all times.
In 1989, at the Annual Children’s Day Celebrations in Stadium Negara, DYMM Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Bainun reiterated the need for such a centre, as expressed by Article 13 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, 1989:
“To recognize the rights of the child to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts. To respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activities”.
In response to DYMM Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Bainun’s request, Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun (PKK Tuanku Bainun) was established as a centre where children and youth come together to explore and develop their creativity through Alam Kreatif; a programme developed to enhance cognitive skills. as well as develop their potentials and inherent talents, be it in an open space area or a fully-equipped studio.
The centre is a playground of self-discovery, where learning is fun; where children may develop moral and ethical values and tolerance, and a caring nature will be a way of life.
The centre has facilities and office spaces for lease. The proceeds are then channelled towards supporting the operations, maintenance of PKK Tuanku Bainun and ensuring the sustainability of Alam Kreatif.
