Malaysian Child Resource Institute (MCRI) was incorporated in 1993 as a non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting quality early child care and education through training of child-based services.
MCRI supports the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in all aspects of our work. The CRC is the most widely ratified international human rights treaty. It is the only human rights treaty to include civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights for children.
MCRI as an organisation with almost 20 years experience has a proven itself to be an organisation that has the ability to develop civil society from a child rrights perspective. MCRI helped form Protect and Save the Children (P.S. The Children), a major player in the child rights landscape in Malaysia. MCRI was also instrumental in establishing the Montessori Association of Malaysia (MAM). In addition, MCRI, especially through its founder, Mrs Liew Sau Pheng, has contributed to the development of child rights here in Malaysia through numerous initiatives including workshops, training and awareness raising events.
