Daybreak:

DAYBREAK is an acronym for Disabled Adults and Youths Being Rewarded, Encouraged and Awarded in Kinta. Our story began in 1992. Initiated by the Social Concerns Committee of the Canning Garden Methodist Church (CGMC), we started out in a rented shop house in Ipoh's famous "Old Town" as Daybreak Centre. A first of its kind, we set out to help people with disability to find a meaningful place in society by providing a training ground in specialised skills and a retail center for their handicrafts. Within two years, our trainees grew in numbers and many were successfully placed in permanent jobs. 

Our vision: Empowering people with disabilities regardless of race or creed, to help them become self-reliant, independent and integrated members of society.
