Parenthood is an exciting step in one’s life. It brings with it joy and laughter. But, to many, parenting is probably one of the toughest jobs in the world as it means a lifelong commitment to provide a nurturing and warm loving home for your child.
The decision to be parents and the knowledge to be good parents are now available to guide you through life’s crucial moments. In addition, MSF encourages a healthy partnership between parents and professional establishments such as childcare centres and schools to enable a smoother parenting journey for you.
MSF also works to ensure that our children and youth have conducive environments to grow and develop into good citizens and socially responsible adults.
After the wedding and the thrill of having your own place, the next big decision is whether and when to have a baby. Are you ready? Learn more at Maybe Baby, an interactive parenthood portal which helps couples prepare financially, emotionally and physically for the exhilarating parenthood journey.

We also work with local universities that reach out to young adults, helping them improve their social and relationship skills.

Children need a safe and nurturing environment for optimum growth and development. As far as possible, children should stay with their families in a stable and conducive environment. When families become dysfunctional or unsafe for their members, intervention is needed to ensure that the children are put in a safe and secure place for their well-being.
