Kampung Senang is an eco-conscious charity with IPC status reaching out to serve all people regardless of cultural or religious background through compassion-filled charity programs and education on holistic environmentally friendly lifestyles. We are dedicated to the protection of life and our planet. Kampung Senang was established in March 1999 by Joyce Lye, James Low, Dr Swee Yong Peng and their like-minded friends in response to the aging community and the urgent need to reverse global warming.
A world which expresses the essence of Kampung Senang – the Village of Inner Peace: a world where harmony, beauty and unity prevails, where people are inspired to act with gratitude, respect and unconditional love towards life and nature.
To provide compassionate care for people in need, to spur adoption of health enhancing and eco-friendly lifestyles, and to foster harmony within our communities and our planet.
Kampung Senang’s values can be expressed by 3 levels of Harmony.
- Level One: We value inner harmony and cultivate joy and harmony within our mind, body and soul consciousness.
- Level Two: We value harmony within all our relationships so we can act in sincere gratitude, respect and unconditional love towards each other.
- Level Three: We value harmony with Mother Nature who nurtures life on earth unconditionally.
Our twin missions are caring for people and the environment.
Why Care for People?
- We aim to bring back the heart-warming spirit of the kampung, where mutual trust and care, regular bonding and sharing are part of our value and lifestyle.
- As our society ages and becomes more illness prone, we do our part to light up hopes for the elderly, needy and sick of all ages. We strive to promote wellbeing by inspiring people to take personal responsibility for their health and emotions and live a wholesome lifestyle.
- We nurture children through positive thoughts and by planting seeds of human values for a better world within their subconscious. We help raise the consciousness of children by teaching through examples so that they learn to handle the world with compassion and mindfulness as they mature into future leaders of the world.
Why Care for Environment?
- Humankind is an integral part of Mother Nature, so we need to take good care of Mother Nature. In doing so, we are taking care of Humankind.
- Earth is our only home; we cannot afford to defile it! We seek to impart ways of living in eco-harmony in daily life and in community service so as to maximise limited resources.
