PWW, the abbreviation for Perak Women For Women Society, is a registered not-for-profit and non-political NGO that was established in 2003. PWW has always depended on donations and sponsorship from well-wishers and generous donors to fund its activities, with focus on enhancing the status and lives of women in Perak, irrespective of race, religion and social background.

The PWW Shop, which officially opened to the public on 22nd June 2018 by Pn. Kavaramma Subramaniyam (Director, Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita Perak), is PWW’s empowerment project in a bid to be self-sustaining. This shop sells new and pre-loved items from clothes to costume jellewery, knick-knacks and household items, that have been donated by supporters.

In an attempt to be financially independent, proceeds from sale of items from The PWW Shop are used to continue with extending assistance to women and children who are victims of abuse, violence and discrimination, as well as provide counselling for them.

As you can see, every sen earned from the shop helps to sustain the good work of PWW. Therefore, well-wishers are encouraged to donate items to The PWW Shop. Do take note that only articles which are still in good condition and usable are accepted.

We can also support PWW by buying from them, and giving these items a new home. After all, goods sold at The PWW Shop go at a steal, from as low as RM2. Once in a while, there are branded items up for grabs as well.
