Since its inception in 2006, DSP’s aim was of retaining the Malay cultural heritage, introducing Malay/ Javanese culture to the general public and also educating youths in the virtues and values of the Malays/ Javanese culture.  DSP has since then progressively move towards these goals, creating a sense of belonging to today’s youths by bridging the young with the “dying” Malay cultural arts and activities, as well as to deter youths from engaging in wayward activities
