About AAM

Since 1965, we have served as a community for American families and friends living in and around Kuala Lumpur. 

Our Mission

At AAM we have two primary goals: to serve as a social support network for our members and to give back to our local community. We organize numerous social, educational and cultural events for families and adults that help us celebrate what makes us uniquely American and to learn more about Malaysia. AAM also organizes charitable events, drives, and volunteering activities. We believe that while it is important to enjoy our time here in Malaysia, we must also use this opportunity to give something back to the local community.  Our fundraising activities range from auctions to luncheons to the ever-popular annual Christmas Charity Bazaar.

We really appreciate all those who come monthly to play bingo with our residents. This gives them joy and also breaks the routine in the house. With the help and support which you have given us, we are able to keep this flame of charity burning and continue to keep our door open to receive the poor and needy elderly
