FT Ministry providing training for 1,300 disabled people
PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Territories (FT) Ministry is providing training for 1,300 disabled (OKU) people to enable them to become more independent and self-reliant.
Its Minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the two-month special programme kicked off before the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games at a National Service Training Centre near the federal capital.
“As for the programme, we are working closely with the Social Welfare Department and the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council in educating and training them on how to be independent, appreciate themselves and not to be too dependent on others.
“In fact, we have received an overwhelming response (from the participants).
“Hence, we plan to organise more of such programmes so as to assist them in boosting their self-confidence and to become independent,” he said.
Tengku Adnan said this after flagging off 1,300 participants of ‘Larian Ceria OKU’ in conjunction with the launch of the Federal Territories-level Welfare Month here yesterday. – Bernama
