The Borneo Post - - NATIONAL -

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
