Malta Public Transport donates free travel to vulnerable job seekers
Malta Public Transport last week signed an agreement with the Malta Association of Supported Employment under the Positive Supported Employment Program offering free travel to vulnerable job seekers.
Through the PSEP program, vulnerable individuals in the poverty line participate in training sessions that are specifically designed to help them build the necessary skills to find a job. Malta Public Transport will be offering participants free credit on their tallinja cards in order for them to attend the training sessions and then job interviews.
“We are supporting this programme because it encourages people to develop their skills to be more independent. We believe that giving a little helping hand to get started can boost their motivation and actually make a difference,” stated Konrad Pulé the General Manager of Malta Public Transport.
With satisfaction, Marthese Mugliette the Executive Director of the Positive Supported Employment Program maintained that “we are glad that Malta Public Transport will be working with us to help in our important mission.” She added that public transport is the only means of mobility for most of these individuals and such gestures will enable them to integrate better within society.
