Yayasan Tun Abdul Hamid has embarked on an Empowerment initiative for the financially underprivileged, “Give me a day and I’ll teach you to fish” to equip them with new skills in order to increase their earning potential.

 

So far, three programmes have been carried out, involving a total of 25 participants of varying age groups and different cultural backgrounds. The skills imparted by expert practitioners in different vocational fields include Traditional baking & dessert creations, 3 Dimensional Jelly art creations as well as Decoupage & other craft making skills. While the emphasis is on learning, the programmes are also imbued with a sense of fun and as a form of therapy in assuaging the stresses of daily strife.
