SHAH ALAM: The MCA will expand its women and children’s aid services throughout the country by the end of May.
Wanita MCA chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said the party decided to expand its programme following its success in Selangor.
The programme will begin at the division level outside Selangor, she said at the Selangor MCA Wanita wing’s fourth meeting here on Thursday night.
Chew said a series of training programmes would also be carried out from April to July to train workers involved in the project.
Some 170 workers are expected to take part in the training at Wisma MCA.
Chew said some 100 workers from the unit in Selangor would take part in the training and provide input that they gained from their experiences.
She said the Women and Children Aid Unit was established in April 30, 2006, in 16 divisions in Selangor and it had helped many women facing various problems.
Yesterday in Kuala Lumpur, Chew invited young women to apply for full and partially-sponsored programmes to be trained as beauticians.
The programmes – Apprentice Aesthetic Therapist Certificate and Aesthetician Certificate Course – are a acollaboration between Wanita MCA and Beaubelle Academy of Cosmetologists & Management.
“Successful applicants will also be given a monthly allowance from the Government,” she said.
