KUALA LUMPUR: A project offering jobs with flexible working hours for women will begin next week.
The partnership between Wanita MCA’s women entrepreneur development centre with a South Korean company will kick-start at 10am at Wisma MCA on Tuesday.
Wanita MCA chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said the target group was women below 40.
“They can earn up to RM2,000 a month,” she told reporters after chairing the wing’s central committee meeting yesterday.
“It is for those who need to spend time with their family, but also need to generate income to help support them.”
Between 200 and 250 women are expected to benefit from this programme, as it aims to create jobs and business opportunities, she said.
She added that the centre and its partners would offer job placement, soft skills training and entrepreneurship guidance.
The centre would sign a memorandum of understanding with another company next month to offer similar opportunities.
