Official Visit of Deputy Prime Minister to Sekolah Tunas Bakti KL (8th November 2018)
Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun had the honor of sharing our work with YAB Dato’ Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Deputy Prime Minister who is also the Minister of the Department of Women, Family & Community Development during her visit to Sekolah Tunas Bakti where the Centre provides sponsored classes to 90 children.
YAB Dato’ Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said “The community also needs to play a role in providing these children a second chance in life so they may also contribute to the nation.” She views NGOs as one of the facilitators for the children to be reintegrated into the society.
In 2018, it has been a pleasure for the Centre to be able to provide creative programmes such as Visual Arts, Traditional Dance and Culinary classes to the youths. It has been a wonderful journey to see them grow in their own ways while developing their self-confidence, ability to appreciate working in a team and strengthening their moral and spiritual values.
Sekolah Tunas Bakti is an approved institution for education, training and detention school for children (boys only) established under the Section 65 of the Child Act 2001. It provides rehabilitation to youth who are involved in minor criminal offence.
