I received a letter from Sabah Monfort Youth Training Centre - (MYTC) recently. MYTC is a branch from Monfort Boys Town - (MBT) Shah Alam, Selangor. I thought this time I should do something to help our fellow countrymen in East Malaysia.

MYTC is set up for the less fortunate youth, especially those in the rural and interior areas that are being left out in the main stream of education and other opportunities.

Those who wish to be admitted for a straight two years residential course must be from poor and needy families, age between 16 to 19 years old.

MYTC is accredited to Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (Department of Skills Development) and the courses offered are:

1. Automotive Mechanics - Students are taught how to carry out general service, maintenance and repair of petrol and diesel engines. They also learn to detect and trouble-shoot the faults in various systems and components of a motor vehicle.

2. Carpentry - Students are trained in basic, as well as advance skills in furniture-making using both hand tools and wood working machine.

3. Welding - Students are trained in Arc-welding and various Gas-welding techniques.

4. Computer Maintenance and Graphic Design & Multimedia.

The objectives of MYTC are:

1. To provide industrial skills training and general education. (English Language and Computer Knowledge)

2. To provide residential care and promote holistic development.

3. To empower Youth to realise their full potentials.

MYTC is doing its share to produce literate and ethical youth with high morals. MYTC is established for the underprivileged youth who have no where to turn to for their hidden potentials to bloom. Armed with technical skills and character building training upon graduation, MYTC youth are geared up for thriving employment and good citizen.

With the press reporting daily of our youth frittering their time away by taking drugs, ecstasy pills, smoking ganja and contributing the number of "Mat Rempit" (hell riders) on the roads, why not we suggest sending those fitting ones into places like MYTC to produce a healthier and dynamic bunch of Malaysians?

In view of the increasing number of students every year, Monfort Youth Training Centre needs your help to realise their new campus at Kinarut, Papar District at a cost of RM1.5 million. For the sake of our youth and the good of the family and society, please do donate generously.
