Education for Chow Kit kids

KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry is planning to set up a school offering free education to homeless children in the Chow Kit area.
The school, called the Jalinan Qaseh Guidance Centre, would offer training in basic skills such as reading, writing and mathematics at primary level, said Educational Planning and Research Division director Dr Faridah Abu Hassan.
“The centre would be able to give these children basic education so they can learn to be independent and not be a liability to society,” said Dr Faridah in her speech at the Chill and Cheer@Lorong programme at Lorong Haji Taib 3 in Chow Kit here yesterday.
She said the Chow Kit area was chosen based on the results of a collaborative study between Unicef and the Education Ministry, which revealed there were many homeless children in the area who were unable to get proper education due to poverty and the less than conducive environment.
She said the ministry had so far identified over 500 children of primary and secondary school age without proper education in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
Dr Faridah said the school, expected to be built in Jalan Raja Muda, was still in the planning stages, and she hoped to propose the idea to the Cabinet later this year.
She added that the planned school capacity at this point was about 500 students, and there were also plans to build a hostel for them.
She said there were also plans for the school to adopt a regular curriculum with various subjects.
“We also hope to provide skills training at the secondary school level, so the students would have something to fall back on when they leave school,” she said.
Dr Faridah stressed that education was important for the country’s future.
“Education is the main method of social advancement in the Government’s efforts to eradicate poverty and develop our society,” she said.
“The Education Ministry is therefore carrying out various efforts to ensure citizens get a complete education by providing equal access to learning, so no group is left behind.”

30 more centres for drug addicts

80PC SUCCESS RATE: 336,000 have been treated

KUALA LUMPUR: THE National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) plans to set up another 30 Cure & Care Service Centres for drug addicts this year because of its encouraging success rate.
AADK director-general Puan Sri Zuraidah Mohamed said the programme had recorded an 80 per cent success rate since the first centre was opened two years ago.
"We plan to open the centres at drug hotspots around the country. Many state governments have asked us to set up centres," she said after launching the Chill &Cheer @ Lorong in Chow Kit yesterday.
Present were Yayasan Salam Malaysia board of trustees member and Media Prima Berhad executive director news and editorial operations Datuk Ahmad A. Talib and other AADK officials.
The Cure and Care Service Centre is jointly run by AADK and Yayasan Salam. It offers help to people, such as drug addicts, sex workers and the homeless, through 39 centres nationwide.
Among the programmes available are prevention of relapse and job placement. More than 336,000 people have received treatment.
Zuraidah said other countries had shown an interest in carrying out similar programmes.
Meanwhile, Ahmad said the programme was a paradigm shift in encouraging people to overcome their addiction.
He said the centres treated addicts as "clients" so they felt more receptive towards weaning off drugs.
"Our aim is to rehabilitate them. We give them back their self-esteem and change them to be productive and confident."

I remember when you said the kids told you "kitorang bukannya semua jahat macam dalam movie Chow Kit tu"

That is deep, I wonder how the kids really feel like, having people around spreading stigma about them
