Women Empowerment Programme with Malaysian AIDS Foundation

Women Empowerment Programme with Malaysian AIDS Foundation

Objectives

 

KPS undertook this programme with the Malaysian AIDS Foundation. The objectives of this programme were:

  • To empower and educate women in society.
  • To shape the future and accelerate the progress of women.
  • To improve the socio-economic circumstances of women with HIV/AIDS especially single mothers by creating opportunities for them in the entrepreneurial sector.

KPS recognises the significance of women empowerment. With this in mind, we are pleased to note our first collaboration with the Malaysian AIDS Foundation ("MAF") or Yayasan AIDS Malaysia in organising the KPS-MAF Women Empowerment Programme. The programme was held on 25 November 2019 at the Women Development Department (Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita).

KPS contributed RM105,710 as sponsorship for 30 selected women with HIV/AIDS, especially single mothers, to attend technical courses to develop their knowledge and skills that would enable them to generate incomes of between RM500 and RM2,000 per month.
