Not having much money and not knowing how to use money effectively is a detriment for many urban poor families. This programme is designed to reduce poverty through capacity building, equipping participants with basic financial knowledge for better decision-making in their daily life.
This programme was developed in collaboration with our partners with the aim to journey with the poor from depending on monthly provision from generous donors to economic independence. Since kicked off in 2010, over 800 participants in the Klang Valley have undergone the training provided by our network partners. Over 100 of them have since started small businesses or income generation projects.
Malaysian Care started running a similar programmme for the natives in Kinarut, Sabah.
