KOTA KINABALU: Montfort Youth Training Centre (MYTC) continued its effort to raise funds to accommodate underprivileged and neglected youth through its 11th Charity Golf Tournament here on Saturday.

Headed by Chairman of Montfort Board of Governors, Tan Sri Bernard Dompok, the annual charity event held at Sabah Country & Golf Club saw 135 participating players from Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and all over Sabah who had come together to raise funds to sustain 260 youth under Montfort’s care including 100 school-going youth at two of their rural hostels in Kiulu and Sandakan.

The centre that relies on general public in corporate sectors, foundations and individual donors for funding requires an expenditure budget of RM3.5 million this year alone to upkeep youth aged 13 to 19 in their technical skills training and residential care.

This year, corporate sectors continued to lend their support with Datuk Aloysius Tan, Manager Director of TBMC Sdn. Bhd. sponsoring Hole-in-One prize which is a cash prize of RM10,00 for Hole Nos. 8, 12 & 17.

Meanwhile, Rintis Malay Motors Sdn. Bhd. took part in the charity by sponsoring one unit of Proton Saga Standard CVT 1.3 VVT Engine worth RM41,800 as the Hole-in-One prize for Hole No. 5.

Some well-known hoteliers from as far as Kuala Lumpur had also contributed in the charity, sponsoring a wide range of lucky draw prizes including a 42” LED TV sponsored by Mr. Willie Wong, the organizing chairperson.

A non-governmental welfare and technical training institution, MYTC was established in 1999 which aimed to cater the needs of underprivileged and neglected youth by equipping them with adequate technical skills for gainful employment in the future.

The centre which offers two years of skills training on Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Carpentry and Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Mechanics prioritizes youth coming from single parent families, school drop-outs and those from remote areas of Sabah and Sarawak for its selection of trainees.
