Call to provide education, employment opportunities to orphans

11th February, 2019


PAPAR: The government and private sector are urged to give education and employment opportunities to orphans in Sabah.

Sabah director of Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (Yadim) Samin Ongki said these children deserve chances in fields deemed fitting based on their respective capacity.

“For example, some of our children are doing diplomas in Haji and Umrah so we call on Lembaga Tabung Haji or other umrah operator companies to consider taking our children to work with them.

“The same goes to other fields; we hope these children will be given the privilege to further their studies and enter the real working environment.

“There is no other way for these children to turn their lives around other than through education and the support from government as well as the community,” said Samin who is also Chairman of Rumah Anak Yatim dan Asnaf As-Sakinah.

He was speaking during the orphanage’s Excellence Awards Ceremony here yesterday.

Also present was Sabah Islamic Religious Council (Muis) Chairman Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Hasbullah Taha who represented Law and Native Affairs Minister Datuk Aidi Moktar.

During the ceremony, a total of 35 As-Sakinah children were given recognition for their personal, academic and co-curricular excellence throughout 2018.

Samin stated that each child received an award although some may not be as successful, to show appreciation towards their effort and motivate them to aim higher.

The children, he said, go to school every day and learn to recite the Quran every night which allows them to grow holistically.

“Some of these children were best students or prefects in their respective schools so we decided to organise a special awards ceremony for them here as what is usually done in schools.

“It is through events such as this that the community would know about the children’s needs and their achievements.

“This is also an opportunity for orphanages to appreciate leaders and members of the society who have continuously helped us because without them, we would not be able to grow and successfully manage this orphanage,” he said.
