11th March, 2013

KLUANG: The Human Resource Ministry is targetting to get jobs for more than 90,000 housewives this year under the ‘1Malaysia Support For Housewives’ programme.

Its deputy minister, Datuk Maznah Mazlan, said the programme, introduced by the government through the blue ocean strategy, was not only aimed at providing supplementary income for them, but also improve their family economy.

She said last year, more than 110,000 housewives, including single parents and those with disabilities, participated in 10 programmes under the ‘1Malaysia Support For Housewives’.

The programme , introduced in July last year, allowed them to earn between RM600 and RM2,500 a month, he told reporters after the launch of the ‘1Malaysia Support For Housewives’ here yesterday.

She said the programme was carried out with the cooperation of the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry, Defence Ministry, the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry, the Rural and Regional Development Ministry, the Finance Ministry, the Higher Education Ministry, the Prisons Department and several other agencies.

Under the programme, the job scope offered to participants include sewing, making handicraft products, produced agro-based, food and herbal products and product packaging.
