THE MIC’s Putera wing added another feather to its cap with the launch of the Segambut Putera MIC division recently.
Putera MIC has a total of 20 divisions nationwide and the Segambut division is the first to be set up in the Federal Territory, with more divisions coming up.
Putera wing national coordinator P. Kamalanathan said more divisions would be set up in the FT in the next few months, and they had been going on a massive recruitment drive since the wing was created in 2007.
“The wing was created to provide an avenue for young Malaysian Indians to help the community in social and educational issues.
“Those aged between 18 and 30 are encouraged to take part in social services and welfare work and carry out programmes that benefit the community,” Kamalanathan said.
According to Segambut Putera MIC head S. Yogendran, the division has a total of 50 active members who are professionals, and they hope to carry out their social obligation via education.
“That is our core aim – to help our youth in education, ICT and career development,” he said.
“We want to steer them in the right direction. If they want to pursue their studies, set up a business or pick up computer skills – we can help,” Yogendran said, adding that members would guide these youngsters so as to minimise, and ultimately rid, the community of social problems related to gangsterism, and drug abuse, among other things.
