TEN disabled residents of Kepong Beatiful Gate received their certificates after completing a digital media training organised in collaboration with the Titiwangsa Rotary Club and Taipei Peace Rotary Club.
“Before this I did not know anything about digital software.
“I find that it will really help me in future as I can work from home as an art designer” said Leong Yen Fong, who works at the centre.
The 10 completed eight weeks of classes on vocational skills training on Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
Early last year, the Titiwangsa Rotary Club and Rotary Club Taipei Peace presented five computers together with the digital media software to the Beautiful Gate as their first project.
“After our first project we were still not satified and we decided to take one step futher send them for vocational skills training in March this year” said Titiwangsa Rotary Club president Ranjit Kaur.
There are a total of 198 disabled people living around Kepong and 16 of them live at Beautiful Gate.
“We are pleased to see them learning with great effort and I hope everyone of them can put their skill to good use and make contribution to the society” said Rotary of Taipei Peace president Wen-Ko Hung.
Twelve members from the Rotary Club of Taipei attended the certificate presentation ceremony.
