Peter A. Das, President of Persatuan Kebajikan Kasih presenting the graduation certificate to one of the Bridal Make-Up graduates. All Bridal Make-Up graduates also received a bridal kit from Datin Sandra Raj, President of the Rotary Club of Bandar Sunway.

PUSAT Latihan Rakyat Kasih recently held a graduation ceremony to celebrate 22 graduates; seven of whom completed a tailoring course while the remaining 15 completed a bridal make-up course.

“Pusat Latihan Rakyat Kasih is a skills training centre that was started in 2009 by Persatuan Kebajikan Kasih (PKK), a registered non-governmental organisation. The aim of the centre is to provide an opportunity to single mothers, school dropouts and women from low income households to learn new skills which can improve their livelihood.

Besides tailoring and bridal make-up courses, the centre also offers a computer course.

Students only need to pay a minimum fee which goes to the facilitators. Other operating costs, including equipment, are borne by PKK,” said Pusat Latihan Rakyat Kasih chairman Geoffrey Joseph.

The graduates were presented with a graduation certificate by Persatuan Kebajikan Kasih president Peter A. Das. The bridal make-up graduates also received a bridal kit each, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Bandar Sunway.

Those interested to join any of the three courses or to find out more about PKK, contact Victor A. Roche at 012-393 1952 or visit www.pkkasih.org
