PUTRAJAYA: Women must help the Government realise its goal of instilling noble values in Malaysians.
The Prime Minister’s wife Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood said members of Puspanita – the Civil Service Women’s Association – could play a prominent role in this.
“The Government has implemented various programmes towards enhancing the integrity of Malaysians. This is because it views seriously the task of enhancing noble values to ensure that negative habits will not destroy our next generation.
“In my opinion, Puspanita, whose mission is to make our women more competitive, knowledgeable and skilful, should play a prominent role in helping the Government realise this goal,” she said when launching the new Puspanitapuri building in Precinct 8 here yesterday.
Also at the launch were former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Ali.
Endon, who is the patron of Puspanita, said the body could enhance and instil noble values by organising programmes for its members.
She said she also hoped that the newly-constructed RM37mil building would become an incentive and motivation for all members to participate in its activities.
She added that Puspanita hoped to rent out rooms and the hall in the new building to supplement the organisation's income.
“This building is not fully equipped but it has facilities almost akin to that of a five-star hotel,” she said.
