KUALA LUMPUR: There are many moneymaking opportunities for single mothers if they have the right mindset, Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said.
She said they needed to pick up some soft skills like decorative furnishing and curtain-making, which would allow them to work from home.
The main problem facing single mothers is lack of skill and confidence.
Having the right attitude is important they need to have the go-forward mindset and pick up new skills.
If they let things like money, marketing skills or time stop them, they will not get anywhere, she said.
To give single mothers a boost, the wings MPTC Lifelong Learning Centre, in collaboration with AX Home Deco Sdn Bhd, is providing a decorative furnishing and curtain-making course.
The course is part of the MCA Lifelong Learning Campaign.
The course is also ideal for those who want to enhance their personal development or those interested in learning new ways to beautify their home, said AX Home Deco consultant Alexis Lim.
All that the participants need is interest and the ability to sew a straight line on a sewing machine, she added.
The course is divided into four phases.
Participants who have successfully completed all four phases in the course can participate in MCA's vendor programmes and become fabric sales agents for AX Home Deco.
The course costs RM485 per person, but Wanita MCA will be offering 10 scholarships to deserving women on a first-come-first-served basis.
