Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran said the project would begin in his parliamentary constituency in Ipoh Barat, whereby service counters would be opened near wet markets to allow the target group to be reached.
"The whole idea is to go down to the ground to meet with the people and provide assistance to those faced with problems.
"Often times, the target group does not have the time or know how to get help," he told reporters after launching the service counter in Kampung Tawas on Saturday (July 7).
He said the service counter would be located at a designated area in his constituency during the weekend once every month.
"Next month, we'll hold another programme here. We'll start at about 8am where it's the peak time when most people go to the market," he said, adding that among the services related include Social Security Organisation (SOCSO), jobs-seeking and skills training programmes.
"If it is well received, we will go nationwide at all constituencies, including Pekan," he added.
