‘SEDIC BERSAMA RAKYAT’ - A Community Touchpoint Program

09 March 2018

SEDIC kickstarts its community touchpoint programme, ‘SEDIC BERSAMA RAKYAT’ an extension of a new approach to deliver Government assistance directly to the B40 families. These programmes will be conducted from the 11th March up to the 24th March 2018 in 3 locations nationwide. The areas include Sentul, Lobak and Skudai. For time, date & venue, please refer to the attached table here.

24 March 2018

The objective of these touchpoint programmes is to engage with local residents, identify their specific needs and then connect them to relevant Government agencies, local NGOs, as well as others, to provide resolution. Where there has been a lack of support to address pressing needs, SEDIC’s program will intervene and serve as a platform for locals to seek proper guidance and assistance.

Various agencies shall be involved in these programs to assist, counsel and register all deserving local residents who require assistance involving socioeconomic issues. Among agencies that will take part in the touchpoint programme include Department of Social Welfare, Agensi Kaunseling & Pengurusan Kredit (AKPK), Jobs Malaysia, Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU), Jabatan Kesihatan Daerah and many more.

This is a strategic way to gather on-site support systems that reach people far more efficiently and maximises their opportunities. It ensures active involvement of local and national authorities, organizations and service providers within these localities. This is a game changing approach that would be used to implement the initiatives of Malaysian Indian Blueprint in Indian centric areas around Malaysia, especially the B40.
