“Once suitable programmes are set up, we hope the (programmes) will equip our youth with skills and knowledge for their future,” said the secretary.

The MoU will outline comprehensive programmes to complement existing programmes run by the council.

Twenty-five youth recently attended the council’s first Islamic calligraphy workshop aimed at showcasing the uniqueness of Islamic calligraphy which is an important element of Islamic art that needs to be preserved.

The MoU is a symbol of strong support for the youth to not only be active at the village level but also outside of the community, said Zaini.

Their youth are also helping to man their new shop located at level 1, the Souq of the Airport Mall, he added.

The shop, launched last week, offers many of the village’s products such as a variety of biscuits and dried seafood crackers.
