A little about PKPDK Sayangku
PKPDK Sayangku is a community centre set up under the auspices of Jabatan Kebajikan Malaysia [“JKM”].
Formed on 01/01/2013, PKPDK Sayangku was fully operational with effect from 01/01/2014, starting with 24 disabled trainees, 4 officers and 1 supervisor. The objective and focus of PKPDK Sayangku is the rehabilitation, education, pre-vocational and vocational training to the disabled, covering a wide range of therapies. As at August 2019, there are 32 disabled trainees registered at this centre with 5 officers and 1 supervisor.
All the disabled trainees registered with JKM and receiving the services of a PDK, are given a monthly allowance of RM120.00, which is deposited directly into the trainees account with Agro Bank.
The categories of disabled trainees registered at the centre include persons with the learning disability, visual impairment, physically disability and Cerebral Palsy.
With the combined efforts of the officers and trainees, PKPDK Sayangku produces products such as Serai juice, Black Cane Juice, table runners from rosette leaves, to name a few.
