Developing self-esteem of youth



KUCHING: Pergerakan Puteri Islam Malaysia (PPIM) plays an important role in maintaining the personality and identity of its young members.

Deputy Minister in the Premier’s Department (Law, MA63 and State-Federal Relations) Datuk Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali pointed out that the challenges faced by today’s youth were quite complex especially with the involvement of social media.

“That is why PPIM needs to play its role in organising programmes physically and collaborate with non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and government agencies in order to elevate the identity and self esteem of its young members.

“Their participation in the activities implemented by the organisation will bring a positive result and coincide with the national education philosophy which wants to produce students who are not only excellent academically but socially.

“In addition, participating in PPIM will be the best medium for them to socialise in this day and age.”

She said this during the Majlis Ramah Tamah Aidilfitri Pergerakan Puteri Islam Perhubungan Negeri Sarawak at Merdeka Palace Hotel on Sunday (May 22).

To show her support towards PPIM’s initiative, she announced an allocation of RM10,000 to finance its activities.

“This allocation is for PPIM to implement various activities and programmes for its members. Moreover, the provision of this fund is also because I am confident that PPIM has very good leadership.

“I hope that PPIM will always be great, active and will always implement programmes to build the identity of its young members,” she said.

Meanwhile, PPIM Sarawak deputy chairperson Dr Asmah Othman stated that as a uniformed body involving secondary and primary school students, students at the Institute of Teacher Education (IPG) and the Institute of Higher Education (IPT), PPIM always strives to provide support and encouragement in terms of members’ welfare.

At the event, Hasidah also presented duit Raya to a total of 53 students.
