Helping Kuala Rajang youth pursue higher education

Date:

KUCHING: It is the ardent hope of Kuala Rajang assemblyman, Datuk Len Talif Salleh to see children in the constituency succeed and secure a better future.

He said his service centre had worked towards the goal by doling out assistance to students who wanted to pursue tertiary education.

“Thankfully, while the assistance is not substantial, it has benefited more than 1,584 students in Kuala Rajang with RM664,800 distributed.

“The application for assistance can be submitted to my service centre at any time even after the students have receive offers to continue their studies.

“This is regardless of them going to public or private institutions of higher learning or universities outside the country,” he said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Aug 11).  

Len said the assistance had been enjoyed by a number of students and he pledged to help more in the future.

To a public query of why the assistance was limited to voters in Kuala Rajang, Len, who is also Urban Development and Natural Resources Assistant Minister, said similar allocations were given to elected representatives in their respective areas.

“Some have asked why is this assistance limited to voters and their children in Kuala Rajang only?

“I would like to thank those who raised this issue which has raised awareness among the local community and helped a lot in promoting the scholarships that I have given since 2011.

“I was elected as the people’s representative in Kuala Rajang and was required to shoulder this trust fairly and transparently.

“I want to see all the children of Kuala Rajang, wherever they are,  succeed and enjoy  more secure lives,” he said.
