PUTRAJAYA: A special lane will be prepared to help those who left welfare institutions undertake academic or skills training courses, so that they have the opportunity to acquire knowledge for their future, says the Prime Minister.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government was concerned over the issue of empowerment of children who have left the care of the Welfare Department.

He noted that usually, those who turn 18 are no longer under the responsibility of the department, which at times, had resulted in them being left out.

“A special lane will be set up so these children can have the opportunity to further their studies,” he said in a statement after chairing the National Social Council meeting on Thursday (July 28).

The Prime Minister said that government-linked companies would be tasked to prepare funds for their education and also look into their accommodation and other needs.





“The GLCs will also be responsible for their career paths, while the National Welfare Foundation, with the help of the National Registration Department, will act as guarantor to help those without documents,” he added.

The meeting also agreed to the setting up of a gender focal team at all ministries and agencies, whose role is to explore and discover women’s potential in economy, planning, as well as implementation of policies and initiatives.

Ismail Sabri said the meeting also voiced its concern over the rise in cybercrime cases.

According to records, close to 82,000 cyber cheating cases were reported between 2016 and 2021. Losses reported from these cases amounted to RM2.21bil.

“With public awareness on online cheating still low, a masterplan on cyber safety will be drawn.





“This is to ensure that the public will have more knowledge from falling victims to such crimes,” he added.

The Prime Minister said the meeting also noted the Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill passed by the Dewan Rakyat reflects the government’s commitment to tackle the problem.

On July 20, the Dewan Rakyat voted to pass a Bill to enact laws to protect both men and women against sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment cases will be dealt with by a 12-member Anti-Sexual Harassment Tribunal.
