Dato’ Yu Chok Tow
Deputy Chairman of Wanita MCA cum Head of Political Education Bureau
As the saying goes, “It takes ten years to grow trees but a hundred years to nurture people”, therefore developing talented persons is no easy task. Nevertheless, to keep abreast with the changing times, Wanita MCA has conducted a 2 day 1 night political education training course in several states, including Selangor, Penang, Johor, Perlis and Kelantan. The purpose of this course is to strengthen Wanita MCA’s organisation, enhance members’ awareness on party loyalty as well as to upgrade the quality of Wanita MCA leaders.
In addition, we have also begun to recruit and train capable personnel by forming specialised teams to develop women leaders who are eloquent and versatile in political debates. Debates and forums are held after such training to provide a platform for practice and demonstration of the participants’ public speaking skills.
The training of the Specialised Teams will be on-going and will be extended to other states in the country. We hope that members of the Specialised Teams will not only be equipped with outstanding oratory and writing skills but also sensitive and responsive to current affairs with aim of revealing the truth on issues of concern affecting them.
