Putra club to spread iM4U nationwide
SUBANG JAYA: The Putra 1Malaysia Club aims to be the main agency to spread the word on the 1Malaysia For Youth (iM4U) initiative, said club president Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.
He said the club would visit each state to introduce iM4U and spread the Prime Minister's message of empowering youths to better the country.
“We will not only address those in rural areas but urban youths, too,” he told reporters yesterday.
He had earlier opened the new canteen at SMK USJ 12 and distributed motorcycle helmets to several students and staff members.
Abdul Azeez said the new canteen, which the club sponsored, showed what the Prime Minister aimed to achieve under the 1Malaysia slogan.
“The Prime Minister said People First'.
“This is proof that 1Malaysia is not merely rhetoric,” he added.
Launched by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Sunday, iM4U aims to instill the spirit of volunteerism among Malaysian youths.
A total of RM100mil has been allocated to fund youth volunteer programmes.
In addition, 100,000 motorcycle helmets will also be distributed under iM4U.
