Waqaf Community Centre
The Waqaf Community Tailoring Centre (PJWK) at Taman Bukit Dahlia, Pasir Gudang is JCorp’s initiative through WANCorp with the objective to help its participants to generate income through entrepreneurship based on their talents. The premise and equipment are furnished and funded by WANCorp. With 16 participants of single-mothers, the Centre had received substantial order placements for baju kurung, baju kurung moden, abayas, baju Melayu and curtains. Support and facilitation services are also provided through a leader, chosen to oversee the Centre’s marketing, administration and financial management.
The Centre also provides a Kids’ Corner for the participants’ children to do their homework, readings and rest while they wait for their next school sessions.
Resulting from the success of the first PJWK, WANCorp expanded the programme with the establishment of the second PJWK in December 2014 at Taman Bukit Tiram, Ulu Tiram with eight participants and an instructor. Starting January 2015, the tailoring centre opened its doors for bulk bookings. This centre focuses on a more complex orders like wedding dresses, corporate attires, school curtains and bulk orders.
