Spreading the Word on Do’s and Don’ts


Perak Women for Women Society (PWW) conducted another successful workshop for students in Taiping recently. The society’s mission to teach youngsters on differentiating between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour was made easier when they were invited to speak to students of SMJK Hua Lian, Taiping.

The PWW team engaged the participants, which consisted of lower secondary students numbering some 130, at the school hall. Subjects on personal safety, respect and friendship were discussed. The objective was on creating awareness in youths, especially girls not to be too trusting and not to give in to sexual advances too easily.

To reinforce the lessons, a short film entitled, “Abang Angkatku” was screened. The film depicted some unsavoury situations which youths need to learn to avoid. Students’ participation was active, proving once more that education is an effective tool to counter social ills.

The society is prepared to provide classes for free when requested. Call PWW at 05-5469715 for details.
