KUANTAN: The Pahang Foundation has expressed the intention to allow children of the Moro community in the southern Philippines to pursue higher education at its subsidiary, the IKIP College.
Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob said today the assistance would be similar to that accorded to Cambodian Muslims to attend various courses at the college.
The assistance would be in support of the Malaysian government's efforts in helping to broker a peace deal between the Moro community and the Philippine government recently, he added.
"It is one of our efforts to help the Moro community redevelop by giving the children an opportunity to pursue higher education at IKIP," he told reporters after attending the inaugural convocation at the IKIP Advanced Skills Centre (IASC) at the Pahang Foundation Complex, here.
Adnan said the foundation would also explore opportunities to generate economic activities in collaboration with the Moro administration.
He also said that the RM30-million IASC campus under construction in Kampung Cinta Manis, Bentong, could accommodate about 1,000 students at any one time.
At the convocation, Adnan presented diplomas and certificates to 160 students who had completed their respective courses at the IASC. Bernama
