THE Post-Graduate Civic Village Programme, conducted by the Information Department through its Nationhood Unit, Nationhood and Community Division, entered its fifth day yesterday.

In an interview with the Weekend Bulletin, participant and former graduate from Al-Azhar University Mohammad Hilmi bin Yakop said that he was grateful for being given a chance by the Information Department to participate in the programme where the participants attended several seminars by governmental departments and visited several educational locations.

Fellow participant and former graduate from Al-Azhar University Nur Amalina binti Haji Sulong said that future graduates should participate in such programmes as they help nurture leadership and teamwork skills.

The graduates are quartered at the Sungai Kebun Sports Complex Hall, undergoing six days of team-building, sports, charity and cleaning campaign activities.

The programme has been organised since 1976 as a platform to promote employment opportunities, particularly through entrepreneurship and small business development.
