We are committed to our social responsibility efforts, ensuring that KWAP’s stakeholders, particularly retired civil servants, are well-prepared for retirement and can sustain an active lifestyle. Today, we provide them with the knowledge needed for a fulfilling retirement through various activities.”
“By implementing programmes such as Karnival MyPesara, we aim to cultivate more productive individuals, contributing to the development of sustainable human capital and the nation, in line with the main pillar of MADANI Malaysia, “Sustainability and Compassion”.”
In addition to the Larian MyPesara event, the two-day Karnival MyPesara taking place on 25 and 26 November 2023, showcases 50 exhibition booths and offers various exciting programmes, including free health check-ups, financial literacy programmes, Bazar MyPesara, discussions on retirement-related topics, and many more.
Datuk Hajah Nik Amlizan Mohamed expresses her hope that the Karnival MyPesara will provide opportunities not only for retirees but also for the public to learn various new knowledge, such as Palliative and Hospice Care, Successful Entrepreneurial Talks, financial management sessions and more.
In summary, throughout 2023, KWAP has prioritised the needs of public sector retirees and improve their quality of life through several initiatives, including the Contributors Forum, Jelajah MyPesara, and Anugerah MyPesara.
The Anugerah MyPesara is a prestigious award specifically designed to give recognition and appreciate retired civil servants who have made a positive impact in the fields of Entrepreneurship, Education, and Social and Community Service.
