Problem

Many people want to learn pottery and ceramic making. For some, it is a new craft that could be turned into a business. Among them are those who see such a business as a social enterprise whereby the proceeds could go towards worthy causes. For others, it is to enrich their lives, either as a hobby or for many seniors to help pass their time. By joining such a workshop, social networks could also be developed. Finally, there are those especially seniors who see pottery and ceramic making as a therapeutic activity such as relieving stress or arthritis problems. But such pottery and ceramic classes are not easily or conveniently available.

Solution

New Era University College has a specially designated workshop with equipment and other facilities for pottery and ceramic making. The workshop runs classes for students at NEUC who takes pottery and ceramic making as an elective subject. There are qualified teachers running those courses.
NEUC is conveniently located, being just walking distance from the last MRT station. Thus, thoseliving anywhere in the Klang Valley can reach NEUC by the MRT. In addition, the same MRT station is also a stop for the KTM line.
NEUC’s workshop, facilities, and teachers could be used to introduce proposed pottery and ceramic courses.

Target Beneficiary

A new skill for the needy and underprivileged that they could use to help start a small enterprise to support or improve their position.
(b) Those in social enterprize groups who could use pottery and ceramic making to support their activities.

(d) Senior seniors who could spend their leisure in pottery and ceramic making classes and to develop social networks.

Impact Parameters

Funding for the pottery and ceramic making workshop project will enable NEUC’s Centre for Professional and Personal Development to offer the pottery and ceramic workshops to those who need the course at very affordable fee.
