“I will also continue to nominate and facilitate meaningful programs and projects into my constituency.
“I intend to strengthen our Micro Level Social Safety Net Programmes by providing interventions on small and medium scale to the most vulnerable and dependent groups in our constituency.
“I plan to introduce the Work Experience Programme (WEP) as an effective approach to building confidence and promoting self- esteem in individuals who have never worked in a formal setting before. The idea is to instil office etiquette and work value to improve employability profile. We will also provide incentives to those who embrace the programme,” she said.
