PUTRAJAYA – The Permata programme’s website which can be accessed via www.programpermata.my has a new look that features the latest applications including videos, file sharing and blogs to reach out to a wider audience.
The prime minister’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who is also patron of the Permata programme, said the website was launched to provide an effective information sharing mechanism for users.
The new website that encompasses all seven of Permata programmes namely Permata Negara, Permata Pintar, Permata Seni, Permata Insan, Permata Kurnia, Perkasa@Remaja and the Permata children hospital was developed through collaboration between Permata and the creative team from Limkokwing University.
“It is hoped that the website can facilitate a better and faster communication channel between the Permata and its audiences.
“It also enables visitors to access the website at anytime and from anywhere,” she said at the launch of the new website, here today.
In her speech, Rosmah also expressed her hope that the website would not be misused to avoid it from becoming a channel that could bring harm.
“Lately, there have been some people who tend to use (websites) as a means of expressing dissatisfaction, that is feared could cause seditious remarks. I believe that it is not the best way to solve any problem.
“As consumers, we must make sure that it is used to help us access information for the common good,” she said.
In the meantime, Rosmah said Permata was in the process of building a Permata Kurnia centre for autistic children, which was expected to operate in October as well as a Children’s Specialist Hospital, which was expected to be completed in 2017.
The Permata programme that enters its eighth year of implementation this year is the brainchild of Rosmah to ensure that every child is given the best education opportunities, so that they can contribute to the country’s human capital. – BERNAMA
