Since 2011, Monfort Boys Town, an ICDL Accredited Test Centre, together with Fraser & Naeve Holdings Bhd (F&NHB), has been providing ICDL programs annually to more than 400 underprivileged youth in Shah Alam, Malaysia.

Aligned with industry demand, F&NHB, the leading food and beverage manufacturer in Malaysia, hopes to empower young people with an internationally recognised computer and digital skills certification through ICDL.

Cariessa Goh, F&NHB’s Head of Corporate Affairs said, “the company is motivated to support this initiative as their CSR effort, as it creates an opportunity for the students to upgrade their IT technical and vocational skills, which will allow them to take on better jobs in future.”

To date, F&NHB has contributed more than 135,000 Malaysian ringgit (approximately €28,000) in funding for ICDL programmes and to equip the training centre with new computers and IT equipment to run the training. Students will go through the ICDL certification training for six to eight months.
