KINARUT – Montfort Youth Training Centre (MYTC) Sabah successfully held its 10th Open House and Carnival at its Kinarut main campus Oct 11, achieving their set target of RM230,000.
The proceeds would be utilized for the training expenses of the trainees, estimated at the cost of RM1,300 per trainee per month.
Sixty stalls were put up featuring home-cooked food items, second hand products (for jumble sale), flowers and plants, products from the welding and carpentry workshops made by the trainees of Montfort, religious items and others.
MYTC was privileged this year to have the presence of Br Yvon Passebon, Vicar General of Brothers of St Gabriel from Rome, who officiated the event. He was accompanied by Br Maurice Herault, Brother in-charge of the Secretariat for Partnership. They were in the state attending the various events of the institution as well as taking the opportunity to meet the community.
Once again, Montfort puts on record their appreciation and gratitude for the support of Archbishop John Wong, parish priests, parishioners, volunteer stallholders and benefactors who have come forward to make this event memorable and joyful occasion for all the visitors.
Currently, Montfort takes in 160 trainees for their industrial experience program at the main campus in Kinarut, and 60 students at San Damiano Boys Hostel Kiulu and 30 at the St Mary’s Youth Hostel Sandakan for the rural youth development program. – MYTC/PAF
