Congratulations to Saberkas who has set up their new branches all over Sarawak.  There will be no issue arises when organising activities since all has been made clear.  Youth will be targeted to play their parts by joining Saberkas to ensure a healthy and productive lifestyle.  

Apart from that, the seniors or veterans are also encouraged to bring in expertise identified in their branches to be trained and groomed to carry out the respective assignments when dealing with issues involving the youth.  This is a good way to promote the 1Malaysia  and also living in peace and harmony. 

SC would like to suggest to Saberkas to set up facebook and twitter account in order to reach the youth all across Sarawak.  These are the common tools for networking and socialising in Sarawak

Saberkas to set up 71 branches

BINTULU: Sarawak National Youth Organisation (Saberkas) has decided to set up 71 branches based on the total of State Legislative Assembly (DUN) areas in the state.

OFFICIAL LAUNCHING: Abang Johari (centre) together with secretary general Datuk Aidan Wing (third left), his deputy Datuk Paul Teo (third right) and others cut the cake at the launching ceremony.

President Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said currently, Saberkas has 31 branches based on the number of districts throughout the state.

“This is one of our efforts to improve our role in developing our youths,” he said at the ‘1Malaysia Night’ held by Saberkas Bintulu Division on Monday.  He added that they had also decided to balance the composition of its members between the young and veterans.  He said those who were above 45 years old would train the younger ones in management matters.

“In order to make sure Saberkas remains strong and successful, capable leaders are still needed,” he said.

Abang Johari, who is also the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, said that age 45 was a suitable age gap between youths and veterans in the context of Saberkas.

“At the moment, the average life span of Malaysians is 70 years old,” he said.

Saberkas is a unique organisation made up of various races and therefore, is a good example for 1Malaysia foundation.  He said although the members came from various races, their goal remain the same, which is to work closely to help develop the state.
