BINTULU: About 60 students from all over the country studying at public institutions of higher learning in the state taking part in an adoption programme (Titian Integrasi IPT) are described as little ambassadors representing their respective states.

National Integration and Unity Department state director Rajali Mudin said  participation in the programme during their semester break was a platform to foster better understanding among fellow Malaysians irrespective of their origin.

“This is an opportunity for the students and their adopted parents to get to know each other better,” said Rajali when officiating at the handing over of the participants to their respective adopted parents at Li Hua Hotel.

The programme was first introduced in 2006 and was held in Betong and Sri Aman but this year Bintulu was chosen.

Among the four participating institutions are Universiti Putra Malaysia Bintulu campus, Sarawak Teachers Institute Miri, Industrial Training Institution Miri and Mukah Polytechnic.

Bintulu Rukun Tetangga committee coordinator Mokhtar Ismail and representatives from the respective institutions were among those present.
