“Sekata is a crime prevention programme that focuses on, among other things, addressing basic issues such as capacity-building and empowering women. Family security is the responsibility of all.
Thirty-eight non-governmental organizations (NGOs) received allocations totaling RM3.2 million to organize various activities in a bid to combat crimes and social problems faced by family institution in the country. The allocations were channeled through the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) under its Crime Prevention: Family Safety Is Our Responsibility (SEKATA) program.
