After a three-year review of its programmes that began earlier this year, the Community Leaders Forum (CLF) will have a new plan of work for the Malay-Muslim community for the next ten years.

Speaking at the tenth annual forum at Fairmont Hotel on Saturday morning, Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs and Minister of Communications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim said the review was a timely effort to introduce new ideas, approaches and ways of engagement, to remain relevant for the community.

The CLF is a platform for collaboration to uplift the Malay-Muslim community, and is administered by self-help group Mendaki. It brings together more than 100 partner organisations, such as mosques, schools and family service centres.

In its ten years, the CLF has reached out to more than 157,000 people through various programmes such as early childhood mathematics education, teen mentoring and strengthening families.
