The Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia is ready to work with corporate or private companies interested in contributing funds to build more PoliKom houses, especially in the state.


Its deputy minister, Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching said the construction of PoliKom houses only costs RM25,000 for a house that has three rooms, one toilet and one shower room which can be completed within 30 days.

"PoliKom houses can assist people in the target group, namely single mothers and people with disabilities who require a more comfortable place to live" she said.

She said this when handing over the keys to the Polikom Houses in the Tawau Parliamentary constituency in Kampung Batu 22, Balung on Sunday, June 11.

The PoliKom project was proposed by the Minister of Higher Education which posed challenges to polytechnic and community college students to build houses for the target groups.

In the meantime, Mary Yap said the PoliKom housing project can also help students and lecturers of polytechnics and community colleges, especially in the field of engineering in proving their ability as competitive students in producing cost-effective houses within a short period.

Meanwhile, Mary Yap, who is also the Member of Parliament for Tawau, said the building of the houses was also proof that the Barisan Nasional government was caring and did not forget the welfare of the people in need.

Tawau is among the two locations for the PoliKom houses pilot projects with another in Besut, Terengganu.
