New Transformational Enterprise

A new hair salon, Cut X Dignity, with a difference was officially opened today by Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity) in Sentul Boulevard, Kuala Lumpur on 2 June, 2017

Cut X Dignity is a full-service training hair salon modelled to develop Dignity’s students in foundation hair dressing skills. This is run in parallel to the academic syllabus for quality education provided by Dignity to empower the underprivileged to break out of poverty.

Cut X Dignity is the second Transformational Enterprise launched by Dignity following the first of such enterprises, Project B cafe, launched in 2015. Project B is a training cafe for the students to learn the hospitality F&B skills.

At the launch Rev Elisha Satvinder, Chairman and co-founder of Dignity said, ‘we are very happy to announce that after 20 years of providing quality education for the poor we are putting another initiative into place, the Transformational Enterprises, to help the marginalised youths to become more employable in a very competitive marketplace’.

‘The other Transformational Enterprises which are being developed at various stages are tailoring, urban gardening, woodwork, a bakery and Arts and Handicraft centre. In the very near future all these will be launched as full-service self- sustaining Transformational Enterprises providing vocational and entrepreneurial training for Dignity’s students’.

At Cut X Dignity the students receive two full days of training on Wednesdays and Thursdays under the supervision of two professionally trained senior stylists with many years of experience. For the rest of the week Cut X Dignity is open to the public as a full service hair salon.

When the 6-month training programme is over the 20 students currently enrolled in the course will be able to cut a basic hair cut (for male and female), wash, blow dry and style for both short and long hair, colouring theory and application. When the trainees graduate they will be able to work in any commercial salon as hair stylist apprentices.

Cut X Dignity is funded by The Bursa Bull Charge 2016 run event .
