Skills training for youths from low-income families, in Malaysia, is to be funded by the Human Resource Development Bhd (HRDF). The HRDF is allocated a budget of RM30 Million to help fund and support youth skills training. 

The reason behind the fund is due to a low collection of loan repayments to the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK), which the Human Resource Minister, M. Kula Segara has highlighted as being a cause of concern.
