In 1999, a few of us with disabilities decided that the way forward is to take more control of our lives and to work towards equal opportunities, self-respect and self-determination. The result of that meeting together was the birth of the Independent Living & Training Centre to promote Independent Living movement within Malaysia.
Independent Living and Training Centre Malaysia is a charitable organization and was established in September 2001, which was formed BY the disabled and FOR the disabled to provide free services for their members who are living throughout the county for more than twelve (12) years.

The ILTC Malaysia is a non-profit and voluntary organization, and is entirely run on charity and depends mainly on the public support to carry out its work. Therefore we are always seeking funds and volunteers to help us to achieve our aims and objectives.
All these services are presently being provided free to more than one hundred and ninety six (196) non-resident trainees whom we are assisting to lead an independent live. Besides those regular training programs, we also provide food and lodging to fifteen (15) resident-trainees.
We therefore need to raise funds approximately RM 120,000.00 to maintain and continue the programs and training to the disabled community.
The Patron of ILTC is the Former Rawang State Assemblyman Dato’ Tang See Hang had donated a piece of land located at Kampung Sungai Dua Tambahan in Rawang, Selangor Darul Eshan to build our training centre and while ILTC added this by buying an additional two (2) lots with comprises total land 13,400 Sqft.
To date, ILTC needs approximately for the entire project is RM950,000.00 to erect the building with facilities suitable to carry out our activities. At the moment, the ILTC building committees have raised funds more than RM550,000.00 through various projects. However, it is still short of another RM400,000.00 Therefore we need to raise more funds to construct ILTC building to enable all our activities under a more conducive environment with a new building of more than 7000 Sqft was taken up for construction.
