Mission Description

Raise awareness of the presence of Orang Asli and their wants and needs.

Our purpose is to build awareness for the Orang Asli and provide some form of societal value to them. During the event, participants will be able to have the opportunity to understand the situation the Orang Asli face in Malaysia and their daily activities. 

The highlight of this event involves a competition aptly named “Build A Home”, it requires participants to use ice cream sticks to build a model house. The objective of this contest is to recognize the importance of the basic need of shelter in a form a house and build relationships with marginalised communities. Around 3-4 people in a group will be tasked to build a house with ice-cream sticks and the home built will reflect the real conditions of the Orang Asli, as most of their houses are built from wood.

  • I have learnt and gained a new perspective in life through this workshop! Never know a simple basic need that I'm possessing now, is so hard for the marginalised people to have it. I appreciate what I have now more than before :)
    Would like to join this kind of impressing activity in the future for sure!
    LOVE & PEACE!

    This workshop was a great experience for me to learn about the orang asli. I never knew about their circumstances until i went to the workshop and i found out that many of the stereotypes against them are wrong.
