    The Global Peace Foundation works with some of the most underserved indigenous communities in Malaysia. Though the initiative focuses on basic needs such as clean water and electricity, our long term engagement with the Orang Asli has given us deeper insights into their life and the stumbling blocks to their development.

    This presentation will offer various anecdotal observations we collected at these villages, with focus on WASH, energy, education and livelihood.

    Brochure and seminar details available here.
