Since 2015, PPB has been engaging with Malaysia’s indigenous communities, the Orang Asli, and we remain committed in addressing their need for basic amenities and improving their living conditions. We have identified their most pressing needs – the supply of clean water, sanitation facilities, electricity and proper shelter – and are focusing our efforts in these areas. We believe that the communities benefiting from this programme should be fully involved, and we encourage them to take ownership of their own well-being and living conditions. To this end, and under the terms of our sponsorship, PPB purchases all materials whilst the communities supply the labour.

For the Jakun Orang Asli communities in Simpai and Tasik Cini in Pahang who had to travel long distances to get water for their daily needs, we started by sponsoring the construction of wells to supply clean water. The completed wells attracted more orang asli to build their homes nearby and as usage of the wells increased, bathing in open areas became inconvenient. To safeguard their privacy and promote hygiene, we progressed to sponsoring a bathrooms with two toilets complete with septic tanks for each well recipient. In 2019, PPB sponsored zinc roofs and wood panels to transform their dilapidated huts to a respectable home.

In Gerik, Perak, where clean water can be readily obtained from nearby streams, we sponsored the building of higher dams and piping systems to provide more convenient access. We have also sponsored the installation of solar panels to ensure electricity supply, as well as saplings and farming tools to assist in their farming activities. To date, PPB has invested approximately RM202,000 to sponsor construction of the following:
