PPB has been engaging with Malaysia’s indigenous communities, the Orang Asli, since 2015 and we remain committed to helping address their need for basic amenities and improving their living conditions. We have identified their most pressing needs – the supply of clean water, sanitary facilities, electricity and proper shelter – and are focusing our efforts in these areas to meet their basic needs. We believe that 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, we started by sponsoring the construction of wells for supply of clean water. As usage of the wells increased, and bathing in open areas had become inconvenient, we progressed to constructing bathrooms and toilets complete with septic tanks. In Gerik, Perak, where clean water can be readily obtained from nearby streams, we have 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. To date, PPB has invested approximately RM120,000 to sponsor construction of the following:

Year      
2015 10 wells 158 individuals in 49 families Simpai, Pekan
2016 10 wells 244 individuals in 70 families Tanjong Gong, Tasik Cini
2017 8 toilets & bathrooms 158 individuals in 49 families Simpai, Pekan
3 toilets & bathrooms 244 individuals in 70 families Tanjong Gong, Tasik Cini
Dam with piping system & solar panels 3 villages Gerik, Perak

As part of our continuing commitment to improve the livelihoods of Orang Asli, we have in the pipeline, a project to contribute saplings and farming tools to assist them in their farming activities.
