  • Descripción


    Kumaran, the founder is a grassroots social worker who has been engaged in community empowerment work last 7 years in a small town named Batang Berjuntai, located an-hour drive from the capital Kuala Lumpur. He lives with his wife and 2 daughters in a rented house that couples as a community center for the marginalized and disadvantaged families. Together they upscale unused and depleted land into food forest using permaculture techniques with Moringa being their main crop. They work very closely with the local Municipality, Universities, schools and community leaders to reduce the rampant ill effects of social illness such as substance abuse, broken families, school dropouts, jobless, poverty and marginalization that is prevalent here.
    25 families, 5 full-time people and currently hosting 1 volunteer are involved in the project. The project participants are responsible to develop and nurture sustainable moringa farm that can generate enough income to support their family. Volunteers are required to assist the participants in achieving their sustainable development goals.
    During the last 2 years I hosted many volunteers who came randomly here.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Engage constructively with people from diverse backgrounds of race, religion, culture, social standings and ages working to achieve one common goal which is a better future.

    A great place to kick- start workaway experience in South East Asia by exposing oneself to the philosophical insight of volunteering in an environment that is truthful to the reality of unfortunate communities.

    Experience deep connections, learn the art of giving without glorifying the giver and be immersed in high impact exchanges with the locals. Past volunteers have enjoyed mindfulness and clarity in ones action and inaction after volunteering with us.
