The project to build a place of learning in Kampung Kensau aims to help indigenous people who do not have access to education which are many aboriginal children who drop out and do not have access to education due to the distance traveled to school is very far.Their parents also have to use vehicles to send their children to school yet their parents cannot afford for gas or fuel on a daily basis. As there is no place, they cannot run any programs such as workshops, talks and so on to educate the children in the village. In addition, there is no place for teachers or volunteers to stay to carry out activities in the community.
I see it from the point of view of education which is now lagging behind among the Orang Asli community, especially those living in the interior. Now with the pandemic that hit the world, many aboriginal children and young people are unable to attend classes directly due to the pandemic and even online classes because there is no access to the internet.
With the construction of this study place, it can help them run programs such as classes, meetings, or community activities in the village. This will help a large number of students who dropout of school to get a local education and also their parents will not have to incur expenses for transportation.
SO THAT THEY HAVE A SUITABLE AND COMFORTABLE PLACE TO MAKE LEARNING SESSIONS
TRAINING MANY INDIGENOUS CHILDREN, YOUTH AND PARENTS WITH MORE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO BECOME A BETTER GENERATION.

My name is Miri Adek, i am a volunteer teacher who stands for indigenous education in Kampung Kensau, Pos Ber and Pos Tuel ,Gua Musang.
I represent the Orang Asli community in Kampung Kensau, Pos Ber who runs a program to help the Orang Asli Community in terms of education.
A little bit of my background story, I had to quit school at the age of 14 years old to work in restaurants, factories, and shops to help my family. With no self-confidence, no education, no direction in life, with a low salary, similarly was my low self esteem and confidence.
In 2014, I came to KL at a friend’s invitation to study in SOLS ( An NGO that provides a free education for underprivileged youth) . I learnt English, built self confidence, leadership skills and many things which helped to see the bigger picture and my potential. Realizing that education is very important, I started to work hard on studies and build self-confidence, grabbing every opportunity that came. I volunteered to be an assistant teacher. From there, my teaching experience grew and is now a regular trainer for SOLS. My lifelong dream is to help my family and community Orang Asli.
Currently, I am running one of the centers for the Orang Asli community. I am extremely committed to helping others and the community in terms of Education.
