Small-scale Solar Solutions through KampungKu

KampungKu is a series of renewable energy projects dedicated to resolving the energy-related needs of Orang Asli communities across Malaysia, by providing small-scale solar solutions. With help from the Ecotourism & Conservation Society of Malaysia (ECOMY) and other partners, ten easy-to-use, mobile photovoltaic cells and solar lamps were installed in cooperation with the Orang Asli of Kampung Dedari — a village community located upriver from Kuala Tahan and across from Taman Negara — in less than six months. Following the success of that project, more projects were initiated to help other Orang Asli communities, and even more are hopefully on the horizon. We find out more from Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of the Ecotourism & Conservation Society of Malaysia (ECOMY) and Arran Rahul Hashim, the Lead Project Coordinator and Co-founder of Kampungku.
