Astro Awani: Orang Asli Development in Malaysia

Hana Ismail talks to the headmen of Kampung Ulu Tual, Jenita Engi of Center for Orang Asli Concerns (COAC), and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Datuk Nicol David about the developmental challenges faced by the Orang Asli of Malaysia, the importance of education, and their hopes and dreams for the Orang Asli.

Bumiputera minorities in Sabah and Sarawak and the Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia remain the most vulnerable ethnic groups in Malaysia. This field visit aimed to provide a platform for the Orang Asli community to share their experiences, challenges and hopes; as well as to promote an inclusive future that enables all communities to participate in and benefit from the country’s growth and development.
