An economic model of shared and inclusive prosperity for the Orang Asli community in Pahang
YKPM empowers and accompanies the Orang Asli community in Pahang in order to adopt an economic model of shared and inclusive prosperity that reflects their values, respects human rights and marks a beginning of their journey to restore their environment.
Farming skills’ upgrade increases production both in volume and varieties. Since the beginning of their collaboration with YKPM, the Orang Asli’s income rises from USD125 to USD500 which improves their nutrition and also their household and farm equipment.
Additionally, with the increased participation of the Orang Asli community, the area where this model is practiced, also increased, leading the pathway towards the inclusion of workers in the informal sector into the formal economy and guaranteeing their social protection.
