Heyo, I have signed up for a Charity Climb to Mount Kinabalu! *Clap Clap*
It is a Hike to support Orang Asli pre-schools education in 3 villages (one in my hometown, Gopeng) by SUKA Society.
We want to raise RM2,500 (per participants) + 3 sponsorships for Orang Asli children. Help us reach our goal! Here is where you can donate: https://www.simplygiving.com/suka-chari…
Your contribution helps raising funds to engage a teacher, an assistant and support the monthly school expenses for the three pre-schools in peninsular Malaysia. Every penny matters!
Info: For every 100 Orang Asli (aborigines) children entering Standard 1, only 6 will be expected to continue their studies up to Form 5. This equates to a 94% dropout rate.
Appreciate all your support, click ‘Like’ or share it to those who cares, and best if you could contribute to support the children.
Watch the video to know more 🙂
More details about The Orang Asli, The Charity Climb and Orang Asli pre-school Education
Original People “natural people” or “aboriginal people” Orang Asli are the indigenous minority peoples of Peninsular Malaysia. Some of the ethnics live permanently in rural areas while some of them start to live in urban area but still very few.
Most of the ethnics in this group are ‘Kensiu’, ‘Kintak’, ‘Jahai’, ‘Lanoh’ , ‘Mendriq’, and ‘Batek’. Then, the second group known as Senoi is the largest group of Orang Asli with about 54 % of the Orang Asli population. They have six ethnics in this group such as ‘Semai’, ‘Temiar’, ‘Jah Hut’, ‘Chewong’, ‘Mah Meri’ and ‘Semoq Beri’. Finally, the third group is Aboriginal Malays (Proto-Malay) in which about 43 % of the Orang Asli population and the second largest group. The ethnics in this group are ‘Temuan’, ‘Semelai’, ‘Jakun’ , ‘Orang Kanaq’, ‘Orang Kuala’ and ‘Orang Selatar’
To help the community achieve a good and decent standard of living, the Orang Asli community must be empower through better education, as the education is the only way that help the community’s future to acquire much needed knowledge and skills for their survival in the modern world.
The dropped out rate among the Orang Asli schoolchildren, at all levels, is disproportionately high compared to the national average. Studies done by the JHEOA (Department of Orang Asli Affairs) show that the dropout rate among Orang Asli schoolchildren is much higher than the national average. School dropout among the school children of Orang Asli are increase every year as can be shown their participation in secondary and high education level is decrease.
For every 100 Orang Asli children entering Standard 1, only 6 will be expected to continue their studies up to Form 5. This equates to a 94% dropout rate.
