Hopes Malaysia
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Poverty Alleviation
Youth & Children

Since 2016, Sabah-based non-governmental organisation Hopes Malaysia has been actively empowering remote and rural villages in Kadamaian, Kota Belud, Sabah, Malaysia, home to over 74 poverty-stricken settlements. Hopes Malaysia has since helped over 10,000 villagers in rural communities via sustainable, long-term projects. The CSO has connected more than 60 kilometres of piping to bring water to rural families and empowered over 350 rural families with lasting food sources as part of Hopes Malaysia's sustainable small-scale farming initiatives. This work has improved the rural community's food security and increased farmers' income, earning excess of RM 7,000 average monthly by selling extra produce at the community produce stall, Gerai Tamu Kita. Three community suspension bridges have also been rebuilt to benefit school children and surrounding villagers.
