GIFT OF LIGHT PROJECT

Bringing life to dark nights

Kampung Kuala Sumatalun, Pagalungan is a village located almost 250 kilometers from Keningau Town. The total population of Kg Kuala Sumatalun is mroe than 100 people where it is inhabited by 20 families. The majority of the residents are Muruts and 95% of them are Christians.

Uniquely, this village has a long house with 20 rooms inhabited by about 20 families. A few villagers build low-cost houses on the banks of the river. The main problem of Kg Kuala Sumatalun is the lack of electricity supply from SESB (Syarikat Elektrik Sabah Berhad) due to the distance of the village which is too far inland.
 
In this regard , Regional Development Community Berhad (RDC) takes the initiative creating a project to install a generator set (genset) to help illuminate the darkness of night in Kampung Sumatalun. RDC is looking forward to any institution to fund 8kW capacity electric generator and the wiring works.
 
Besides community in Kg Kuala Sumatalun, RDC intends to extend the project to other rural communities in district of Persiangan and sub-district in Pangalungan. In total, RDC plans 5 projects in immediate term.
