Through people-development programmes and initiatives, Akar Umbi works closely with the grassroots to develop stronger communities.

Grassroots communities are by definition a group of people who work together through organised local networks or community organisations to create a voice or action for issues and common interests that matter to them the most. 

Communities are essentially people who share things in common. Whether it is a geographical location, work, identity, affinity or affiliation, commonalities define community. Some communities struggle. For communities such as the refugees, the stateless, indigenous people and the urban poor, the lack of opportunities and access to critical resources marginalise them. 

Akar Umbi Development Society (ROS: PPM-001-10-18072021) is a non-governmental organisation that collaborates with the grassroots communities towards ending marginalisation and creating equal opportunities. Through people-development programmes and initiatives, Akar Umbi works closely with the grassroots to develop stronger communities.

We recognise that the experts on matters related to the grassroots community are the communities themselves. We aspire to journey alongside individuals and communities to bring about positive change, find empowerment, create equal opportunities so that people can live in a meaningful and sustainable way.
