Rural transformation and development throughout the years to ensure that no one gets left behind in our journey towards TN50.
Just imagine, back in the days here in Kampung Timpongah, we had to walk through shrubs and bushes for almost 10 kilometres just to get to school. If we needed to buy our daily necessities,
it was a two hours journey by foot to Kampung Sugud followed by a car ride to Pekan Dongongan where we can finally buy our things. At night we used lamp lights and our water supply was incosistent and sporadic.
Thanks to the government’s continuous efforts, today we have paved roads just like in the cities. A trip to Pekan Dongongon takes merely 15 minutes. Our electricity supply is stable and it’s much more
comfortable for the kids to study. They even receive RM100 in schooling assistance from the government. The government has done a lot for rural folks like us. Thank you!
