AU2 Committee Rukun Tetangga

Area:
At the end of upper Sungai Klang stretch near Kuala Ampang

Community’s achievement:
The residents of Rumah Pangsa AU2 were highly supportive of the ROLPOP initiatives. They actively participate in ROLPOP centralised programmes such as Community River Monitoring Programme and Recycle Art & Craft Workshop. 

They also actively organise localised activities and programmes with central aims to raise awareness and capacity in recycling and river adoption. One of their successful recycling initiatives is establishing a Used Cooking Oil Collection Hub. From January to July 2015 alone, the hub collected 360 KG of used cooking oil from over 200 households. 

The community also adopted the stretch of riverbank by organising Gotong Royong programme with the locals and planting some vegetables and trees. This initiative led them to adapt “Love My Drain” campaign as their annual initiative. The campaign aims to engage locals to clean their drains and keep it clean. 

Like a snowball, the proactive measures taken by the AU2 community led to a collaboration with Maybank (Group Risk) for Maybank CSR Programme. It allows their monthly activities such as river monitoring and gotong-royong to be financially supported.
