Jungle School Gombak

Our Story

What is Jungle School Gombak (JSG) ?

JSG is a leadership experiential empowerment program which uses nature i.e. rainforest in Malaysia as a venue. Hosted by Assistant Prof. Dr Norzalifa binti Zainal Abidin from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), with the help of Major (R) Kalam Pie and the talented indigenous 'hidden gems' i.e master craftsmen and weavers, and indigenous jungle experts. Jungle school helps to empower the indigenous people in Gombak to share their cultural knowledge and expertise.


The programs include survival skills of Orang Asli (Peninsular Malaysia Indigenous People), learning about the use of flora and fauna, the basic skills of food searching and the traditional ways of the Orang Asli hut making, camping, awareness of the rainforest sustainability, law of the jungle, preparing food  like the Orang Asli style and tree planting program. 5 levels of survival course will be offered for the public, since the beginning of early 2014.
