Carpentry skills are being transfered to the Oramg Asli villagers. These skills will eventually allow the villagers to improve their self sufficiency and standard of living.
Training classes are held at Tapah and Ranau where trainers use their personal woodwork equipment to share their expertise during the training classes.
Kerwin Chong is one of the trainers who has devoted his personal time and equipment to share his expertise with the villagers.
Kerwin, who has been a carpentry enthusiast for over 10 years, runs UrbanWoods as his profession.
