Living Literacies – The Orang Asli Literacy Project

This paper highlights the challenges and experiences of the researchers in an academic institution w here the research project which initially began as part of an academic re search initiative expanded to helping a marginalized community in need. As social s cience researchers in a technological university which emphasizes natural science research, opportunities and moti vation to carry out social research is a challenge. Furthermore , as minorities among academicians from the Engineering and Technology discipli nes, obtaining funding and carrying out community ba sed research is also difficult. In this paper , we share the conception of Living Literacies , a literacy programme for the Orang Asli , an indigenous community in Malaysi a, and share the challenges we faced in executing this project.
