To donate the Rp. 40-million fund, RRC obliges all of the villages to submit a proposal of the fund implementation planning that explains in detail on what the fund will be spent for. Therefore, each funded village has different purpose and use as it is based on the need of the people living in each village. In the meantime, there are five other villages that haven't finished the proposal of the fund implementation planning; Cempaka Baru, Baung, Jahitan, Tanjung Rengas, and Sungai Perlu.

The CEO of RRC, L.

Rimba Raya Conservation.
