Kampung Kampus: Make A Brick!

A 21st Century Kampung Culture For A Sustainable Future
A nature-inspired campus for holistic education through experiential learning. A low carbon footprint campus that will feature tropical sustainable architecture, building methods and technologies. This will be a campus built by the community, for the community. Through working shoulder-to-shoulder as one, GUI hopes to rekindle not only the Kampung Spirit, but also to instill a strong sense of ownership, resilience and creativity. Kampung Kampus will be a space that everyone of us can take pride in, and love the spirit that it is exemplifying.

Help Ground Up Initiative hit their fundraising goal of $26,000 on Crowdtivate, which represents a small part of of their overall fundraising effort to raise 26,000 square metres of space into the Kampung Kampus. Overall, $3 million is needed to help build Phase One.

There's a Malay saying that goes: "Sedikit-sedikit lama-lama jadi bukit" meaning "Bit by bit, a small mound will become a hill." Every bit counts!
