A snapshot of our 2023 Impact Report
Langit's story started with the four founders who worked as rural community organisers. They traveled extensively in rural areas building gravity-fed-water systems for rural communities in Sabah and Sarawak. While they were executing a project in the Lawas Highlands of Sarawak, their stay with the local host family grew into a familial bond. They were each given a Lun Bawang name, Aco (Sun), Udan (Rain), Bulan (Moon), and Gituen (Star) as an initiation into the local community.
As they lived in rural communities, they felt their plight. There is so much potential in the people and the place. Yet, so little has been tapped for the betterment of the community. Hence, Langit Collective was founded to create a sustainable economic ecosystem in rural areas. Langit (The Sky) is the common element that gave rise to the founders' Lun Bawang names. Today, the organization is being led by our 3 active co-founders:
Chan Zi Xiang (Aco), CFO
Actuary turned apprentice farmer. He handles Community Engagement and Field operations
Lilian Chen (Gituen), CEO
Chiropractor turned Customer Relationship Manager. She handles all manner of perplexing consumer demands.
