KKFCG - About Us

Who are we?

At our core, we are a local community-based organization that sprung to life in the year 2001. Our story, however, is woven from the aspirations and collective efforts of the resilient residents of two vibrant villages nestled near the lush embrace of the forest. With over 500 dedicated members, we represent a union of local community self-help groups who have come together to protect and preserve the natural treasures that surround us.

Strength in Unity: The Power of Nine

The heart of our organization beats with the unity of nine dynamic and passionate member groups. Each group brings its own unique strengths, talents, and perspectives to the table. Together, we form a force to be reckoned with, driven by a common purpose and shared values.
