Abstract

Malaysian government has put forward its transformation plan to attain our aspiration of an advanced nation that is inclusive and sustainable by 2020. It is not just an advance in economic but also in social wellbeing including the vulnerable group. Indigenous community is considered as a vulnerable group if their needs been ignored. In the effort to introduce the basic education, not to forget a nonformal education to support and sustain their interest in advancing their well-being through lifelong learning specifically technical & vocational education such as living skills beyond the formal education. This paper will unveil the needs of Indigenous community as active participants in developing a sustainable model for their Community Learning Centre. The main premise of the approach is to consider their local environment for a sustainable non-formal education to support lifelong learning program. The participatory action research method is employed in few Indigenous villages in the Tasik Chini, Pahang. The findings indicate that the model of the learning centre should consider the community environment and their culture with the careful introduction of some modern technology so that they can also be in the main stream of social and economic well-being.
