The World-View of Native on Empowerment in Poverty Development Programmes (PDP)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The main focus of this research is on the relationship between the perception of empowerment conceptualised by the administrative agents or the government (macro level structure) with the perception of empowerment constructed from the world-view of the native community itself (micro-level structure). This is a theoretical gap to be explored in this study. Accordingly,this study will use the interpretative approach using abductive logic basedon idealist ontology and constructionist epistemology. This study was conducted in the Serian District, Sarawak, Malaysia and is one of the four districts that is under the administration of Samarahan Region. The population of this research are the participants of poverty programme who live in the rural areas. A total of 25 respondents were involved in this research using the non-probability sampling technique that includes quota sampling, purposive sampling and theoretical sampling. The size of this study's sample was achieved through continuous support toward measurement or criteria of theoretical saturation. Data in this study was collected by using the in-depth interview technique and informal group discussion. The findings show that the meaning of empowerment of native community refers to a process when individuals or a group is at the stage where they are capable of using their ownability, capability and self-capacity. In addition, it also involves their capability in understanding, interpreting problems that are faced and subsequently defining the needs as well as translating the meaning of these needs into the process of action through participation in the organisation itself.
