To design & build sustainable trails to connect communities and ensure protection and preservation of green spaces and forest in an urban setting.
MyChangkul is a social enterprise set up to design and build sustainable multi-use trails in urban green spaces and protected forest. The mission is to build trails and connect the communities around it to ensure its preservation and also protection for future generations.
MyChangkul has already built 5 mountain biking, running and hiking trails at Kota Damansara Forest in Malaysia that are being enjoyed by hundreds every weekend. These trails are built in by interest group volunteers and paid trail builders from the indigenous group that lived around the area.
The first three trails were mostly funded from grants acquired from GEF Smalls Grants Facility and the two later trails were privately funded by corporations.
MyChangkul hopes to inspire others and to promote the building of such trails in other urban settings to protect green spaces and forest reserves. Contact us if you like to build a community forest with trails.
Building and construction of all our trails are by hand with light tools and without heavy machinery to reduce the impact to the forest ecosystem.
Our trails are designed using sustainable building techniques as stipulated by an international trail building association. We also employ 100% of out builders from the Temuan tribe to provide them a livelyhood and also connecting them back to the forest.
