Bridging urban and rural communities.
A Langit Story
As rural community organizers working for an NGO, the four founding members of Langit came together when they traveled extensively in rural areas along East Malaysia to build gravity-fed water systems for rural communities in Sabah and Sarawak.
While executing the projects, they stayed with the local hosts and it wasn’t long till they formed a familial bond with the locals. That was when they received their Lun Bawang names from the locals- Gituen (star), Ao (sun), Bulan (moon) and Udan (rain), with one common element- Langit, the sky.
1. Improve livelihoods of smallholder farmers in rural communities through increased market and economic opportunities.
2. Achieve sustainable farming practices within our farming communities through adoption of chemical free farming methods, use of appropriate technology and betterment of the environment.
Fair & Direct Trade
Langit’s products are sourced directly from farmers and procured at a fair price- a minimum of 35% retail proceeds go directly to the farmers. Benefiting the farmers directly means improving the living standards of the local community such as being able to afford better education for the children.
