Abstract / Synopsis

People devote time and effort to live in this world. They require basic needs to achieve a simple healthy life. However, the rising cost of living has led to an increase in urban working poverty in Malaysia. Low levels of education and lack of employment opportunities are conditions normally associated with the urban working poor. Excess resources used for human survival as well as to satisfy human desires, are largely wasted. This calls for a need to work something out to meet the increasing disparity between basic needs with the surplus wasted resources. This paper reviews the proposal, The Sungai Dua Community Connector (S2CC), which will be a place that connects the urban working poor community with the public. It is a place to achieve the needs of urban working poor and residents around that area, in terms of economy, social and healthy lifestyle. This community connector provides a comfortable space for the urban working poor and upgrades them through different opportunities, especially education.
