Powering up a rural Ranau village

KOTA KINABALU: For decades, generations of villagers in Sabah’s Ranau district in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu have depended on candles, moonlight and sometimes oil lamps for light.

However, they will soon see “light”, thanks to Star Foundation’s funding and efforts by a non-governmental organisation – Lightup Borneo – to bring a micro hydro light project to these 40 families in Kg Kie Yit.
