Construction of rumah arau

1MDB has built 12 rumah araus in remote areas of Sarawak to provide basic but comfortable shelter for pre-schoolers while they attend school.  Rumah arau is a halfway house located near a school where pre-schoolers who live too far for a daily commute can seek temporary shelter during the school week. Too young to stay at the school hostel, pre-schoolers stay in rumah araus accompanied by their mothers, who bring along younger children.

Buses ply the routes in Peninsular Malaysia while in Sarawak, a boat operates up and down Sungai Baram.
