Sam Lee

Sam Lee is the founder and executive director of Hopes Malaysia Welfare Association, a civil society organisation focusing on community development projects to meet the basic needs of the underprivileged rural community. With a Degree in Entrepreneurship from UMS, Sam’s passion for rural development moved him to uplift the underprivileged community in Sabah.

In 2016, Hopes Malaysia was established to serve underserved communities and to help them improve their livelihoods. This is done through Hopes’ sustainable community development projects to meet the basic needs of the underprivileged rural Sabah community.

Within a three-year span from 2016 until 2019, Hopes successfully completed 7 gravity systems, connecting 7 different rural villagers in Kota Belud, benefiting more than 8,000 villagers who now have clean water supply.

The struggles of rural Sabah communities have only worsened. No child, mother or farmer should be left behind. Seeing families finally live with the basic needs resulting from our projects reminds me of why I created and continue striving to make a sustainable impact with Hopes Malaysia.
