The development of excellent human capital, knowledge, skills and good personality is a main agenda in the education system. The Malaysian government has been focusing on the human capital development not only to certain groups, but includes all sections of the community regardless of ethnicity, religion and race. In the context of Orang Asli communities, various programs have been developed to ensure education among Orang Asli in line with the rest of communities in Malaysia. However, until now educational achievement among Orang Asli still in a low level. A very highlighted problem involves the issue of dropouts, low grades in the exams, the problem of school absenteeism and problems related to teaching and learning (Ramle & Abdul Razaq, 2012). This project was implemented to help reduce the problem among Orang Asli education especially in Terengganu. The objective of the program focused on raising awareness of the responsibility and the importance of education among parents, helps to reduce the school dropout rate and absenteeism Orang Asli students to school and improve academic performance among them. The project is implemented by adopting intensive classes to students, raise awareness and motivation to students, raise awareness and the importance of education to parents, strengthen PIBG and the ecosystem of learning and teaching. The results of the project showed increased student attendance to schools, parents and local community responsibilities and greater concern about their children's education. Some of them began to send their own children to school. The percentage of school attendance increased and students are better prepared for school.
