Giving a voice to the little people – that is the objective of the Consumers’ Association of Penang. And that’s what they have been doing since their establishment in 1970. CAP main concern is ensuring the right of every consumer to basic needs such as food, housing, health care, sanitation facilities,public transport, education and a clean environment.
Through research, educational and representational activities, they hope to influence people at all levels: so that policy makers in government look at how their development policies affect ordinary people, and give priority to basic needs; so that ordinary people think more critically and have the strength to resist trends and practices (e.g.: smoking, gambling) that can only make their lives more deprived.
To promote and strive for a more ecologically sound and socially just society.
