“Most important is community participation, which determines the success of the programme, as well as the involvement of government agencies and departments to turn Kampung Pasir Gajah into a new Terengganu tourism destination,” said Ariffin Deraman, State Tourism, Culture and Information Technology Committee chairman, who recently donated RM10,000 to TCS.
