About

Giving a helping hand to the refugee kids by teaching English in a fun and informal way through educational games and activities.

Malaysia hosts one of the largest urban refugee populations in the world. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported the presence of 150,200 refugees and asylum seekers in the country, 90 percent of which hail from Myanmar.

Due to the lack of legal recognition means that refugees are unable to obtain residence or work permits; the refugee children are denied formal education because they cannot attend government schools. The core aims and objectives of this project are to help the the refugee children build their confidence and improve their level of English.
