Our work

Besides being educated, we want our students to be happy, healthy, and engaged.

Education services

Our key focus is teaching Chin refugee children. We make sure the have access to education so they don’t fall behind and are prepared for school in western countries.

We run five learning centres across Kuala Lumpur. Our schools teach Chin, English, science, and maths to 500 students aged between four and seventeen years.

Volunteers run our learning centres – they teach, look after day to day operations, and prepare examinations.

Our schools are affiliated with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.

We always need teachers in our classrooms, read about how you can volunteer to teach.

Healthcare

While refugees in Malaysia have access to public healthcare, often Chin families cannot afford to pay for these services. And, a lot of our kids are in bad health. Some students have decaying teeth, eyesight issues, and struggle with body coordination and balance.

With the help of our amazing volunteers and sponsors, we run check-ups for our students to assess their overall well-being and prevent any further deterioration of their health. We have had dentists, nurses, and optometrists volunteer their time to assess our students and provide care.

We rely heavily on the support of volunteers and sponsors to provide these services to our children.

Fundraising

Along with working with our generous sponsors and donors, we organise fundraising events to help raise money for healthcare, uniforms, rent, and educational resources.

We host dinner dances, man stalls at bazaars, and auction off donated items.

While we receive great support, we can’t always give our students everything they need. So, we have to organise our own occasions to fund our activities.

We’re always on the lookout for corporate sponsors for our events and fundraising initiatives. Read about how your organisation can work with us.

Events

We want our students to have a healthy social life. One where they can interact with each another, make new friends, and learn something new.

We organise social events for our students including sports days, field trips to attractions, and drama classes. But, we also arrange events to bring together the Chin community. Outings relive children from their intense, crowded inner-city living conditions, and broaden their learning horizons.

Many local businesses work with us to sponsor our events by providing lunches, venues, and gifts for the children. Even generous expatriates have sponsored weekend trips to nature parks and other activities.

If you would like to help, please get in touch. Or, to check out our upcoming events, see news and events.
