Malaysia is not a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention, so refugee children are considered illegal immigrants and they have no access to government-funded schools in Malaysia whether they are registered with UNHCR or not. Many attend informal learning centres or community-based classes organised by the community. According to the United Nations refugee agency in Malaysia, the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), there are a total of 150,379 people of concern. 25,499 are under the age of 18, with 23,823 of school-going ages but only 30% are enrolled in 133 community learning centres around Malaysia.

Whether we assist or not, the learning centres are still going to be there and the communities are struggling from month to month trying to sustain the school in providing education to their children so that one day, it could make a difference and change their fate in the future. In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 in ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning, Humanity Heroes adopted some existing learning centres and assist them to improve everything by rebranding it to School of Life and streamlining the school system by phases so they are all more structured and standardised.

We hope this will build confidence and open more opportunities to partnership and collaboration with corporations and organisations which should lead to a better sustainability and overall quality of education delivered in the schools. The name School of Life is chosen in the spirit of learning everything about life and open to all, regardless nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, age or any social identifiers. So, the learning will not just be in the typical classroom setup but hands-on activities inside and outside of the schools too. We are also aiming to provide education and life skills to adults in the community in the future.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

-Nelson Mandela
