Give a helping hand to the refugee kids to learn 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. The majority of Myanmar refugees identify as Rohingya (53,900) or Chin (42,710).

Due to the lack of legal recognition means that refugees are unable to obtain residence or work permits. Refugee children cannot receive proper education because they are not allowed to 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. Like most, the structure of the school day is informal and therefore many of the activities involve playing games and learning language through creative lessons. By having fun and connecting with the children in English, you’ll contribute to a fun and engaging learning environment where the children pick up the language in a natural way.



While volunteering you may be involved in:

  • Creating lesson plans
  • Managing English conversation and grammar exercises
  • Teaching informal English classes
  • Playing games and singing songs with the children
  • Other childcare tasks as needed
