What We Do & Why We Do It

Fugee School is a refugee learning centre, recognized by UNHCR Malaysia. As the right to public education is stripped away from refugee children, learning centres, like Fugee School, provide children with basic education at the primary and secondary level. Fugee School is a safe space for a child to enjoy their childhood as they explore and learn. At the tertiary level, students struggle to gain enrolment into Universities due to financial burden and lack of information. 

Our HiEd Scholarship program and youth programs aim to tackle these issues and increase graduation rate. Education is important for refugee children to assimilate into society, improve individual well-being and gain financial stability. With support of our various stakeholders, Fugee has created a complete educational journey for a refugee child to learn, grow and become successful agents of change. 

Meet Our Team

With a mix of refugee, local and international members, the Fugee team consists of 6 core members and 14 school teachers. A world in which every individual has the right to quality education and job opportunities to participate in and contribute to all facets of life.

Refugees in Malaysia 

Malaysia is not signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol. Refugees here do not have access to education, formal employment and healthcare. Even so, there are over 180,000 refugees in Malaysia and 46,000 of them are children. The community lives in constant fear and exploitation in various sectors including work and education. It is by the intervention of UNHCR Malaysia, local NGOS and social enterprises that the community is able to thrive in these unstable conditions. Malaysia is a transition country for refugees from all around the world. Families wait for resettlement – a process which can take years.
