Being an IT student myself I've seen many student suffering without a laptop. Some have to work everyday while studying to pay for their rent or food and still unable to purchase a laptop. Children on the other hand are unable to work and can't purchase a laptop for their education needs due to their financial issue. Thus, I joined AIESEC's Speak Up program hoping for a change that not even one student would be left out as a minority because each and every student has the right to study!

I started teaching at Manna House Centre and immediately fell in love with the keen innocence and eagerness to learn of the children. Naturally each of them is different in their own way, meaning each one's learning method is also different. I have seen my colleagues and I dedicate our time and teach them and that has helped immensely. However, I cannot turn a blind eye to other factors with will affect their living as well as ability to learn effectively. These issues can be fixed with your financial support through provisions such as food, clothes and even stationery. It will all go a long way in assisting the children and their families who at times can barely survive. You and I can lend a hand to give them a chance to a better future. REMEMBER, WE DO NOT GIVE BECAUSE WE HAVE BUT WE GIVE BECAUSE THE NEED ARISES. This is a secure charity fundraiser page and rest assured all your proceeds will go to serve their purpose. Thank you!!

Like all children, refugee children have the fundamental right to life, survival and development to the maximum extent possible. However, living in exile, refugee children are often denied normal childhoods.In Malaysia, 70% of 25,499 refugees under the age of 18 have not received proper education because there is no legal framework to solve their situation. Most attend schools which are sponsored by non-governmental organizations and even then, there are simply not enough available resources to provide all the children with their most basic needs. To make matters worse, many refugee families were severely affected by the pandemic.Refugee children in Malaysia are denied access to the formal education system, and thus obtain education via a limited number of community-based learning centres funded by Non-Governmental Organisations.

"Our children are our only hope for the future, but we are their only hope for their present and their future."-Zig Ziglar.In Malaysia, 70% of 25,499 refugees under the age of 18 have not received proper education because there is no legal framework to solve their situation. Most attend schools which are sponsored by non-governmental organizations and even then, there are simply not enough available resources to provide all the children with their most basic needs. To make matters worse, many refugee families were severely affected by the pandemic.Let me introduce myself before my story begins. I'm Cha @ Chiam Siang Teng, a Taylor's University student who's currently in my semester break. In order to spend my long semester break, I decided to join AIESEC in Taylor University, which provided me with a project "Light A Refugee's Dream". My initial idea of joining this project was just to educate the children and make friends, but now … I've seized an opportunity to help them by raising funds for Manna Home Learning Center (MHLC), which accepts all refugee children, regardless of their nationality, race and religion.The reason why I am fundraising for these refugee children is because I hope it helps the centre to sustain its welfare and operations. It can furthermore improve education access and learning achievement among refugee children. Till now, I am still moved to hear the sweet voice of children calling me "teacher". It gives me a sense of pride and happiness where I'm able to bring a little impact to them. A brilliant smile often appears on their faces, which makes my day.To not let their smiles disappear from their faces, let's raise funds together! Every single money donated was really appreciated. Thank you so much for the contribution!P.s. For every RM 100 raised, I'll run 1 km! NO JOKE;) or Any challenge you would like to see me doing, feel free to dm me on Instagram if we reach & break the target hehe!

      The pandemic has deeply affected us in many ways and some communities experience bigger impacts which includes refugees. The lives of refugees had already been difficult before the spread of the coronavirus because they lack access to basic necessities such as education and healthcare. Some at the young age of 8 or 9 are required to start working to contribute to their household income instead of enjoying their childhood like most of us. This has once again made me realize the privilege we hold, hence as an act to give back to society, I have chosen to start raising funds under the Aiesec LARD(Light a refugee's dream) program and this page would play as a platform for those who wish to contribute help these children. In light of raising funds for the refugees to receive proper education, I have started a challenge. The challenge is:-For every 100 ringgit raised I will run 2km.  The results will be recorded on the Nike running app and will be posted on my Instagram (ewnice_okn). As for the donation proceedings, donors can rest assured that all funds received will be processed by SimplyGiving. It should be noted that a 5% service charge will be billed from the total amount received and the remaining will be transferred directly to Manna House Learning Center.

I'm a local virtual volunteer for the Taylor's University AISEC's Light A Refugee's Dream program. I'm educating the year 4 children of the MANNA House Learning Centre (MHLC). I'm starting this fundraising campaign to do my part as a fellow human to help this children in need to able to obtain their necessities in this testing time. Due to the problems in their respective country a lot of people come over to our country to seek refuge. The children of this refugee's have a difficult time obtaining the sam quality of education as us Malaysian. I believe this factor should not hinder the children from obtaining the education their have the rights toward. What is MANNA House Learning Centre?

I am Kainen. And this is the story of how I came to set up this fundraiser: In my pursuit of a higher education and of a future career pathway, I realise that I am enabled by education - enabled, empowered and emboldened - to make decisions for myself, decisions that will ultimately carve out a pathway for me and help me find my place in this world. 'Education is the key' is a cliché because it is true; yet, for some, education is a privilege, and not a right. For marginalised communities like refugee children, education is not a given. Due to the lack of governmental efforts and legal frameworks on this matter, it is up to us to ensure that these children are provided with quality education, amongst other basic rights and necessities. How could we allow ourselves to live in a world which deprives children of the basic right to quality education? How could we allow any child to thread through this world without the opportunity of acquiring skills and knowledge from education? How could we say that we are educated if we do not try to provide educational opportunities to others? This is why I set up this fundraiser - to provide quality education to those who are brushed aside by our government. Your donation matters, however small, because collectively, we can ensure that the basic rights of refugee children are met, and secure a bright future for them even amidst individual and global challenges. x Kainen.

The pandemic era has made refugee children lives even more difficult in terms of gaining access to education, most families are struggling to make a living due to lack of financial support, most of the refugee children have to work in such a young age to earn money for their living. Besides, refugee children also have to face their struggles such as missing out their education as they are not allowed to enter Malaysia's government schools, so they can only obtain education through informal learning or community based learning centers. Moreover, language barrier has been one of the problems for refugee children to communicate with their teachers and the locals, this then shows how education is important to them. Here is where donation can make an impact whereby the funds will be contribute to a better quality education materials for refugee children.

Love is a form of gratitude that can be given in any form you wish.Everyone wants joy, peace and happiness with a healthy living .Yet, not all are blessed with it all the time and at times they cant effort for it. Thats where I got to know that a small act of kindness could make a huge difference in anyone's life. This is where my realisation begin when I first started to volunteer in myself in noble acts to help our community out in anyway I could, to see the smile in their face.

I am joining the [Light A Refugee's Dream Winter 2021] and fundraising for AIESEC Malaysia. Two-third of refugee children might never get to secondary school, according to the UN refugee agency (UNCHR). The child refugees have no access to the official school system of the country. Without education, the children will become vulnerable, and their freedom and dignity will be stolen. They deserve a quality education.Please send your help and light up their dreams! #LightARefugeesDream

It's funny how a normal person like me would end up typing this message to the public. I was that person who SEEN those donation pages, WANTED to help out, but FEEL that I'm too broke to make differences. The mindset of "my small amount of donation will not make any differences" has won over my generous heart that has the eagerness to contribute to those needy. Yes, I admit that I am kind of selfish or greedy. But if you were me, would you also hesitate? This is my first time joining AIESEC (a Non-government organization) as one of the local virtual volunteer. I was assigned to 3 high schooler from Pahang and since then, they brighten my mind. At first, I thought that students would be like "Ah, I'm forced to come, please don't call my name, leave me alone." But, it turns out that, they were more energetic, cheerful than I expected. I can see their keenness to move forward, their thirst to learn new things, and their desire to improve themselves by actively engage in the Winter Speak Up Project. I know that I can see potential in them. However, the issues are: How many people realizes their potential and their desire? Who give them chances to flourish in the education field? Where can they find hope to continue striving if there are limitation in education? Are they the chosen one, or are we the chosen one?Here, I'm fundraising under the Speak Up Project organized by AIESEC Taylor's University. Our objectives are to build confidence and explore leadership in students, to teach them the STEM technical skills, and to reach the charity goal of RM10,000 in order to give those underprivileged students (B40 students) a laptop each. I hope that the person reading this could donate for the B40 students. Appreciate it, and wish you a best of luck in everything.

I came to join "Speak Up" because I have always love to involve and helping school children in any way possible. Not just to guide them but to lessen the gap between students in different stages of learning. During my time in primary school, I always wanted to engage with students in tertiary level. To make friends and to see what is real life on their point of view especially on education. 'Speak Up' reminds me to stay connected to education industry and get to know secondary students on their level of thinking, how their mind works when dealing with problems or how to deal with them in general. Keeping in touch with all generations could teach us a thing or two in knowing how the real world and real people works. I lost my father during pandemic, in 2020. I lost myself for a moment trying to switch my thoughts on dealing with lost and grief. As what he thought me to always do good and always help people in need. Hence, that is why I am here. To continue my father's legacy on doing good deeds to everyone, especially towards students, children that are in dire need of good support system. Let us band together and support this good cause. Give them a proper tools to learn.

  As of the end of the December 2021, there are around 180440 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia. There are around 155,400of refugees and asylum-seekers from Myanmar, the remaining individuals are refugees and asylum-seekers from 50 fleeing war and persecution, including 6,730 Pakistan, 3,720 Yemenis, 3,300 Syrians, 3,210 Somalis and others. Among them, there are 46170 children below the age of 18 (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Malaysia, n.d.).   From a refugee and activist from Myanmar, Htoon Htoon Oo, who is currently based in Malaysia now described a few issues faced by refugees in Malaysia: 1. Malaysia has not yet ratified the 1951 Convention Relation to the Status of Refugees. The absence of a legal framework for recognizing refugees and asylum seekers has caused problematic and exploitative conditions to them because they don’t have formal rights to work, no legal status, not benefiting from any legal protection and causes them to expose to the risk of arrest, detention, and refoulement. 2.They have limited civic freedoms. Although there are many different organisations of refugees available, however, when it comes to expressing their concerns and organising their struggles, the reality is that they are not able to do it freely. There is common fear among refugees regarding the consequences of speaking up about their struggle, expressing their concern, and claiming their rights. Besides, Htoon Htoon Oo also mentioned the challenges that the refugees and asylum-seekers are facing under the pandemic: 1.Refugees are forced to work for underpaid wages, take unpaid leave or resign just because their refugee status. Loss of jobs is also one of the challenges that they are facing. 2.Fear of safety. They are fear of being targeted by the police and immigration officers due to a lack of clear policies and awareness among law enforcement officials on what a refugee is. They might be fined by the police, or even detained at the police station for several days. 3.Most of the refugees are also facing mental health issues such as depression because they are mentally exhausted through thinking of ways just to survive and remain safe (CIVICUS, 2021).  Based on the information above, we know that the lack of legal absence has caused the children who are below 18 could not enter public schools in Malaysia. They could not enjoy the same benefits as any Malaysian does – Equality Education in Malaysia. I feel so sad for them as they were excluded by the society. ‘All men are created equal’, refugee children should get access to the same education as all other Malaysians too! Hence, this is the reason why I join the Aiesec Malaysia Light A Refugee’s Dream Project during this January 2022.   To help them to reduce their burden on surviving in Malaysia, it is encouraged that you could donate to us so that we could have enough fund to purchase stationery items for all the children, and even buy food for the all the families.   Reference: Civicus (2021).

It is quite surprising that a large number of students in Malaysia do not possess a smartphone or any sort of gadget for themselves especially now in an age where technology is thriving. I personally succumbed to online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic and I know how difficult it is to cope with studies just sitting in front of a screen and sometimes, students shy away from engaging in class and understanding topics completely. I can only imagine the difficulty of students with no devices to merely attend a class. Malaysia is vastly evolving into a better nation day by day but we should not forget about our children. They are the future and we need to ensure that they receive the right education. We can do this by helping them create a path to reach out to their educators and engage in class activities. Let's come together and help these students in need to lay out a better path for their future.

There’s a boy in my neighborhood that I seldom meet, once I asked how his SPM preparation was going and he said he had not been studying for the past 7 months because he didn't have a device to attend online classes with. This had truly made me reflect on the opportunities I have been presented in life and what I should be doing next to help my community better. Thus, the reason why I joined AIESAC’s Speak Up. The project's goal is to educate students, particularly those from the B40 community and raise funds to get them laptops for school. My fundraising online page intends to raise RM1000 to support AIESAC for their continuous efforts to provide a better education system to the youths. I believe everyone deserves a quality education, so join me in this so that we don’t have to see another student lose their future.

The Winter 2021- Speak Up Project! is focusing on giving students an additional knowledge on variety of skills. During the lockdowns, many students have gone through many difficulties including the facility of owning a laptop for themselves, some of them use their parents' laptop. Lately, for students who were effected by the flooding too have lost many treasured items. Therefore, through this project we are hoping to help students who struggle more with no laptop or smartphones to attend their virtual classes. #GetThemLaptops - an initiative launched by AIESEC in Taylor's University to gather funds for the purchase of laptops to B40 students.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view this website. I'm Hui Ling, and I'm currently participating in AIESEC's Speak Up Project, where we're gathering funds to purchase laptops for B40 students. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is compelled to stay at home, which makes it difficult for some groups of people. Since everything is now done online, an electronic device is a must-have item. E-learning is increasingly widely employed in schools, yet some pupils may not have access to an electronic device for e-learning. Furthermore, a laptop generally costs more than a thousand ringgit, which may be out of reach for others. Therefore, it would be great if you could contribute some. For your information, I would also challenge myself to a one-minute plank challenge for every RM10 donated. Lastly, with each donation we receive, we become all that much closer to our target. Thank you for making a difference.
