About Event

Refugee children in Malaysia face unique challenges, but they do so with resilience, thoughtfulness, and talent.

Canvassing for Confidence is a collaboration between three schools in Kuala Lumpur for young refugees: Ideas Academy, Malaysian Social Research Institute (MSRI), and Rainbow of Love School.

Seventeen accomplished students who were forced to flee from six different countries have been united by their passion for art. They have planned and taken part in workshops to learn new painting techniques, as well as leadership, professional communication, and marketing skills.

The youngsters have guided the entire direction of the project and made critical decisions about it, gaining expertise in collaboration, leadership development, and event planning.

Their experience will culminate in a public exhibition of the students' artwork at the end of 2018! (Stay tuned!)

To coincide with this youth-led initiative, Canvassing for Confidence is seeking donations to support these three fantastic refugee schools!

All of the funds raised through SimplyGiving will be distributed evenly between Ideas Academy, MSRI, and Rainbow of Love to help them strengthen their programs and commitments to these youngsters. Every single contribution has the power to make a huge difference during these students’ most critical years!

 To give you a taste of the good your donations can do:

  • RM 50 will cover a uniform for 1 student
  • RM 500 will cover school books for 1 student
  • RM 850 will cover a week’s worth of lunches for 150 students
  • RM 1,000 will cover a volunteer teacher’s stipend for one month

Please donate and then share this page with your friends, family, communities, and colleagues! Thank you for your support!
