Help this great organisation to keep on helping children in need of education.
This is a story of a girl that was forced to leave her country at an age of 6, she is now 12 years old. She finally can go to school now and learns for how to read and write. This is something that we already learn in Europe at an age of 6! Due to the law, refugees are not allowed at public schools like here in the Netherlands and are not being recognised. Families have to live with 12 people in one room and have to pay rent and eat with 50 euros or less a month.
IDEAS Academy is a learning centre for marginalised and vulnerable children based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the students are refugees and stateless persons. It is one of a small number of schools in Malaysia which provides secondary school level education for refugee children. Besides education, IDEAS Academy also gives them a safe area, where they can be themselves and play. Outside the children are not safe and have the possibility to get arrested by the police. This organisation is really more than just a school, so please help these children to give them education and a safe place to be.
