Education for Malaysia’s Refugee Children

There are tens of thousands of refugee children in Malaysia, none of them have access to formal education.

Fewer than half will have a chance to go to informal refugee schools, like the Top Achievers Academy near Kuala Lumpur.

Even so, schools like these rely almost totally on donations or fees to survive, and not every refugee family may have the money to give their children a chance at getting an education, and access to a better future.
