Education should be and is a basic right for all children, but that’s not necessarily true for refugee children here in Malaysia. They can’t access government schools at any level, and are not always able to afford the fees of attending private schools. There’s where refugee learning centres step in to do what they can to fill in the gaps. Dr Sharuna Verghis, co-founder of Health Equity Initiatives and Teacher Sam, Principal of the Kachin Refugee Learning Centre joins us to share the challenges that refugee learning centres face, and how education can change lives.
