Myanmar Education Centre in Kuala Lumpur PDF Print E-mail
There are approximately 30,000 Chin Burmese refugees in Malaysia. With no Government provision for the education of refugee children in Malaysia, a few schools have been set up by the Burmese community for their children to be taught in their own dialects. But many children still miss out on any education.

The school is recognised by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, but outside of school hours students, staff, and their families live at risk of harassment, raids and detention.
