23, Founder of Refuge For The Refugees Tel lusa lit­tle bit about your work with Refuge For

The Refugees ( RFTR). I’m the Founder and Di­rec­tor of RFTR , which seeks to raise aware­ness on the sta­tus of refugees in Malaysia, and to pro­vide a holis­tic, cer­ti­fied ed­u­ca­tion for refugee chil­dren. We’ re in our fifth year, and have 35 schools (10 in Malaysia ;25 in Myan­mar) un­der our um­brella. What other vi­sions do you have for RFTR? We’re in the midst of launch­ing a bak­ing school to em power refugee women—to help them find away to sup­port their com­mu­ni­ties while build­ing their skills. How would you en­cour­age peo­ple to join your in­dus­try? We need role mod­els to lead by ex­am­ple. Peo­ple of­ten think that do­ing “char­ity” puts our­selves at risk, but in fact, it’s the most re­ward­ing thing ever!
