Refugees in Malaysia
As of end December 2018, there are 163,860 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia. However, as Malaysia is not a party to the United Nations 1951 Refugee Convention, refugees in Malaysia lack access to legal employment and formal education. Due to their status, many families struggle to put food on the table and provide the basic needs for their children.
Solutions For Empowerment
Our solutions focus on empowerment through access to sustainable employment opportunities. Through them, we aim to create positive economic, social and psychological support for refugees, and shed light on the challenges faced by them.Since many refugee mothers can cook great food, and all of us eat daily, The Picha Project was started with one simple mission – to rebuild lives through food.We built a platform where refugee mothers cook their delicious authentic meals, while we market and deliver the food to the public. Through The Picha Project, you make a change to their lives just by enjoying a good meal!
