Thank you for helping refugees attend university


Dear Project of the Month Club Member,

The opportunity to pursue higher education is extremely limited for refugee youth living in Malaysia. Less than 0.1% of young people who are refugees in the country are enrolled in universities.

LIBERTY TO LEARN BERHAD’s project Send a Refugee Youth in Malaysia to a University is committed to providing scholarships to student hopefuls who demonstrate financial need, excellent past academic performance, and community impact. These scholars are also given access to volunteer programs, mentorship, mental health support, internship placements, and extracurricular activities to increase their community involvement and personal development.

Programs Director Abdulmajid Chahrour was happy to learn that Send a Refugee Youth in Malaysia to a University was chosen as the December Project of the Month. 

“This is a testament to how the power of a community can uplift projects around the world—in our case, collective efforts to send more refugee learners to higher education institutions. We are very thankful for your support,” he shared.

The funds will be used to help provide 15 full scholarships to refugee learners in 2023. Abdulmajid said the funds will also allow the organization to provide additional support to the scholars in the form of mentorship, career counseling, and community project opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support in uplifting projects around the world. 

With gratitude,
Donna Callejon
GlobalGiving Interim CEO

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
