In house designed with a touch of the local and Myanmar cultures.
The Chin refugee community, with a population of approximately 49,000, is one of the largest groups of refugees currently living in Malaysia. Fleeing persecution in their home country of Myanmar, the Chin refugees found their way to Malaysia (the majority of them living in the Klang Valley region). However, Malaysia not being a party to the UN 1951 Refugee Convention does not have any legislative or administrative framework for managing asylum seekers and refugees. As such, the Chin refugees in Malaysia lack access to legal employment and the children are excluded from public schools or any form of formal education.
