The Story


E-lluminate is a social enterprise with the mission to empower refugees in education by placing quality teachers, equipping vocational skills, and instilling entrepreneurship in refugee learning centres.

Quality Education

Employ accredited teachers to deliver quality teachings with structured curriculums to refugee children.

Vocational Trainings

Empower refugee students with practical skill sets to ensure security and sustainability in life.

Social Entrepreneurship

Instil social entrepreneurship in refugee children to become changemakers and empower refugee community.

Education. Empowerment. Equality.

Plight of Refugees

With the war and prosecutions happening in their origin country, millions of refugees flee to save their life and family. Malaysia alone has 155, 880 refugees registered.

1951 Refugee Convention

However, Malaysia is not a signatory of 1951 UN Refugee Convention. Malaysia does not, and is not obliged to, provide education for refugees. The refugee communities have to run learning centres themselves.

Refugee Learning Centres

They sustain only by donations from the public. Therefore, they financially cannot afford to hire teachers and only depend on volunteers for the classes. However, this leads to inconsistent teaching and thus poor quality education for the students.

Initiatives by E-lluminate

E-lluminate is a social enterprise with the mission of sustainability development for refugees by placing quality teachers, equipping vocational skills, and instilling entrepreneurship at refugees learning centers.

Hope for the Refugees

Refugee children and youths will be well educated and developed with skills to explore entrepreneurship opportunities to not only becoming independent but become changemakers among refugee community.

By placing quality teachers, equipping vocational skills and instilling social entrepreneurship, E-lluminate ultimately aims to establish sustainable models for refugee learning centres in the long term.
