Helping Refugee Youths with Project Self Help
A free, quality education at one of Malaysia’s leading universities is now on offer to young refugees through a unique programme called Project Self HELP.

HELP University, in conjunction with the UNHCR, is running the programme to provide a much-needed opportunity for refugees aged 15-24 to access educational and vocational training.  Designed to meet the needs of adolescents and young adults from the refugee community, Project Self HELP aims to equip students with skills that will enable them to secure a better future for themselves.  

Courses are offered in Culinary Arts, Hairdressing, Information and Communication Technology, Multimedia and English.  Students have access to excellent teachers, facilities and resources throughout the programme, with classes held at HELP campuses in Fraser Business Park by some of the university’s experienced lecturers.  

As well as improving English competency and gaining new practical skills, students have the opportunity to build self-confidence, networks and resilience through the programme.

Launched in November 2011, Project Self HELP will run over several years with an initial group of 5000 students.
