United Learning Centre

Who are we

United Learning Centre (ULC) is a volunteer driven centre providing children of Burmese refugees with an education. These children do not have access to schools in Malaysia due to their parents’ refugee status.

The centre provides education for the children to help prepare them for resettlement in a third country, without this education, especially learning the English language, most of these children end up begging on the streets or be victims of human traffickers.  School equipment such as computers, books and meals, as well as activities to complete the education process for a school going children, are all provided by ULC through public donations.

Our needs

Located just behind Imbi road and the busy commercial area of Bukit Bintang, ULC runs SOLELY on public contribution, such as books, food, furniture and volunteer teachers. Currently over 100 children are attending classes at ULC, which is supported by SIBKL.

Funds for rental and utilities are also sought through fund raising campaigns.   Parents pay a school fee to enrol their children in ULC.  The centre accepts Burmese children from all ethnicities and communities.

Message from the volunteers that run ULC

“All of us here at the centre are volunteers and we incur zero administrative cost. All the donations go to the children, all 100% of contributions. We would like to collect funds to provide lunch, education and prepare them to be accepted by a third country like the United States and Australia so that they can have a brighter future. Without any English Language skills, their chances are minimal. Meanwhile the learning center helps keep the children off the streets and safely away from human traffickers who are always on the look out to sell them to beggar syndicates who will mutilate them and ship them to another country. Scary as it seems, unfortunately reality can sometimes be harsh and unkind.”
