Pandamaran Community Learning Centre Updates
PCLC started with 16 students, but today the number has increased to 65! The students are mostly from Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Pakistan, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Sri Lanka. Aged between five and thirteen, all of them are immigrants living in Malaysia as refugees or asylum seekers. The school has five staff who work tirelessly every weekday to ensure that every student receives the basic knowledge required for their academic level as most of them have not been to a school ever before. With dedicated efforts from their teachers, the students have improved greatly in the ability of acquiring knowledge, and most of them can now speak basic English.
PCLC started with 16 students, but today the number has increased to 65 students! The Pandamaran Community Learning Centre (PCLC) was established by ElShaddai under the leadership of Dr. Ng Oi Leng in July 2019 to address the education need of children in the refugee community of that locality.
” I’m C.Johnson, a Liberian refugee. I started teaching in the ElShaddai Refugee Learning Centre in 2015. Working in a refugee school is quite amazing due to the fact that I also attended a refugee school in Ghana. I’m here in Malaysia with my husband and three children. “
