Human Rights NGO

Support for Refugees, Migrants and Women

Founded in 1991, this Malaysian NGO began working to protect women workers in plantations and industrial sectors, supporting them by fighting for decent wages and decent living conditions and to stop gender-based discrimination and violence. Since then, the NGO has expanded its mission so that it now protects and promotes the rights not only of women, but also of migrants and refugees.

This NGO endeavours to promote a culture where quality and human rights for all are embraced, valued and protected. Its current four major projects are: Migrant Rights Protection; Refugee Action Program; Anti-Trafficking of Women and Children; and Shelter for Women in Crisis.

Your Role

The assistance that you provide to support refugees, migrant workers and trafficked women and children may be in the form of general advice, counselling, legal advice and/or advocacy – your role and responsibilities will be developed during the application process and will in part depend upon your area of study.
