Project Self Help is a very important initiative as refugees in Malaysia do face difficult circumstances, especially refugee youths who don't have easy access to formal opportunities for educational and vocational training. UNHCR commends HELP for their concern towards the refugees' welfare in Malaysia.

This project is an actualization of HELP's mission statement which is to help people succeed in life and to live a life of significance though education. At HELP we feel that everyone, regardless of ethnicity, social or economic background should have equal opportunity to education
