Upcoming Virtual Public Dialogue: Upholding The Right to Education for Stateless Children

*Source: Nowherepeople

Stateless children are born into a world where they will confront prejudice for the rest of their lives. Their situation has a significant impact on their capacity to learn and grow, as well as their future aspirations and dreams. Perhaps the most obvious challenge faced by stateless children is their lack of access to educational opportunities.

Although some countries provide free primary education to stateless children, many do not. In Malaysia, stateless children of Filipino, Indian or Indonesian descent fail to receive basic education in state schools. Due to their lack of legal documentation or recognition by the state, these children are barred from attending school- therefore trapped in perpetual cycle of poverty through their lives.

Hence, Bait Al-Amanah and Wiki Impact will be hosting an Upcoming Virtual Public Dialogue on ‘Upholding The Right to Education for Stateless Children’. Tune in to this Virtual Public Dialogue on the 13th of October (Wednesday) at 10 am to know more about how we as a community can make the lives of these children better. Registration is free at bit.ly/stateless-webinar

We hope that this virtual public dialogue will generate a shift in awareness and perception among Malaysians on issue of education for stateless children, aligned with increasing empathy and changing of mindsets towards the general stateless communities. Furthermore, we seek to highlight the strong and sustained efforts of changemakers on the ground.
