Yet another successful semester!

Another successful semester over! We’re taking a short rest now from the project during the semester break. When school re-opens, we’ll work with a new batch of students for yet another exciting adventure!! Thank you so much for all your support!

Oh! If you have any unused (but functioning of course!) digital camera or books/magazines on photography, feel free to donate them to the project! We’re currently searching for cameras (especially) for the next batch of students. Let us know!! :)

Mr. Colin’s See-You-Later Party!

It’s Mr. Colin’s last semester in Taylor’s College and last time being with Everyone Has Hope team before moving back to Canada to start a whole new chapter in his life.

To say thank you for all that he has done for the project and especially for the project members, the students of the ACR school decided to throw him a going-away party (we like to think of it as a see-you-later party instead though!) in their school.

Although it wouldn’t be the last time we would see him, as he reassured us that he would come visit (Soon we hope! Fingers crossed!!), it was a really nice get-together with the team just having a nice meal and enjoying each others’ company.

On top of that, Mr. Colin received some pretty awesome gifts from the ACR students too!

Candid shot! Amos (far left) from the previous batch of students also joined us! It was soooo good to see him again!

Not sure why Rachel’s face is like that, but Molly seems to be enjoying herself.

Jasmine… She likes purple and yummy food.


The ladies of the project!

The macho men!

Thank you Mr. Colin! WE LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUU! See you later! ;)

Fun in Sunway Lagoon!

On May 26th, we brought the kids to have some outdoor adventure in Sunway Lagoon theme park! Everyone had a blast swimming about and going on rides. It was the kids’ first time there and it was definitely a memorable one since it was our last time being with them before the semester ends.

What a way to end a great semester with the kids! Can’t wait until school re-opens and we get to work with a new batch of students and having the current batch to help us teach the new batch.


Closing Night (27th April 2012)

The closing night was bittersweet. It was hard to end yet another successful exhibition but we have no choice! What a great experience to be given the opportunity to host the exhibition in Cube Gallery!

Thank you so much Mr. Asghar for having us!

We never had a closing night before in our previous two exhibitions, but since we had gotten so much support, we thought that it would be a great opportunity to do a closing ceremony with special guest speakers as well as introducing #Recognizethem; a video documentary relating to refugee issues in Malaysia.

Our guest speakers; Katrina, Asha and Vivian.

Asha and Vivian talking about a campaign to end immigration detention of children. Visit their Facebook page here.

Katrina talking about Tenaganita’s work. Visit their Facebook page here.

After the crowd left, it was time for us to take the photos and poster down. Super sad!

Empty walls…

Thank you for coming to our gallery and for buying the photos, postcards and buttons!

From the sales, we managed to raise RM4400!!!!! What a number! Half of the money raised will go to the refugee school and the other half will go to the Everyone Has Hope project for the continuation of the project!

Thank you so much again! Keep on supporting our project!!!

Preparing, Promoting and Pumping ourselves up!

Happy Friday the 13th everybody! Hope your day has been going on well on this highly Hollywood-ticized day! :P

We had SUCH a crazy week this week! Preparing for our exhibition, promoting it and preparing some more, it was insane!

For those who do not have an idea what exhibition are we talking about, well, it’s our Everyone Has Hope Exhibition, Photos by Burmese Refugee Youth @ Cube Gallery, Ampang Point which will be happening tomorrow (Saturday, April 14th) for two weeks (until April 27th)!

Join us for our exhibition opening tomorrow night, Saturday, April 14th, 5pm-10pm! 

Back to the busy part.

This week (Monday and Tuesday) was such a big step for our project because we were interviewed for the first time on the radio where we promoted our upcoming exhibition and talked about the project as a whole! Well, technically, we were interviewed by two radio stations; Capital.FM and BFM for two days! Pretty wicked!

Liang and the team!

Rachel, Carley with Shefah on BFM.

We were pretty excited to be interviewed for the first time, especially Rachel! But everything went pretty well so we were happy :)

The BFM show was pre-recorded and it will be played this Saturday, 1:15pm (+8 hours, Malaysian time) on 89.9fm! To listen online, head on their website!

On Wednesday, we spent the whole day assembling the photos and getting them ready for the upcoming exhibition and checked for last minute details! :) 

Mr. Colin showing the group how to assemble the photos and frames.

Frames for photos!

Assembled photos! Look at those images! Can you believe that they were taken by amateur photographers? Whoa!!

Limited edition postcards up for sale!

Limited edition badges up for sale too!

Look at these awesome badges! Our very own Germaine designed these! Pretty awesome!

We hope this little teaser will pump you up for tomorrow night! Can’t wait to see everyone!!!!


ECA Mini Exhibition Opening (April 3rd)

We had our opening for our E.C.A. Mini Exhibition last Tuesday, April 3rd.

The turn out was successful! We were so happy that CPU staff and students were so supportive towards the project and the youths themselves. Some even bought a few photos that were exhibited there! 

Thank you so much!!!!

The exhibition in E.C.A. is still up for public viewing! It’ll be up until Friday, April 6th. So be sure to catch it if you’re unable to go to the Cube Gallery one!! 

Group picture :)

Our talented photographers do not only take great pictures, but they can sing really well too! It took them a lot of courage to perform in front of a huge and supportive crowd, and they all sure did a wonderful job! :D 

Our Cube Gallery exhibition is happening next week! Who’s going? Hope to see you during opening night!!
