The new semester is coming and we are currently searching for new second-hand cameras to give to the kids! If you have any old functioning digital camera that has been sitting in the cupboard of yours for agesssss now, you might want to think about donating it to the project! The best part is, it is all for a good cause!
We are starting to collect cameras from now until mid/late August! Spread this news to your friends and family, it would be such a great help :)
For more information on what else you can donate, please click here!
Don’t know what our project is about? Find out more here!
Thank you for reading and we hope to hear from you soon!!!
We were incredibly lucky and honoured to be a part of the recent Hear Us Out 8 Global Issues Conference that happened on May 19th! It was such an awesome experience to be there and sharing about our project to students, teachers and various NGO representatives who were present that day.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
- To connect the students within the local community and vice versa.
- Raising awareness about the global issues and the solutions that can be taken.
- Raising funds for the local NGO’s within Malaysia.
Here are some photos taken by Mr. Colin Shafer during our presentation!
Thank you for being at the conference and being a part of our presentation!!
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.
Mr. Colin introducing #Recognizethem.
After the crowd left, it was time for us to take the photos and poster down. Super sad!
The group chilling after an exhausting night.
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!!!
We are proud to announce that Fugee School will be visiting us at the gallery this Sunday!
Fugee School is such an inspiration for our project as like us, they too work with refugee children (Somalian refugees) and youths living in Kuala Lumpur but focussing more on bringing education to them; giving them lessons in core subjects such as English, Mathematics, Science, Art, Computing skills and Somali (their native language).
We’ll post more photos on their trip soon!
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.
Rachel singing for 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!!!!
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!!
