1. Background


 Hilla Community Centre in Malaysia has an annual program named ‘Hilla Peace Camp’. The focus of Peace Camp is centered on peace building and empowering of children and teenagers to be self-motivated and to envision their futures. Hilla has conducted Peace Camp since 2009, and Hilla’s students’ attitudes and concern for others have improved in their daily lives. The camp also motivates them through artwork, games, play and many fun activities.

In Peace Camp, we invite various different ethnic, religious and national groups. It gives us a chance to recognize that we are all neighbors. We can be different and that is a good thing. For that reason, we plan to conduct this program for refugee students, stimulating them to be actively involved in school and encouraging them to overcome their tough circumstances.


2. What is Hilla School?hilla logo.jpg

Hilla Community Centre (School) is a place for some of the many refugees in Malaysia who are waiting to resettle in other countries. The focus of Hilla is to provide refugee children with basic education, as refugees are not allowed in government schools. Hilla also helps refugee children get ready for the challenges of resettlement. Currently, there are approximately 100 students. Hilla School wants to provide a joyful environment that can be a second home for the students.
