permanent settlement in another country-possibly USA, Canada, New Zealand,
Australia or Europe.
- We are on the waiting
list. It could be 2-5 years depending on our luck
- We are financially poor
people and could not afford to hire a boat to Australia like many refugees do.
- Zomi Education Centre is
a self funded, private school for our children as the Malaysian government does
not allow our children to go to their schools.
- We rely on parent's fees and public donations to keep the school operating
- Our school is in the
outer suburban area of Kuala Lumpur the capital of Malaysia.
- We occupy 2 small
buildings. We have several rooms for conducting classes which later in the evening are
converted into dormitories where the boarders sleep on mattresses
