ABOUT US

Cahaya Society is an organization registered with the Registry of Societies of Malaysia as Pertubuhan Pendidikan Anak Cahaya Sabah. Established in January 2019 and focuses on the advocacy of alternative education for stateless children in Sandakan, Sabah.

Cahaya Society is committed to three core values which are advocacy, community and solidarity. The main advocacy is alternative education for stateless children, which has resulted in the development of community centres and activities, including a safe-space for stateless children, which has aided and reinforced Malaysians who believe that all children, regardless of citizenship status, economic class, or background, have the right to an education.
