Cedar Learning Centre (CLC) began in 2018 as a small Bangkok-based refugee initiative with the aim of providing education and humanitarian aid for refugee children and families most in need. This comes under the Tamil Refugees Community in Thailand (TRCT) which is a community based organization founded by Niroshan in responding to a need in his community and is currently the Director. Being a refugee himself, he had researched problems faced by the refugee community here in Bangkok and so was motivated to help his people and fellow refugees. He is currently also working as the Migration & Community Liaison Officer for a charity organization.
CLC works mainly with Sri Lankan and Pakistani refugees in Bangkok, helping over 20 families in areas of livelihoods, nutrition and education. We conduct supplementary Maths, Science and English classes for students aged from 7 to 18, to educate them as well as to provide them with some form of structure in their lives. CLC also conducts occasional cooking classes for the children of the community, as a way of making sure that the children have access to nutritious food as well as teaching them important life skills for their future.
CLC believes that every child, regardless of their situation, has the right to education. CLC acts as a safe space for them to learn and grow therefore, their psycho-social needs are addressed. The children in our community can access information and learn life skills needed to be leaders in their communities.
