Who We Are

Greater Action was founded in March 2020 as an emergency response to the pandemic. It is a dynamic, non-profit social organization based out of Bandar Baru Ampang and is 100% volunteer-driven by a team of devoted volunteers.

Our core mission is to help 250 marginalised refugee families, forced to flee their homeland, rebuild their lives in Malaysia. We provide them with quality education, sustainable livelihood opportunities, artist development and much-needed general and mental healthcare.  

Our prime focus is women's empowerment via our curated skills training programs in cooking, baking, tailoring and beauty which enable the most vulnerable refugee women to learn, to grow, and to become self-sufficient.

How We Do it

Launched in January 2022, the Greater Action Center in Bandar Baru Ampang is a cornerstone for fostering sustainable livelihoods among refugee women. This nurturing environment enables them to sharpen their skills in tailoring, cooking, baking, and beauty, leading to self-sufficiency and the restoration of self-esteem and dignity.

Today, we can proudly say that we have created a supportive and safe environment for talent development. Find us here.
