Greater Action Centre
Greater Action Centre (GAC) for Refugees was opened in Bandar Baru, Ampang in January 2022 to conduct various programs and activities in order to support the refugees and enhance their skills.
The multi-functional GAC is a safe and nurturing place for refugee women to learn, grow and earn a decent living. The idea behind opening the Greater Action Centre was to create a nurturing place where refugee women could learn, work and thrive in a safe environment. Also, to have a space where anyone who wants to contribute directly to our livelihood and welfare programs, can come and participate in the various activities that we offer, in small groups of 4 to 15 people. We offer, an array of activities that have a direct impact on the women’s livelihood and that promotes solidarity, inclusion and compassion.
