Rebuilding lives. Giving new hopes.

Greater Action is a dynamic, non-profit social organization based out of Bandar Baru Ampang and is 100% volunteer-driven.

Our mission is to help refugees rebuild their lives in Malaysia. We support marginalised refugee families, mainly from Afghanistan, forced to flee their homeland, by providing them with quality education, sustainable livelihood opportunities, and much-needed general and mental healthcare.  

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

How Do We Do it?

Empowering & 

Nurturing Talents

Opened in January 2022, in the heart of Bandar Baru Ampang, Greater Action Center is a safe and nurturing place for refugee women to learn a new skill or enhance an existing one, and earn a decent living. They put all their heart and talents into tailoring, cooking, baking or beauty training programs in which they thrive and feel empowered.

The center is their second home and helps them to regain their sense of belonging and dignity. At Greater Action, we strive to rebuild the lives and the welfare of 250 vulnerable refugee families. Find us here.
