German Embassy funds Refugees Learning Centre's Aquaponics Project
Klang, March 2016. Through its Small Project Fund, the German Embassy donated RM 20,000 for the purchase and installation of six aquaponics systems to the Elshaddai Refugee Learning Centre (ERLC) in Klang. Aquaponics is a self-sustaining method that combines fish farming with gardening in a completely waste-free system.
German Ambassador Holger Michael was informed during his visit to the centre, that the produce from this project would be sold to nearby churches to supplement the centre’s operation cost.
The Ambassador also donated sports equipment and t-shirts to the children.
Founded in 2008 and registered under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, ERLC is the most diverse refugee school in Malaysia, providing education to over 400 students aged between four and 17 from nine countries.
There are 28 volunteer teachers at the ERLC to handle the 19 classes ranging from kindergarten to Form 2.
