AI Malaysia

In Malaysia, Amnesty International is about a thousand members strong and growing rapidly. AI Malaysia plays a crucial role in shedding the spot light on human rights infringements in the country and globally. Taking this role seriously, our members have joined forces on numerous occasions to help those whose lives are risk with urgent actions and campaigns.

Human Rights Education also plays a big role in our annual agenda which pays equal importance in interaction with adults as much as children who form the future of this country’s human rights standards.
