Changing Lives and Shaping the Community at Buku Jalanan Chow Kit

Traditionally known as the living and working grounds of sex-workers and drug-users, Chow Kit is also home to many children who are stateless and have poor access to education. But Buku Jalanan Chow Kit is changing the narrative and opening new doors by providing the children in the neighbourhood with a space to learn, socialise and feel safe.

Hear from the team behind Buku Jalanan Chow Kit as they work together to reach their dreams and transform their community – one child at a time.
