Keeping Dreams Alive
Mettamorphosis is excited to announce we are launching our first ever crowdfunding project. The money raised will go directly to two schools educating refugee children in Kuala Lumpur, who fled from the Chin State in Burma due to religious persecution. Without basic rights to education in Malaysia, these funds will ensure refugee children continue to grow and learn.
“We are hoping to raise enough money for at least 12 Chin refugee children to be enrolled in school for a whole year as well as to keep the two schools we support running.
Every child has a dream and for refugee and stateless children, having access to education is so important because it keeps their dreams alive.”
Co-founder Marilyn Metta
Mettamorphosis is inviting schools across WA and Australia to be involved in the campaign by asking them to become a School Champion
“This is a great opportunity for students to become involved in a social justice and community advocacy project. Projects like this provides a great learning tool for young people to learn about young people from other cultures, develop empathy and foster cross-cultural understanding and social cohesion in our community.”

Supporting stateless people and refugees
Mettamorphosis Inc. was founded in 2013 as a not-for-profit humanitarian organisation working towards alleviation of the personal, social, institutional and educational adversity faced by refugees worldwide.
Our aim is to support the needs of displaced children
We undertake work at the grassroots level, through local cross-cultural education programs in Australia and direct provision of funding and resources for stateless Chin refugee children living in Malaysia
We believe that every child has the right to feel safe and to receive an education
The Chin Story
The Chin community faces ongoing religious persecution from the military government in Myanmar forcing hundreds to flee their homeland each year. Despite escaping these atrocities, they face tremendous new challenges as stateless citizens in neighbouring countries such as finding employment, housing and the education for their children.
‘How I Became A Refugee’
‘How I Became A Refugee’ is an educational documentary produced by Marilyn Metta and Chris Gosfield which is available to the public as part of an awareness-raising project for Mettamorphosis
