All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. This month, in conjuction with the Human Rights Day on the 10th December, we are organizing a human rights workshop conducted by two ex-Raleigh venturers, Serene Lim and Hui Yein, who will be giving brilliant insights on this topic.

Speakers profile as below:

Koong Hui Yein

Raleigh Expedition has given her the first exposure on the plight of indigenous people and the issues they are facing. Since then, Hui Yein has been exploring ways to learn and get involved. She has interned at the Center for Orang Asli Concerns and have worked with the Indigenous Peoples Network of Malaysia (Jaringan Orang Asal SeMalaysia) for 5 years before completing her MA in Human Rights and Democratisation last August. Hui Yein is passionate to share and exchange experiences to find ways in bringing greater justice for the society.


Serene Lim

Serene is an ex-venturer and wears multiple hats as a trainee lawyer, activist and writer with experience in human right’s work, particularly in the area of gender equality and internet rights. Her undergraduate education in Mass Communication and Law and Laws allows her to expand her imagination and motivate her in bringing the often overlooked testimonies of women and vulnerable groups into the court room, and therein to restore justice. She is also a recognized expert on sexual and gender based violence in digital spaces.
