Tawau : The Catholic Social Teaching recognizes that every human being has a right to life, the fundamental right that makes all other rights possible, and a right to access to those things required for human decency-among them is education. Responding to that, Holy Trinity Church in close collaboration with the Indonesian Consulate had set up a Learning Centre for the migrant children in July 2011.

Yuliana Ritan, one of the teaching staff who hails from Nunukan has this to share.'I am happy that the Church and the Indonesian Consulate had together set up the learning centre to provide education to so many migrant children. Otherwise, they will grow up to be illiterate.'
The teachers have been given some basic training in psychology and methodology by volunteers from Indonesia. Further training will be arranged in the near future to upgrade their competency.
