Norjalalikram bin Mohammad Nor, is also a student of Kolej Yayasan UEM undertaking A-Levels and is the fourth and final co-founder of Alien No More.

Our Story [The Change]

The Spark:
In 2019, Iqbal organized a charity dinner to raise money for a refugee school, MSO Learning Center. The experience opened his eyes to the struggles of the refugee children.

“A Night of Hope” Charity Dinner in collaboration with KYS, Axiata Youth Talent Programme (AYTP), Picha Eats and E-Lluminate.

Throughout the years, he noticed more and more stories online about the refugee community portrayed in a negative light. Realising many perspectives and stories were either biased or ill-intent, he knew things had to change for the better.

Shared Passion:
Working with his high school friends, Fariq, Zarif and Jalil, they planned to start a project to help create a more engaging discourse with the refugee community. Meeting with founders from various NGOs gave them a better understanding of the issues at hand and what they were getting themselves into.

A Giant Leap:
With the insights they gained and eagerness for change, they were confident in spearheading this initiative and with the hope it will continue to grow into something much larger than themselves. Thus, Alien No More was born.

Alien No More is also financially supported through grants organised by the International Organization of Migration (UN Migration) (IOM Malaysia) and the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO).

Our Mission

“Fostering a sense of community and awareness to promote accepting stances towards refugees”

Our mission at Alien No More (ANM) is simple: create an engaging discourse for Malaysians to learn, understand and empathize with the struggles of refugees. We aim to create a platform that acknowledges and learns of their hardships so that both parties -the refugees and the local public – can reach a middle ground.

ANM hopes to create a community where transparency won’t be punished, instead encouraged because Veritas isn’t in the knowing but the growing.
