What is the issue?
Access to education for Burmese migrant children in Thailand is very difficult for a number of reasons: such as poverty, inability to speak the Thai language, fear of discrimination, and living in rural areas.
We provide several services to empower Burmese migrants to gain access to educational opportunities in Southern Thailand.
Our migrant learning centers run a Burmese curriculum with extracurricular subjects. We provide a daily pick-up & drop-off service and help students to continue studying in Myanmar.
Thai School Integration
We help Burmese youth to overcome the challenges enrolling into Thai government schools. Burmese migrants with a Thai education gain opportunities for a better future in Thailand.
Living abroad, language skills are very valuable and open up many opportunities. We facilitate Thai and English language classes on Sundays for out-of-school migrants.
Impact in 2021
