Recently we launched our new website fedgrassroots.org with new ways to raise funds and connect to donors and volunteers. Our peer-to-peer fundraising platform is a new way for anyone to become a "fundraiser/ambassador" and raise funds for our programs. We ran a pilot campaign to raise funds to buy handsoap for our 600+ students, and we quickly went over our target! We want to thank all donors that made this happen, and especially the leading Fundraisers Dachelle van Nijnatten, Lia van Gammeren-Emmerik, Philippe van Gammeren and Lotti Fraser for inspiring people in their circles and for testing our new website. We also welcome Matthias Gorontzy as a new fundraiser and for supporting us for many years. We hope more friends of FED will register on our website as a fundraiser and help us out with future campaigns - we are launching a new one soon! ... See MoreSee Less

We are honored to receive the 24th Bishop Tji Justice and Peace Award, held by JUSPEACE in Korea, for FED's work on peace and human rights in Myanmar, and our devotion to support the Burmese migrant workers in Thailand.
Every year, JUSPEACE invites representatives and leaders of civil society action groups and institutions to attend the ceremony and have the chance to share their work and challenges with partners.
In particular, this year, the Award is even more meaningful since the selection process was based on democratic participation, deliberation and selection by a broad spectrum of concerned citizens in Korea. The final assessment and voting were given by 384 voluntary citizen voters.
Due to the current pandemic, we were unable to attend the ceremony in person but participated online through Zoom.
When COVID-19 is well under control we are invited to visit Korea and give messages of justice and peace and make many connections of solidarity.
We are grateful to have many friends in Korea and wish to visit them soon!

Mr. Shigetoshi Umeno made the Unified Learning Center dream come true in 2012. His heart has always been with our children, giving them a safe environment to learn, to play, to make friends, to make memories. When he visited us in the past years, he walked around with a big smile, bringing gifts for our students. He wished to visit the ULC, but Covid-19 prevented this. We will miss him dearly and we can't express our gratitude enough. He will always be remembered, and have a place at the ULC.

We were forced to close to school for an extended time, but we are carefully reopening. Grade 4 to 8 came back to school last week, and we will now carefully reopen Grade 1 to 3. The Covid-19 pandemic is constantly disturbing school operations. We pray that the situation in the area improves. If it worsens, we will have to close again. Meanwhile, we put a lot of effort into online schooling and our teachers prepare for the worse. Utilizing online technology to teach online is still very challenging but we're making progress. #fededucation ... See MoreSee Less
