See How Burmese Migrant Children Live and work in South Thailand

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Please click the link below to watch a short video of how Burmese Migrant Children live in South Thailand. There is also a short message from our Executive Director. Please do share the video with your friends and families.

I hope this video helps you all to better understand how your money is being used to help Burmese migrant children access education and bring themselves out of the vicious cycle of poverty that has afflicted their families for generations.

The first child in the video lives and works on a rubber plantation. The second child lives on a construction site. Both are FED-GHRE students.

Many thanks for your support,

Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2011 !!

World Teachers Day 2010

Dear Supporters,

Last month all our students got together to give thanks and show their respect for our fabulous teachers. There was lots of dancing, singing, present giving and speeches. 

All the children also received GHRE T-Shirts donated by Mr Harald Engle from The Rights of the Child.

This project, providing education to Burmese migrant children, would not be at all possible without our amazing, dedicated teachers.

THANK YOU TEACHER!!

Update on Migrant Learning Centre Activities

Beach Cleanup
Beach Cleanup

Dear Supporters,

Since our Learning Centres reopened in May 2010 both students and teachers alike have been busy bees, keeping themselves thoroughly occupied and entertained with a number of extra curricular activities. Here are a couple....

Environmental Cleanup On May 27th, in accordance with Grassroot’s (The local name for FED) growing environment and conservation interest and long term goals, staff, parents, students and community members cleaned and collected waste around one of our learning centers and in the general community area. Another set of students also participated in a beach clean up in the Ban Nam Khem area on June 9th.

Curriculum workshop: Through continuous assessment, education staff do their best to improve their delivery of education so that our children benefit from the best. Over 3 days from May 28th-30th, a Teachers' capacity building and curriculum workshop was conducted. 16 teachers participated to the workshop. The issues discussed in the the workshop included: child-centered teaching methods, administration of our learning centers, the role of headmasters, the content of 2009 - 2010 curricula, and the evaluation of student competencies and learning.

Thank you so much for your continued support.
