Educate 140 Refugees on The Thai-Burma Border

The youth of the Koung Jor Shan Refugee Camp seek a brighter future through supplementary education. Due to their status as unofficial refugees, these children can only achieve basic levels of schooling that allow little advancement. In partnership with Koung Jor, TBF seeks to evolve our already successful education program by continuing support for supplementary education classes and teacher stipends. TBF will also provide teacher training workshops to build the capacity of local teachers. project reportread updates from the field

Maw Kwee is a small rural village in Thailand along the Burmese border. With limited access to education in rural Karen State, Burma, students travel here to attend primary school. Some students have fled conflict and this is one of their only options for schooling outside the refugee camps. 115 students stay in dormitories next to the school and only have candles to use as light. By installing solar lighting, the students will be able to further their education and live in a safe environment. project reportread updates from the field
