Khin Mar is 13 years old from Long Lone Township, Thanintharyi Region in Burma. Her parents migrated to Thailand 8 years ago in search of safety and improved living conditions. Khin Mar has studied at FED Learning Centers for 7 years. She has loved the experience. She says the teachers are excellent role models and her school friends are great encouragements for her in difficult times.
Without the opportunity to study at FED she would have no basic education knowledge and would likely be caring for her family at home or be a victim of child labor. Now she can read, write, and speak both Thai and Burmese fluently which will help her find work in the future. Khin Mar dreams of being a movie actress in the future.
Toe Tat is 13 years old from Long Lone Township, Thanintharyi Region in Burma. Toe Tat is a participant in the Children on the Move program. Toe Tat says that the Human and Child rights training has changed his life because before he gained this knowledge he used to bully and discriminate other students, now he understands this is not good and he uses his new knowledge to set an example and train his peers.
Toe Tat loves learning photography because it is a way to capture beauty to share with friends. In the future Toe Tat dreams of becoming an Architect so he can use his passion of drawing to design buildings and other things.
