THANK YOU!

Dear Supporters,
On behalf of FED and the local Burmese migrant community, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to those who have generously contributed to help us provide education for Burmese Migrant Children.  We, as well as the Burmese children recipients of these fundamental gifts, are immensely thankful for the responses, the support, and the time you have given in pursuit of this cause.  While education, especially for youth, is of the utmost importance and beyond the confines of a price or monetary value, these are projects that FED will continue to provide thanks to the community of support we are fortunate enough to have made with you.  As we maintain communication with our valued supporters, please do continue to look out for ways you can support the Burmese migrant community through the work that FED is doing and through our future Global Giving campaigns.  Thank you again for your support and compassion.  


Every penny and cent that you donate counts and is helping to save lives!

Update on Khok Kloy Learning Center

Children at Khok Kloy Learning Center
Children at Khok Kloy Learning Center

Dear Supporters,

The 2013-14 academic year has been underway at Khok Kloi Learning Center since May. The school has a current enrollment of 50 students and daily average attendance is between 40-50 children aged 5 to 14.

The Learning Center has 2 paid teachers on staff and 1 volunteer teacher. Children are taught a 6 subject curriculum including Mathematics, English, Burmese, History, Science, and Geography.

The children also receive frequent training from the FED Health Team about topics such as proper hygiene habits to help avoid illness.

Please enjoy the following pictures and stories from Khok Kloi Learning Center students who would not be able to go to school without your support

Soe Da Wei

My name is Soe Da Wei. I am 11 years old. I was born on Ko Tau Island in Dawei State, Myanmar. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. My father died before I was born. My mother, sister, and I moved to Thailand to find a better life. My mother is very old. She cannot work or take care of herself. My sister, who is 15 years old and married, does her best to take care of us. Some days we do not have enough money to buy food to eat. I must go and beg people for food. Life is very difficult. I feel sad and depressed often, but I am very happy to come to study at Khok Kloi Learning Center because I hope to one day be able to provide for my family. I sometimes feel embarrassed because I am one of the few students that cannot pay the 200 baht monthly fee. I believe education is very important to finding a good job in the future. I hope to be an engineer and build homes and machines.  I am very thankful to have the opportunity to study.

Way Yan Soe

My name is Way Yan Soe. I am 12 years old. I have been attending Khok Kloi Learning Center for 4 years. I have one older sister who is chronically ill and cannot walk. My father works at a sawmill. It is very difficult work. The saw dust is very hazardous to his health and many days he is too sick to work. My mother collects the dried rubber the company does not use from the trees to sell. It is dangerous because if she gets caught she would get in trouble. I enjoy coming to school because I get to play with my friends and study my favorite subject, English. One day I hope to move to Myanmar and work as a car mechanic.

Hninn Su

My name is Hninn Su. I am 7 years old. I am a first grader at Khok Kloi Learning Center. Both of my parents have already passed away so I live with my grandmother. I have one sister who lives in Myanmar and one brother who lives with me. He provides for my grandmother and me by cutting grass in the rubber plantation. I love going to school. It is my favorite thing to do because I get to see my friends and learn English. When I grow up I want to become a teacher.

Once again, Thank you for all your support!

FED Learning Center Short Video

Dear Donors,

Thank for your support over the past years. Your kind contributions have helped to support students in reaching their learning centre so that they can study rather than work, We want to share this short video about one of our teachers and of our Learning Center.  

This amazing teacher had her shop destroyed by the Tsunami.  With the need to find a new job, she became a teacher at our Learning Center. This short video tells the story of how she became one of our most beloved teachers.  

“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” Roberto Frost
