Update on Education Activities

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 the GlobalGiving project aimed at providing education for Burmese children. Burmese migrants in the Phang-Nga province move frequently as a necessity of the labor they do and as a result their children have trouble gaining a consistent education. This lack of cohesion leads to a disruption in their studies and many of the students have trouble with self discipline when they are constantly moving to a new school. By providing learning centers at many of the migrant working communities in the area FED has established a safe environment where students can learn from a standard curriculum, regardless of which learning center they attend. Additionally, next year a unified learning center will open, combining many of the learning centers and providing students with an even more cohesive and supported education.
