Project Report | Jun 16, 2021
Continuing to be sustainable

By Jane Best | Project leader

Most of the projects we support continue to be productive.

The DARE Network programme on the Thai-Myanmar border has set up a Moringa production business to provide income generation for their activities. MoringAid prepares Moringa powder from the leaves of the Moringa tree and packages it up for selling. The project has the advantage of not only providing income for the DARE team but also engaging with local farmers – a valuable way to increase understanding between the refugee population and the host population.

Teachers at the Kindergarten in Lebanon continue to mix in-person teaching with online home teaching on a rota system. This has been facilitated by REI funding the provision of tablets for the teachers.

The Karenni Social Development Center classes have been affected by both COVID-19 restrictions and the continuing displacement within Myanmar creating extra challenges. They continue to teach in camp classes and recent funding has enable to re-stock and renew some facilities

We have been able to start a new cycle of Entrepreneurial training for refugees living in Nairobi, Kenya. The new programme started this month, June, and will provide for 50 refugees directly and a further 200 indirectly through family support, employment and trade.

Activities inside Karen state, Myanmar have been suspended due to the unrest there.

Your support is invaluable to ensure we continue to provide opportunities. As one beneficiary said: "the thought that someone from another country is thinking of us, gives us courage."
Thank you.
