Challenge

Many have suffered until now from the decades of military rule in Myanmar. Children who were orphaned or abandoned lack identity documents and citizenship as you read. Lacking legal status, they are vulnerable to exploitation in all forms. Baan Unrak Children's Home in Sangkhlaburi, Thailand. Founded in 1990 to provide shelter, food, basic education and healthcare to these children and single mothers. As they grow, secondary education and training is vital to prepare them for adulthood.

Solution

This project supports the educational fees, food, shelter and transportation for the children of Baan Unrak, and for those who have reached the next step in their education and wish to go to university. They will be stuck at their current development status unless they can continue their education. Ongoing education also helps them achieve legal status by providing them skills and confidence needed to meet the challenges of adult life, empowering them with a better chance for a better future.

Long-Term Impact

Baan Unrak Children's Home is a community, and older children help the younger. This Next Step educational project will allow the current group of older children to rise above the basic, to expand their prospects, with a long-term benefit for their "siblings." Helping the current group of older children move up the education ladder will strengthen all the children living at Baan Unrak, as good examples are set and skills and experience are returned to the whole.
