Happy New Year to you! We hope this update report finds you safe and well in these uncertain and troubling times.
Since our last update we have been busy! In November we coordinated another Teacher Training workshop weekend at Koung Jor Refugee camp. We had the same amazing teacher trainers as last time and the workshop theme of sustainability was a huge success. Jakkai, one of Thailand's most renowned embroidery artists, also gave another training in the camp and has even offered some community members paid employment by helping him with one of his bigger art projects!
Our newly launched Computers for Refugee Children project is coming along nicely. With the generous donations received so far and topped up funds from our general funding pot we were able to fund the first half of the project. The Koung Jor community are so excited to finally have a new laptop for camp admin and a few new desktop computers to be able to effectively teach their computer classes. We still need to raise the funds for the remaining computers and would love your support!

We are so saddened to hear of the recent coup in Myanmar/Burma and are keeping in regular touch with our friends and colleagues.
