Summary

Founded in the spring of 2005, Ban Nai Soi Community Learning Centre (BNSCLC) provides secondary education, practical vocational skills, and community development skills to secondary school-aged Burmese refugees, ethnic minorities and the rural poor living in the Mae Hong Son Province area of Thailand.

The dormitories in the Centre are not just a place to sleep, but also where the students socialise and read. One male teacher is the “caretaker” responsible for looking after the students but the building wasn’t safe. The wooden roof had been severely weakened by termites,causing it to partially collapse and leak during heavy rains. The boy’s shared bathroom was also beginning to collapse due to its age and the use of clay bricks in its construction. Its design was also inadequate as it had no doors and was difficult to keep clean.

Background

The students at BNSCLC are part of a large population living outside of the refugee camps. Not being in the camps leaves the children without any access to secondary education as they donโ€™t have the appropriate documentation that would give them access to government schools. This lack of educational opportunity leaves them with limited options.

BNSCLC provides quality education, meals, and dormitories for migrant and refugee children on the Thai-Burma border. This support comes to children and teenagers who would otherwise be required to find menial labour and find themselves at greater risk of exploitation.

BNSCLC has coordinated with the Mae Hong Son Provincial Informal Education Department to provide high school accredited education to these children and give them the opportunity to break away from poverty.

The public funding available to operate these informal schools is understandably low, almost non-existent. As such the centre has not had sufficient funds to buy enough food or medicine for the students. To cover the shortfall the staff that run the school have been using their own minimal salaries to fund this.

BNSCLC success, sustained efforts and innovative solutions were acknowledged and rewarded by UNESCO in 2018 when they won the Wenhui Award for Innovations in School, Family and Community Collobration for Quality Education.

Goals and Results

The shared bathroom and the reroofing of the boys dormitory was completed on time and on budget.

As of early 2016, PCF has supported The Ban Nai Soi Community Learning Center (BNSCLC) in many different ways. BNSCLC provides courses in community development and leadership and teaching skills for migrant youth who want to give back to their communities.

Here is one of the success stories of BNSCLC, that we would like to share with you.

In July we encouraged the Ban Nai Soi Community Learning Centre (BNSCLC) to present themselves as a candidate for the 2018 UNESCO - Wenhui Award 2018 - Innovations in School, Family and Community Collaboration for Quality Education.

This is a prestigious international award for an outstanding educational initiative that is in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 4 - Education 2030 Agenda to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, as well as UNESCOโ€™s vision of education to provide and enhance quality learning opportunities, particularly to those most disadvantaged, vulnerable and marginalised.

We actively supported the candidacy, because we strongly believe in this valuable educational programme for underserved migrant youth.

We have been supporting BNSCLC in many ways for the past two and a half years. We are extremely happy that they received this well-deserved international recognition.

We will keep on supporting you!

The boys dormitory at the Ban Nai Soi Community Learning Centre (BNSCLC) is not just a place to sleep for the 13 students and 1 caretaker/teacher. It plays an important role in the "living and learning centre" ethos of the school, encouraging students to respect each other's rights, to be responsible for themselves and others, and to be able to get the most out of living at BNSCLC.

Unfortunately, that doesn't amount to much when the roof is so full of termites and rain damage that it is likely to collapse in the next big storm. Time for a new roof, and as soon as possible, before the rainy season starts!

Special thanks to Daniel Senicar and Michael Franklin from Bike Tour Asia for initiating this project, for their contributions and for their great efforts to see it realised!

Many thanks also to Trond and Sawee Arnstad, Jan Detlefsen, Miguel Gamito, Jonno Hiscook and Khun Angkana Pun-Ong for their contributions..
