Summary

Since 2004, Friends Without Borders Foundation (FWB) has been working with Karen children and teachers on the Thai-Burma border. FWB primarily works in and around refugee camps and with the refugees or displaced children in these conflict-affected areas. The purpose of this project is to learn more about the situation, concerns and needs of the schools, teachers, children and communities in the Moei River Border site of Ta Grah township in Karen state. This analysis will support well informed future proposals and funding requests and secures that the programmes implemented by Friends Without Borders speak more directly to the needs of the communities they serve and thus have greater impact. This will also build upon the capacity of the Karen teachers through networking, project design, planning and information gathering.

The situation in Myanmar remains unstable, despite the perceived democratic progress from the perspective of the international donor community. What remains are rural, poor, and often displaced and insecure communities who still need basic support. This project is necessary in order to get an accurate assessment of the status, needs and challenges of the schools in the Ta Grah region.

Their study will cover eight schools, 623 children and 40 teachers.

Background

Since 2004, Friends Without Borders Foundation (FWB) has been working with Karen children and teachers on the Thai-Burma border. FWB primarily works in and around refugee camps and with the refugees or displaced children in these conflict-affected areas.

While any work in these areas is sensitive by definition, all their projects are implemented within a framework of children’s rights and human rights. This framework includes the children’s right to education, child protection, disaster risk reduction and human trafficking prevention.

Goals and Results

Many rural communities in Myanmar have lost much of their support since the 2015 election, although their situation has not changed. The goal of this project is to learn and get an accurate assessment of the status, needs and challenges of the schools in the Ta Grah region.

Thoo Mwe Community High School has been providing food to displaced students fleeing villages in battle zones near the Thai Myanmar border. The students needed a safe place to stay, a school to go to and, definitely, food to survive.

This school, one of nine schools PCF supports in the area, told us that this year there are 11 more pupils in need of food aid than the previous (from 35 to 46 students, aged 11 to 18).

Hello Sallo, once again I cannot let this appeal pass me by. Let me know how to contribute. Regards Nigel.

During two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hsa Too Lei School at the border in Mae Sot had closed down. This school has 1.100 students - children of Burmese migrant workers, children fleeing conflict zones, children from refugee camps and orphans โ€“ and has no access to public funds.

This year they reopened but almost all their school furniture was damaged or broken. One of our long term partners, Friends Without Borders Foundation asked us for help, and luckily another one of our partners, the School of Global Studies, Thammasat University stepped in and donated 20 tables and 40 chairs.
Then, after Salloโ€™s presentation about our work at the Varee Chiangmai International School (VCIS), its students decided to organise a Flea Market and raised 3.302 THB for 3 educational globes for the school.

We are very grateful for SGS and the students of VCIS for their kindness in helping these 1.100 underserved students.

The current armed conflict in Myanmar created severe problems for these young students. They had to flee their villages and needed a safe place to stay, a school to go to and, definitely, food to survive.

This year, the Thoo Mwe Community School, one of the nine schools that PCF supports in the area, informed us that there are 46 students, aged 11 to 18 years old who need food support this year.
