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.

The ongoing conflicts in Myanmar have severely impacted 115 students and teachers, forcing them to flee their villages. We have provided these individuals from Thoo Mwe Community High School, Kaw La Hey School, and Waw Kyaw School with three meals a day, ensuring they have a safe place to stay. This support has been crucial in allowing the children to continue their education despite the challenging circumstances.

We extend our gratitude to Joanne Nihom and Michiel Schrijver and two anonymous sponsors for granting us significant funds to support this project.

The Hope and Homes for Children highlighted for 2024 World Refugee Day that the refugee crisis continues to worsen, with an estimated 108,4 million displaced people worldwide, including 35,3 million refugees. Every year, an estimated 385.000 children are born into displacement.

This year, we want to highlight our "๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฃ๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ฟ" project that is transforming the lives of refugee and internally displaced (IDP) children in Karen State, Myanmar.

These children live in conflict-affected areas where they have limited access to basic education, healthcare, and other essential services, making them extremely vulnerable.

By strengthing the capacity of 11 Karen schools and their teachers, approximately 877 children from marginalised communities, we are not only improving access to education, but also empowering these children to reach their full potential.
