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 Ta K'paw's School serves 51 students, 5 teachers, and the 296 members of the local community and is part of the larger SchoolPower project we support. The school was originally built with very little money available so had to use old materials. These didn't last long and once the floors starting crumbling and the roof fell apart, the school principle requested urgent help. But only for a new roof - fearing a request for more would be too much to ask.

The school definitely needed a new and expanded building so thanks to our generous sponsor, Micha Richter, the building was completed with help from the whole village, in 3 short months.

Many thanks, Michael Richter (Micha) Your support has enabled 51 students to continue their education!
