Summary

This project is about education. Our support provides for the basic educational needs, school running costs, salaries for 2 teachers and a cook, one meal per day and basic toiletries for the 38 students who live in the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDP) camp.

The assistance will include food, educational and hygienic materials, operation costs, and basic health education to the students, and a safe and caring space. Providing these basic necessities are the minimum requirements to create a healthy and effective educational environment for these children facing immense difficulties.

Located near the Thai-Burma border, the Loi Sam Sip school teaches 38 students from many different ethnic backgrounds, including Shan, Palaung, Lahu, Wa, and Lisu.

Background

Fortune is a grassroots organization in Wiang Wai Village, Fang District, Northern Thailand. Its mission is to address the community health and human rights needs of the Shan migrants (many undocumented) who live and work in migrant camps on agricultural farms that surround the Fang area. Fortune strives to improve the quality of life and opportunity for these Shan migrant workers and to help the community help itself. One of Fortune’s greatest assets is that it is created, developed and staffed by members of the migrant community it serves.

It has been almost 3 years since the National League for Democracy swept to victory in the 2015 elections, and with it, the signing of the National Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) in October 2015. Unfortunately, these achievements have not improved the situation for many of the ethnic minority groups in Burma, and despite the peace agreement, the conflict has increased in many areas.

Goals and Results

The goal of this project is to make sure these disadvantaged children in Loi Sam Sip IDP camp get a quality education. We will achieve this by supporting the school and helping to provide basic educational needs. This support will cover children from kindergarten to primary school.
