This project is about education. Our support provides for the basic educational needs, school running costs, salaries for 3 teachers and a cook, one meal per day and basic toiletries for the 44 students.
The assistance will include food, educational and hygienic materials, operation costs, and basic health education to the students. We believe that providing these basic necessities are requirements to create a healthy and effective educational environment.
Located near the Thai-Burma border, the Loi Sam Sip school teaches 44 students from many different ethnic backgrounds, including Shan, Palaung, Lahu, Wa, and Lisu.

FCHG strives to improve the quality of life and opportunity for the Shan migrants’. FCHG is founded and run by a team of dedicated staff who are from the Shan migrant community.
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 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.
