Location:Loi Sam Sip,

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.

We have incredible news to share! Ban Pang Huay Tad School, Ban Mae Mu School, and Ban Wiang Wai School, nestled in the heart of remote villages, have just received a lifeline for their young learners. 📚✏️

🌍 These schools face numerous challenges due to their isolated locations, with limited access to essential stationery items. But thanks to the generosity of the British Community in Thailand Foundation for the Needy (BCTFN), things are looking up!

🖊️ The stationery package they provided includes pencils, pencil sharpeners, erasers, blue pens, correction fluid, rulers, coloured pencils, drawing books, and writing notebooks. These might seem like everyday items to many of us, but for the children in these remote village communities, they're a true luxury, opening doors to knowledge and creativity. 🌈🎨

📚 These supplies are pivotal to the educational development of these young students, enabling them to actively engage in their studies and nurture their creative abilities.

A massive THANK YOU goes out to BCTFN for their generous donation of THB 68.000 which has significantly improved the lives of these students and brightened their educational journey.

Let's celebrate this incredible act of kindness and keep supporting rural education! 🙏❤️

The children of Loi Sam Sip are innocent victims of armed conflict in Burma. The living conditions in this refugee camp for Internally Displaced Persons are very basic.

To ensure that these disadvantaged children in Loi Sam Sip IDP camp receive a quality education, we support the school with modest teachers' salaries, basic educational needs, operational costs, and food for 38 of the most vulnerable children.

Here are photos of the children's activities this year. They have been taught about hygiene, including proper handwashing techniques, how to grow vegetables, helping to pick up trash in the school, and enjoying other school activities.

Despite the difficult situation they face, they can at least have somewhat of a normal childhood and receive the necessary education. Thank you, Stichting Ochtendstond, for supporting this project.
