Summary

The project rebuilt schools and teachers’ dormitories worn with time and to repair schools affected by the storm on May 20, 2020.

These repairs are crucial for the safety and well being of students and teachers and vital to their continuing education.

Background

Friends Without Borders (FWB) Foundation was established in 1999 and registered as a non-profit organisation in 2008. FWB works primarily with refugees and displaced children living in conflict-affected areas in and around refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border. Since October 2018, FWB has been running the project ‘Capacity Building for Border Karen Schools & Teachers) in Karen State, Myanmar, with the support of PCF. The programme has been renamed ‘SchoolPower’ to gain recognition in the area. The project was initially based on the feasibility study and consultation conducted with beneficiaries during 15 September – 15 October 2017.

The ‘SchoolPower’ project is a run in cooperation between FWB and the local Karen Education Department (KED), which aims to strengthen the quality of life and well-being of approximately 720 Karen children living in 9 communities in the targeted areas and to be a model for similar efforts in other border areas.

Goals and Results

Thanks to this project, rural schools can apply, if necessary, for refurbishment and repair or rebuilding. Four schools in the area requested to rebuild or repair. However, before the repairs could begin on these projects, the area was struck by a tropical storm on May 20, causing further damage to these schools. Two additional schools were added to the repair and rebuild project in the storm’s aftermath, bringing to 6 the total number of schools to need repair.

The repairs began with a new school building for Pwo Pwoh Lay village, a new teacher’s dormitory for Mae La Ah Khee village, a new roof for Tee Tu Kaw School, and three roof repairs for Mae La Ah Hta school, Si Poe Khi school and the KED teacher training centre.

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!
