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.

Thoo Mwe Community High School has been providing food to displaced students fleeing villages in battle zones near the Thai Myanmar border. The students needed a safe place to stay, a school to go to and, definitely, food to survive.

This school, one of nine schools PCF supports in the area, told us that this year there are 11 more pupils in need of food aid than the previous (from 35 to 46 students, aged 11 to 18).

Hello Sallo, once again I cannot let this appeal pass me by. Let me know how to contribute. Regards Nigel.

During two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hsa Too Lei School at the border in Mae Sot had closed down. This school has 1.100 students - children of Burmese migrant workers, children fleeing conflict zones, children from refugee camps and orphans – and has no access to public funds.

This year they reopened but almost all their school furniture was damaged or broken. One of our long term partners, Friends Without Borders Foundation asked us for help, and luckily another one of our partners, the School of Global Studies, Thammasat University stepped in and donated 20 tables and 40 chairs.
Then, after Sallo’s presentation about our work at the Varee Chiangmai International School (VCIS), its students decided to organise a Flea Market and raised 3.302 THB for 3 educational globes for the school.

We are very grateful for SGS and the students of VCIS for their kindness in helping these 1.100 underserved students.

The current armed conflict in Myanmar created severe problems for these young students. They had to flee their villages and needed a safe place to stay, a school to go to and, definitely, food to survive.

This year, the Thoo Mwe Community School, one of the nine schools that PCF supports in the area, informed us that there are 46 students, aged 11 to 18 years old who need food support this year.
