EDUCATE Burmese migrant children

by providing education according to the Burmese curriculum, in addition to Thai and English languages.


Our students don’t have to pay for the school fees if they can’t afford them, as they come from poor backgrounds.


There are 3 ways to donate to the school. Ideally we are looking for quarterly or six monthly donations to reduce admin costs but we are grateful for anything you can offer. Thanks!
