Burmese children find themselves living as second class citizens without money to afford basic fees for enrollment, uniforms, and transportation to school. Their parents are often illegal migrant laborers, at risk of discrimination, arrest, and even deportation.
Until the opening of the Learning Center, there were no educational facilities for Burmese children in the Kuraburi area. The Learning Center is equipped to provide education for 80 children according to the Burmese curriculum as well as lessons in Thai and English language.
Your donation provides affordable education, food, and transportation to Burmese migrant children. Learn More...

A volunteer teacher at the Burmese Learning Center can make a profound difference. Many of the Burmese children are expected to earn a living as child labourers in rubber plantations or fisheries if they are unable to attend school. If they excel in school, the children will often have better opportunities that exceed those of earlier generations in their family. The school is off the beaten path, allowing a teacher to gain valuable insight into the Burmese culture.
The support from volunteer teachers, like you, is crucial to break the cycle of poverty through sharing the gift of education.
