Migrant workers come to Thailand with the hope of finding a living wage and a better way of life. Often poorly educated, they live as second class citizens, fearing discrimination, arrest, and even deportation.
Their children face an even more desperate situation, unable to speak the language, and with no legal access to the Thai education system. The unfortunate result is that many migrant kids work with their parents as child laborers in low-skilled and low-paying jobs, to bring the extra income into the family home.
Your support helps us to provide an alternative to these hard working people and their children. Click here to visit the school's website.
The Andaman Center for Migrant Education provides full-day schooling for 75-90 students living in the Kuraburi district of Phang Nga Province. Pupils take lessons from full-time teachers and visiting volunteers which provides them with hope for a better future.
We are changing parents’ perspectives regarding their children’s education by proving that furthering their education makes a difference. By facilitating their integration into secondary Burmese and Thai school systems, we will provide them with better job opportunities in the future.
