The greatest gift: education
The story behind the pictures is rather sad. Only 20% of Burmese Migrant Children start school and 90% of these children finish at age 12. Only 13 Burmese Teenagers are in a Thai school receiving a Secondary Education.
Great needs still exist here on the Thai Burma Border. Our Preschool Programme and Burmese Migrant Secondary Education Programme is vital for the Migrant Community. Without education the cycle of poverty continues.
With your generosity, and us 'lending our flesh to God' -as Pope Francis says - we make an incredible difference.
