The town of Mae Sot is on the Thai - Burma border, and the primary school was built for the ostracized children of the Karen State of Burma.
The school educates 600 Burmese migrant children from surrounding villages and camps. 146 of these children are orphans who live in the boarding room of the school. A large part of their existing school was is in serious disrepair, unsafe, impractical and incredibly hot. It needed to be torn down and rebuilt in order for the children to learn safely and adhere to government regulations. On behalf of our client we stepped in with funding and project management to build a new educational wing with 5 classrooms and an office. The building is a much brighter safer and suitable learning environment for the children.
