In 2014 we completed the construction of a new primary school for the village of Mae Wah Khee in the Karen State of Burma. The new school provides access to education for over 120 underprivileged children with little or no prior access to schooling in a very impoverished area of the state.
This school also serves as a place for children and their families to receive healthcare and act as a community hub for the sharing of agricultural knowledge and a meeting space for the community at large. The school has both Burmese and English language curriculum along with Karen language, sports, gardening and arts and crafts. There are 9 teachers in Mae Wah Khee village, two teachers for the nursery and seven for the primary school.
