About us


School history

After crack down by military regime, on people demand peacefully, to change from Military dictatorship to parliamentary democratic administration, in Burma in 1988, Hundreds of thousands of innocent peaceful demonstrators were killed and wounded, by BSPP, military, regime’s troops. The activists, from all walks of the life, left from Burma to neighboring nations such as Thailand, India and China, Among them, the experienced educators from Burma, established a mobile middle school with 160 students including 15 boarding orphans from various ethnic back grounds, in the dense jungle, regarding to internally Displaced peoples (IDP), from 1993 to early 1999. Due to ethnic cleansing and scorched – earth policy on the IDPs by military regime’s troops.

This being the case, this school, was moved from Thai – Burma border area into Thailand, located on Mae Pa village Mae Sot, Tak province, in late 1999, with the assistance from open society institute (OSI). Our school was upgraded from secondary to high level in 2001. After 2003, OSI stopped their supports to migrant schools in Thailand, since then, our school has being survived, with the individuals’ donation, facing various difficulties and hardships. 

2. Current situation

Due to the worst situation of military – ruled Burma, politically, economically and socially, year after year, a large number of children including orphans have been increasing more than last years, so there are 21 teachers including 80 boarding orphans, from Nursery to TOEFL and GED classes in our school in 2009-2010 academic years. According to our tradition, we should not ask to carry out very heavy bardon for one donor, so we propose a small amount to individual, not to stop our educational struggle for our Unfortunate children from military oppression Burma. Because of totalitarianism of Burma, we have been depending on international donors’ aids, so please continue your humanitarian aids as possible as you can, not to stop our educational struggle.
