Project Borderlands was founded in 2015 in Singapore by a group of students and a professor who taught global migration. The Project was to design and implement a 3-month intensive teacher training program for Karen refugees in Thailand.
Educational resources are scare for refugees and the best way to empower them is through training refugee teachers who then can teach their own juniors. We believe in education which can give displaced youth hope, opportunities and skills so that they can build their lives in future.
The Teacher Training Centre in Huaymalai,Thailand has been run by Pawlulu Nandoe, a dedicated Karen educator for decades. She was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize in 2005. We work with her to enhance and develop the existing teacher training program for Karen refugees.
This 3-month program is to teach 25 Karen refugees English, accounting, computer and community development in May-July 2017. We need your help to send 3 voluntary trainers and educational equipments to Thailand. Any penny is appreciated. Thank you!
