Tens of thousands of Burmese have fled persecution to neighbouring countries. In Thailand there are huge refugee camps on the border. We are working with the One Sky Foundation who are based there and registered with the Thai government to provide education for refugee children.

Most refugee families are very poor and many are unable to send their children to school as they need to supply uniform, books and pay some fees. Because of this, many families are sending their children to orphanages hoping they will get an education there. Many of these orphanages are run by unscrupulous people who keep the children underfed and dirty in order to raise money. We work to remove children from these orphanages, reunite them with their families and fund their education.
As well as helping to reunite families, we are putting pressure on the Thai government to regulate these orphanages. We also support families who have not sent their children to orphanages but who have kept their children but are unable to send them to school for financial reasons. Our assistance applies to all levels of education from primary to high school.
