The 2015-16 academic year at the Burmese Learning Center just recently came to a close at the end of March and was able to offer a full academic year to over 50 Burmese migrant children. The center has 3 teachers, two Burmese and one Thai that teach class each day. There is also a Burmese family that lives at the center and helps to take care of the maintenance and lunch program.
Some new projects that began this year were a soy milk delivery once a week and a healthy teeth campaign where toothbrushes and toothpaste are donated by a school in the Netherlands. The students are brushing their teeth after lunch every day! Volunteers from Andaman Discoveries continue to teach English at the center and we welcomed back one volunteer for the third year in a row.
The 2016-17 academic year at the Kuraburi Burmese Learning Center will begin on June 1, 2016 when the center will open its doors to students new and old. We hope to increase our teaching staff by one more teacher for the coming academic year.
The learning center is operated solely by donations to the North Andaman Network Foundation and the guests of Andaman Discoveries. We ask for your support in the continuing success of the Burmese Learning Center. Every amount goes a long way to help the ongoing operations and offering an academic life to children that would not have this opportunity. Thank you for your interest and support!
