Update on the Community Learning Center on GlobalGiving

“The Community Learning Center (CLC) provides free language and literacy education to up to 100 community members in the Thai-Burma border region. Students include undocumented migrants, refugees, members of ethnic minority hill tribes, and Buddhist monks. Learning language and literacy gives these marginalized groups improved confidence, skill sets, and earning potential. It also increases their access to educational resources in the community outside of CLC. As a result, the program reduces their risk of being trafficked into exploitative labor situations. On a practical level, learning Thai provides critical improvements to learners’ daily lives and standard of living. It also empowers them to be active members of the community.”
