Reading on the Border

reading on the border #pages4progress

More than two million people from Burma have been displaced due to political instability and human rights violations. These refugees, migrants, and other displaced people are living in refugee camps and communities along the Thailand-Burma border. They have lost their homes and livelihoods, and many cannot access community social services that are available to the people of Thailand, such as health care, education, legal advice and protection.

World Education’s first education center, Literacy House, was founded in India in 1953.

Since then, World Education has worked to address issues related to literacy and development in the country. Today, India’s education system still struggles with access: 72% of students don’t finish secondary school.

In China, World Education’s ConnectEd project works with migrant schools around Beijing and Shanghai that have insufficient teaching facilities.

For those migrant schools that do not seem able to absorb a computer lab or afford new books and tools, ConnectEd has a mobile van filled with books and hardware that provides digital access and library resources to multiple schools on a weekly basis.
