All money raised will help fund our vitally important work to train teachers in extremely poor, marginalised and remote parts of Myanmar. This is a time when the need in Myanmar is greater than ever before. A lot of schools have been closed, many teachers have been dismissed for refusing to co-operate with the military and large numbers of parents are unwilling to risk their children travelling to school. The funds raised will allow MEP to continue to support teachers and children in Myanmar at this time of extreme crisis. We are offering hope for the future and helping to give children their basic human right to receive an education.
MEP are committed to working to improve the lives of migrant and refugee communities on the Thai/Myanmar border and within Myanmar. Our work is based on strong values, with clear aims and a belief that education is the right of all. We are committed to upholding best practices through open governance and transparency with stakeholders and partners in Myanmar and the UK. Please click below to read more about our Charity.
WHAT ARE OUR CURRENT PROJECTS?
MEP are responsive to need and new projects are always being considered. We often receive requests to expand our programme and these are always taken seriously. If the project meets our criteria, requests are followed up by in-country viability studies.
TEACHER TRAINING WITH MEP
Find out more about how MEP works. We have developed a unique and innovative model of teacher training. Our mobile units work with local refugee and migrant teachers and children at grassroots level forming meaningful partnerships with local teachers and impacting the learning of thousands of children every year.
Building on many years’ experience of working in difficult conditions MEP has created an innovative and effective system of training which is sensitive to differing perceptions of education and cultural and social norms.
We hope that what we do has a human face. I am very proud of the work of our teams and am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of our work.
