Incredible success at the Great North Run 2023
This year's Great North Run saw a fantastic achievement by our team of 24 runners. Everyone completed the half marathon on a scorching hot day only to be faced with a torrential downpour at the finish line.
Our wonderful team raised an amazing total of just over £13,000 all of which will support MEP's work in Myanmar and on the Thai/Burma border. Thanks to EVERYONE who took part, and a special mention must go to Robbie Western who singlehandedly raised £1,965; Dan Towns who raised over £1000; Frances Foley, Beth Foley, Will Millard, Jonny Catto and Jim Moodie who all raised over £500 each. A brilliant effort all round!
Particular thanks also goes to 'Team iPac' who sponsored our shirts again this year and collectively raised over £3,700 for the cause.
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.

WHAT ARE OUR CURRENT PROJECTS?
A NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN iPac AND MEP
We are delighted to announce that iPac and Mobile Education Partnerships (MEP) have launched a new partnership aimed at raising awareness of and funds for MEP’s work with refugee, displaced and migrant teachers and children from Myanmar.
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.
