The Phan Foundation for the second time is pleased to join the Karen Education and Culture Department (KECD) in a joint appeal to support our Karen children back in our homeland in Kawthoolei.
This year, schoolchildren and teachers in Karen State are facing a perfect storm. The 3 ‘C’s – COVID-19, the Coup and Conflict – have increased in our territory this year and caused severe challenges for them and for ensuring their access to continuing quality education services.
Forced from their villages by conflict, many children now learn in makeshift schools while hiding in the forest. Reaching schools with learning materials, training and other essential support is made difficult by conflict and COVID-19 restrictions.
Since the coup, many Karen families have transferred their children to our schools. To provide for them, we need more classrooms, teachers, books, stationery, food, and dormitories. Despite enormous challenges, Karen communities are determined to give children a good education.
Please help the children of Karen State in their time of desperate need.
Your gift will help provide the basic necessities that they urgently need to learn and thrive.
All the money raised will go to KECD.
Any donation, large or small, will make a difference.
