Details

The refugee community has limited access to quality education. Many adult migrants did not have a chance to attend school and their children face similar challenges.  Zomi Community School provides literacy training of Burmese, English and Zomi language for adults, schooling for children, and awareness-raising seminars to train the group of youth as the leaders of the next generation within the Zomi community.

The share you buy will contribute towards teachers' salaries, rent and utilities for four months from June to September.
