Most Burmese refugees are not aware of the importance of education in particular for their children, and the refugee community in general has limited access to quality education. Since December 2011, the Zomi Community Delhi has run a school for 60 students who learn English, Burmese, and their mother tongue. Lessons are held every weekday for 2 hours, and tests are given every week. This project will help the school to continue its work and also accept more students.
