Following on from the success of the moving schools project in Mae Sot, Thailand we have been approached by another school to offer support in the way of a number of new classrooms. Currently the remote school is having to turn away chidlren as it is already over subscribed and has no space for additioonal students. This in turn means that children are missing out on an education. We would like to do something about this and plan to build 5 modules that will act as additional classrooms and adminstration space.
The school is located 40km's out of Mae Sot to the south. The area is on the Border of Thailand and Burma and has a high number of migrants and refugees as a result of the turbulent history of Burma.
The design of the new classrooms will make use of the moving school design where modules are prefabricated off site by local aprentices that work with the YOuth connect socail enterprice. The project acts as a tool to educate local people on sustainable building techniques working off plans and off site skills which they can use and develop long after the project is complete. The project also involves local people and handicraft with bamboo screens and blinds being created by local artisans and migrant workers. Once built the school will be able to be taken down and move with the school if they are forced to move or if they move of their own free will back to Burma.
