Doubling education in Bangladesh
In our October 2012 newsletter we updated you about the increased need of refugee Rohingya children on the borders.

We're happy to report that in response to this, in the last few months we've been able to double our education provision in Bangladesh through both our Camp Schools for refugees and our Learning Centres for working children.

Thailand football camp is a winner

The Children on the Edge football camp, held in Mae Sod, Thailand last month provided migrant children without parental care from our Children's Crisis Centre, with a fun and memorable experience during their holidays!

Than Lyun age 16 from the Centre said “We have never been able to play on a real field, with real shoes, and be trained by a professional … it’s been great!”  Read all about it >>
