Next Project: Build a School for 200 Children

One school, six classrooms, 200 children educated annually, unlimited opportunities created.

Fight poverty, slave labor, human trafficking, and child prostitution. The best part? After receiving donated materials and resources, and a whole lot of volunteer support from locals, we’re going to make this happen for $19,500. Now that’s an investment.

The schoolhouse will be built in a community of six villages in Lai Wa Plow, Myanmar near the border of Thailand. The area is heavily impoverished and currently lacking the most rudimentary education facilities, resources and teachers.

The children are consistently at high risk of trafficking into various forms of slave labor, particularly child prostitution. Provided primary education, these children are given the opportunity to seek continued schooling or vocational training, as well as the essential, practical skills required to find employment in their local economy. The Kid Launch program was commenced in cooperation with GENESIS during the summer of 2008 in response to the widespread educational hurdle faced by thousands of children every year near the Myanmar-Thailand border. It is an effort to bring support where other programs have not yet reached or, in many cases, have thus far failed. The recipients of our services have sought out our help and are selected based on a variety of criteria. Specialists conduct community evaluations to determine the potential significance of our support and if future development can be sustained by the community subsequent to an initial effort. Every attempt is made to ensure long-term sustainability through local empowerment and leadership development.
