BEAM's Outreach to Help Migrant Learning Centers
This year has certainly been a year of throwing everything out of the pram. Time has flown and we've had the Loy Khrathong festival early on 30-31 October, as dictated by the lunar cycles. In rummaging among the shelves in Robinsons, DIY, M&S and so too with many other stores, you are greeted with Christmas decorations and other tempting goodies; 2021 is just 10 weeks away.
At the BEAM Education Foundation they are planning on two fronts: the GED exam timetable for March-April 2021 and a Global fundraising campaign for migrant teachers -- see their request below. If you are able to help or have ideas, please make contact directly to Beam Education Foundation.
Contact details are supplied. Thank You.
Dear Friends & Partners,
Greetings from BEAM Education Foundation. We hope this email finds you each safe and stay healthy.
There are over 700 migrant teachers currently serving in 64 Migrant Learning Centres (MLCs) in Mae Sot, Thailand. The migrant teachers work with inadequate resources, have fewer training opportunities, and are underpaid for the valuable work they do to ensure that migrant children are not left uneducated. In response to the urgent needs of these at-risk migrant teachers, BEAM has recently launched a Global Giving campaign to raise funds for the remuneration, capacity building, safety, and security of 20 migrant teachers for one year.
Please consider donating to our latest project to help migrant teachers teach out-of-school children. No amount is EVER too small. To donate, visit: http://goto.gg/49434
Beneficiaries for this campaign include migrant teachers, youth, and children in marginalized communities. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity! Do not hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions about our campaign.
Please take a minute to share this post with friends and partners to support our work. We are always grateful. Thank you.
