Mobile Education Partnerships
Mobile Education Partnerships (MEP) trains teachers in marginalised communities in Myanmar and adjoining refugee centres in Thailand. Children in the refugee camps and migrant communities have lower life chances because teachers are untrained and lack qualifications. MEP’s trainers train 50 teachers annually, who teach 2,000 children per year. The charity has also enabled up to 18,000 children to have access to further educational materials through textbook production. A grant from The Fore will increase the capacity of the management team to focus on scaling and strategy. This will enable MEP to scale and meet requests for new projects across Myanmar and Southern Thailand.
