Burmese Refugees Need Help, and We’re Doing Our Best
Burma Border Projects (BBP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing
educational opportunities and psychosocial support to the displaced refugee and migrant populations from Burma living along the Thai-Burma border. BBP has a long history of over 20 years in working with displaced Burmese refugees and migrants in the areas of mental health, psychosocial well-being, and education.
BBP is presently focusing its efforts in two main areas— counseling and education.
There are over 2 million migrant workers from Burma living in Thailand. Many of these
people have children who for various reasons cannot attend Thai schools. To help these
children, a network of makeshift schools called migrant learning centers has sprung up in the north of Thailand along the Thai-Burma border. These schools are seriously under-
Our education programs provide funding for teacher salaries and for English language
instruction and general educational support for children attending these schools and also for service professionals in the Burmese refugee and migrant populations. We also run capacity building programs to support the parents, teachers, and staff working in these schools. Our goal is to empower Burmese refugees and migrants to create fulfilling lives, giving them the education and other tools they need to attain success either along the border or back in Burma should they choose to repatriate.
Our counseling programs provide direct one-on-one trauma-informed therapy to children who have suffered from child abuse and individuals of any age who have been victims of human trafficking. Counseling merely provides the core of a comprehensive trauma recovery program described in the What We Do section
Burma Border Projects: A Vision For The Future
As we look to the future, we have begun to focus more closely on expanding our counseling and other support services for victims of child abuse and human trafficking and to supporting more of the 30 to 40 migrant learning centers along the border.
