Playground Ideas, Finalists: Not-for-Profit Technology Innovator of the Year 🏆
Mae Sot, Thailand is on the border of Thaliand and Burma. There are millions of displaced people living along the Thai side of the border in slums and refugee camps. The schools have little or no support from the government and subsist on what little local donations they can recieve and a lot of help from NGO's and other international sources. the average school size is between 150- 300 but some schools have over 1000 students. the curriculum is often based around hours of rote learning and "call and respond" repetition. Generally, the principals and teachers are extremely hard working, very poorly resourced and massively underpaid.
We plan to build a playground in every school over 100 children in the Tak province wher Mae Sot is located.
There are no Designs.
