Abstract

Our project assisted the Raks Thai Foundation (RTF) in providing quality education to the Burmese migrant children of Mahachai, Thailand by collecting information and developing recommendations to improve their four learning centers (LCs). To gain perspectives from various stakeholders, we interviewed LC teachers, parents of the current students, previous students, seafood industry employers, and surveyed the communities surrounding each of the Mahachai centers. Using this information and team observations of LC teaching, we recommended the RTF employ more multilingual teachers to focus their curriculum more heavily on language skills. We also suggested they improve awareness of the centers through better advertisement to increase funding from Mahachai companies.
