Some of the students really got into brushing their teeth this afternoon. It looks like for some it turned into a competition...
We have many pictures and many wonderful smiles to share with you! Here is a first selection of photos taken on the first school day!
The MPG team is beyond excited to finally announce the opening of our new school this coming Monday, May 20th!
Based on previous success, MPG decided to start its own school, in order to accommodate a maximum number of Shan kids and give more children a chance to one day transition to the the local government schools and beyond!
Ever since our last trip to Thailand in January we have been working together with some of our local coordinators and teachers in order to locate the villages with the greatest needs for such a school.
There are many kids who are just as excited as we are for their first school-day!
The new school, which will be run by two teachers, is located in the midst of the idyllic orange plantations on which many of the children's parents are working. One of the plantation owners had the magnitude of heart to offer us one of his buildings which is now in the process of being converted to a fully functioning school!
So please be on the lookout for individual pictures of all the new students, and their names as we will introduce each one of them individually over the coming weeks! We will also introduce you to both teachers, life at the school in general as well as the school's name!
Lastly, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your strong and lasting support. Keep spreading the word and sharing our posts wherever you can! Monday, May 20th will be the greatest day our organization has thus far been able to witness. Yet none of it would have been possible without your help!
With much love, gratitude and excitement,
Felix for the MPG Team.
