For almost a year I have been helping an impassioned friend make a number of trips to bring materials and some other essentials for a school he set up on the Thai-Myanmar border. The future of the Karen communities at large is dependent on the political will of leaders and governments to change. About thirty ethnic Karen children attend the school that stands in the heart of their village. Their ages range from four to fifteen. Some children come from several other communities close by. A few desperately vulnerable children are taken care of by the teacher.
