Child’s Dream was established in 2003 and is dedicated to empower children, youth and communities in the Mekong Sub-Region. We have reached well over 200,000 children so far and implemented close to 300 projects. Education is one of the main pillars of our work in the four countries we operate: Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. We cover education in its entirety, from kindergarten all the way up to university education and vocational programmes.
Educated teachers and content relevant curriculum are keys to a successful knowledge transfer. Therefore, we also conduct teacher training and produce curriculum and class materials for non-formal community schools in Myanmar and along the Thai-Myanmar border.
