Thoo Mweh Khee Migrant Learning Center, Northwestern Thailand
The need and want for education is prevalent all over the world. International Girls Ensemble (IGE) has been lucky enough to partner with an incredible organization determined to help these children get the education they desperately deserve. The Thoo Mweh Khee Migrant Learning Center was founded in 2002, serving a community of Karen people, a sub-ethnic group originally from Myanmar, forced to leave their homes and cross the border to Thailand, where they now have lived for 30 more years in refugee camps.
For four years IGE has been traveling to Northwestern Thailand to live on campus and work with the children of the Thoo Mweh Khee community. Facilitating drama classes in English during the day and teaching our Female Empowerment workshops in the evenings. We have forged relationships with this community that have become unbreakable, we have seen growth within individual members of our workshops as well as the community as a whole.
International Girls Ensemble is thrilled to introduce our first Female Student Ambassador at the Thoo Mweh Khee (TMK) Migrant Learning Center, Ehlah Paw. Ehlah Paw has been a part of IGE's workshops each year at TMK and has shown exceptional leadership skills and is on a path to be an educator herself. She will continue to lead IGE curriculum based workshops with the girls of TMK and will be spear heading the first ever Thoo Mweh Khee Women's Appreciation Day, February 2020. IGE is excited to help provide leadership tools to its’ participants and to help encourage girls to rise to their full potentials as pillars of their communities.
