After five years of working out of a three rented centres scattered around town, Marist Mission Ranong will move into their own purpose built “Marist Education and Community Centre”. This Centre will serve as a school for over 150 poor Burmese migrant children and hundreds of adult migrant workers as well as a centre for HIV/AIDS outreach and Online University study.
The foundations have been completed and work has commenced on the concrete columns that will hold up the pre-cast slabs of the first floor. Construction began in July 2012 and the first phase is expected to be complete by January 2013. The project combines Thai and New Zealand engineering expertise.
As construction proceeds, fundraising continues as we work to raise the remainder of the total construction cost.
Many thanks for our generous donors and benefactors who make our dream a reality.
