“Education is hope and dignity.” This was the core message of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon during the launching of UN’s global education initiative entitled: “Education first.” The said launching was attended by state leaders from all over the world.
One of the attendees during the launching was Burma’s Nobel Prize for Peace Laureate, Aung San Su Kyi. During the military regime in Burma, education was one of those who have been left behind. Truly, with the help of this initiative, Burma will be able to reclaim their right to education. (to see the video of the launching, click this, video from: UNECOSOC)
As to this note, the Marist Mission Ranong Team (MMR ) is so pleased that their education initiatives for the Burmese migrants are in lined with this global education promotion. For more than 6 years now, MMR education program has been giving the poor Burmese migrants, here in Ranong, hope and dignity through education.
