EDUCATION PROJECT


AKHA HILL STUDENT PROJECT EDUCATION OF VILLAGE CHILDREN

WHY?
The Akha people are famous for traditional values and practices, their colourful embroidered costume, and the womens elaborate headdresses. Traditionally, the village has lived off the land; practicing slash-and-burn agriculture that required them to relocate their village every few years. External factor such as border controls, forestry police and royal projects have increased the pressures of change on the Akha people. Change is inevitable. What is important is that this village has control of its future and that the decisions impacting the people from the village lies in the hands of the village. Only then can they find a balance, between traditional and modern life. The villagers have decided that the first step for them to have control over the changes is to get the same education available for their children to other Thai citizens.

WHAT?
The children of this villages and surrounding villages go to primary and middle school (age: 5 16) in the Thai village down the hill. To finish high school (age: 16 18) and get a diploma they must go to Chiang Rai. Some children have gone to weekend school to complete some high school grades, but the quality of education is inferior to that in regular schools. In May 1999, the village sent seven children to study at the high school in Chiang Rai. However, the cost of food, school needs, uniforms, textbooks and accommodation are very difficult to cover from selling handicrafts. The Akha Hill Student Project is able to help children from 4 local villages go to primary and middle high school locally.

HOW?
Village resident , Apae, has developed four sources of funding to help support the village childrens education for primary and middle high school.
