Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
Burmese Migrant Workers Education Committee (BMWEC)
This description of Naw Paw Ray's work was prepared when Naw Paw Ray was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Naw Paw Ray is building a network of migrant schools and training migrant teachers to address the vast educational gap between Thai children and the children of Burmese migrant workers in Thailand. Naw Paw’s schools provide quality education that prepares migrant children for a prospective return to Burma or integration into Thai society and culture. This model is critical to establishing a pluralistic and tolerant Thai society in the twenty-first century.
