New Wave Learning Center

This outstanding school is led by a dynamic principal and has one repeated awards as the best of its kind. Because of his cooperative relationship with the Thai authorities, New Wave students are receiving standard childhood inoculations from the Thai Ministry of Health. A Thai language program for students helps them navigate their new home.

Almost 170 students are studying here in grades Kindergarten through 11. New Wave uses the new Myanmar national curriculum adopted by the NLD government prior to the coup and will add a 12th and final grade next year. Because the school is on rented land with only a five year promise of occupancy, BSB country director Naing Lin Swe designed a steel frame building that can be disassembled and moved to a new site if necessary.

Partner NGO Sao Bien helped fund construction of the new structure.
