The Burma Army government continues aerial attacks on civilian targets in Karen State. Our hearts were broken to learn of the atrocities including destruction of the New Generation School in Dae Bu Noh, Mu Traw district. Fortunately, education leaders and students had already diverted classes to makeshift schools in the jungle. As dismal as this seems, the Karen people are committed to education as a path to safety and future autonomy.
In 2022, Project KARE delivered $35,000 from donations to buy school supplies which has been distributed to thousands of students. Many of these students now attend school in the jungle, often in bomb shelters / pits dug into the ground.
