Every year the Wide Horizons students plan, write, edit and publish student newsletters that are distributed to our donors, partners and friends in Thailand and abroad. During the 2015-16 academic year, the students published two newsletters in English that they subsequently translated into Burmese and Karen. The newsletters have been distributed and read all along the Thai-Burma border, as well as in faraway places like Europe and the United States and the feedback has always been overwhelmingly positive.

school operating and ensure we can continue providing a healthy and safe living

young competent leaders at a crucial time for the development of communities in
