World Refugee Day Celebration

On 20th June 2014, our students were involved in the world refugee day celebrations in Karenni Refugee Camp 1. The UNHCR requested for our students to help them to implement their activities on that day. Some of our students helped prepare an exhibition about the activities of various organizations and our Karenni culture.

At the ceremony, organizations shared brochures as well as seeds and vegetables. Our students helped run games and competitions for the audience. The winners of the competitions were awarded with some prizes by the UNHCR. During the ceremony, there was a big audience. There were over 400 people including children and parents. Everyone had a lot of fun.
