My name is Klaw Meh. I come from Karenni State, Shadaw Township. I was born in 1995. I came to camp in 1995. I live in refugee camp 1. I came to Karenni Refugee Camp 1 together with my family. I live with my parents. I get food from the Thai Border Consortium (TBC). My parents don’t have jobs. My life was poor. I left because of war.
I grew up in camp. I started school at age 3 years old in the nursery school. I went to primary school, middle school No2 and high school. I studied with friends then I played football. When I went to school, I went to study science, maths, history, English and Thai. I was happy with my friends and teachers. I was interested in SDC school because I wanted to know about human rights, rule of law, environment, and democracy. These subjects are important because I want to empower our Karenni people.
I have studied about environment, rule of law and human rights. My favourite subject is environment. I learnt about dams. The government built a dam only on a large river. we didn’t get compensation from the money that the dam produced. Many people cut down a lot of trees. Due to less trees the sun become too hot. Now that I know this, I feel that I understand about the environment and can make good decisions to protect it.
After I graduate from SDC, I want to be a teacher so I can teach my students. I am honest. my wish for the whole world is freedom to be located everywhere. I want no war for the world.
