WHAT ARE OUR CURRENT PROJECTS?
Our trainers work in some of the most difficult to reach parts of the world and with some of the most disadvantaged communities, affected by conflict and poverty. We currently have projects running in Mawlamyine, and Myitkyina in Myanmar, as well as Mae Sot in Thailand.
TEACHER TRAINING WITH MEP
Find out more about how MEP works. We have developed a unique and innovative model of teacher training. Our mobile units work with local refugee and migrant teachers and children at grassroots level forming meaningful partnerships with local teachers and impacting the learning of thousands of children every year.
MEP are responsive to need and new projects are always being considered. We often receive requests to expand our programme and these are always taken seriously. If the project meets our criteria, requests are followed up by in-country viability studies.
CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSES
In Refugee and Internally Displaced communities education is not recognised by the Government. They have little or no access to accredited qualifications. We help teachers improve their English and support them through Cambridge English courses, earning internationally accredited certificates and enhancing their career prospects.
Building on many years’ experience of working in difficult conditions MEP has created an innovative and effective system of training which is sensitive to differing perceptions of education and cultural and social norms.
We hope that what we do has a human face. I am very proud of the work of our teams and am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of our work.
