On Tuesday afternoon of June 14th, 2011, FED proudly hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the Unified Learning Center. The event was not only marked by its traditionally Buddhist ceremonial procedure, performed to signify the construction of an official building, but it was also colorfully highlighted by the smiling faces of the many who attended. At the event were FED staff and volunteers, the many young students from our primary school and youth outreach center, several parents and relatives, and official FED board member Chalida Tajaroensuk, as well as an officer from the Khuk Khak local administration. As WEDA members graciously handed out beverages for all the students and other attendees, FED staff members enthusiastically took advantage of the gathering as an opportunity to capture the excitement on film and in photo, as this was a moment of tremendous hope and achievement for the Burmese community here in the Phang Nga province of Thailand.
