Children on the Move

This video gives a brief summary of the Burmese families working in Thailand, showing the paradox of extremes between the upper class tourists and the lower class migrants.

It also introduces one of FED’s educational programs, called Children on the Move. This program, implemented at the Unified Learning Center, empowers students to become human rights advocates. This student-training-student program equips Burmese children with the ability to recognize and defend their human rights.
