My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Brackett Refugee Education Fund, Hamilton, NY, USA
My name is Mawteepaw. I live in Mae Klong Village (Thai village near Burma – Thailand border).When I was a child I didn’t have Thai ID card and I have only Green card so it’s was difficult for me to travel and study. But I didn’t give up and my family also encourages me to continue my study but the only thing is they didn’t have enough money to support me. Therefore after I finished primary school in the village I went to Huay Nam Khun Village (the village near Maesot city) to stay with my uncle and started to go to high school at non formal education school or KawSawNaw so I have to go to school only once a week. In the others days I help my uncle in the village as nursery teacher and they give me allowance for that but it was not enough in my study. After I staid with my uncle for one year he had applied Brackett Scholarship for me. That was the first time I had known about Brackett Scholarship. I had got Brackett scholarship science I study in high school until I finished BA in Maesot Rajabhat Kamphaeng Phet University. Before I thought I’ll stop my education when I finished high school because I didn’t have Thai ID and my family can’t support me but because of Brackett Scholarship I have a chance to continue my study until I finish BA. Finally I got Thai ID when I study BA in third year that I had apply for it science I study in primary school. When I finished BA my younger sister also finished high school in the same time so I had applied Brackett Scholarship for her too. Now my sister study in Bangkok and she study about nursing science. My father and I have to support my sister in her study and she also got scholarship from the Brackett Scholarship because only family support it was not enough for her study. Now I’m working with AMI NGO in Thailand and I work as accountant. This NGO work for people in the Camp in Thailand and their main job is medical treatment in the Camp. I didn’t graduate in accountancy but I work as accountancy so before I start to work with this NGO they have to give me the training. Finally I would like to thanks Brackett Scholarship to support me and change my life to be better and better. Mawteepaw
