Brackett Refugee Education Fund
March 8, 2011

I am a Trustee Representative volunteer with BREF working out in the field in Mae Sot. I have been affiliated with this organization for 6 years and travel every year to the Thai/Burma border to mentor our continuing university students and interview new applicants. All volunteers pay their own expenses for travel and accommodation, but we what we gain from the work we do is worth far more than the money spent. to get there! To be face to face with the young men and women striving through education to help their people is nothing short of inspiring. We love returning every year to see how our students grow and mature to be capable leaders in their communities. The beauty of BREF is that even just a few dollars donated can make a life changing impact here. The people we assist are intellligent and highly motivated. Together we work to create skilled professionals who can then help others improve the quality of life on the border. If you are interested in an organization with high volunteer commitment, low overhead, and high impact on a beautiful population of people who have been oppressed for decades, BREF is a great one to consider.
