In most areas of Karen State, Myanmar there is little opportunity for children to get education above 7th grade, and if it’s available, students have to travel far from their families to attend the school. Even though the Karen Education Department (KED) has worked hard to provide complete curriculums and education for Karen children, their education system is yet to be nationally recognized and there are no opportunities for students to attend university in Myanmar or anywhere else, with only a diploma from a Karen high school. Partners Relief and Development want to provide a GED preparation program that encourages and prepares students to take a GED exam and apply to upper-level University or college education.
