MTD SDG Goal 4: Quality Education

Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning

Mae Tao Clinic runs a migrant learning center in Mae Sot, called the Children’s Development Center (CDC). CDC provides displaced children the opportunity for a brighter future through quality education from nursery up to grade 12. Every year, an average of 850 children are enrolled, receiving education in Burmese, Thai and English.

Through established partnerships, students can transfer to Thai formal education, Burmese education or university to obtain a recognized certificate from an accredited education institute.

SDGs Targets Supported by Mae Tao Clinic

  • By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and Goal-4 effective learning outcomes
  • By 2030, eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations
  • Build and upgrade education facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive and provide safe, nonviolent, inclusive and effective learning environments for all
