Education in Huay Pu Keng
Access to education in Burma is very poor. Many children do not have the opportunity to go to school. The village provides the children with an education that many of the adults did not have. The schools in HPK are not part of the Thai educational system; they follow a Karenni curriculum and learn Burmese, Karenni and English. The teachers are all village residents and the schools are funded by donations from tourists and charitable organizations.
