During the time of 1996 to 2000, there was severe military offensiveness that created many human right violations in central and southern Shan State. Because of tension in fighting, the Burmese military army tortured civilian by means of accusing people as informant for the Shan State Army (South). Thus, cities turned to be villages and villages became camps. Crops were died off, roads were severe for transportation, and ten to hundreds of schools were burnt down. As the biggest issue, many villages and towns people were forced to relocate. For IDPs children, there were no school (local instability is the cause), and no local human resources. The lack of basic healthcare service, nutrition caused serious failure in mental and physical development of the children. And worst, children lost their future. Leaders and parents dreamt for a basic education just appropriate to their children to use in life that time.


National School for Children so called, School for Orphanage and poor children was established in 2006, aiming to provide access to education and skills in livelihood to war victims’ children from 200 villages located along the banks of the Salween River. Basically, it is a community owned boarding school built on a small hill of Shan people militia formerly Shan State Army Brigade No. 7 area. Initially, the objectives of the school were to only give shelter to the IDPs children and give them basic education. In a few years later, the school became well-known to parents around Shan State so that Kaw Dai managed to upgrade school as model of National School for Shan people. For nearly 10 years, the school shelters to 270 students while it only started with a small classroom with 20-30 pupils.


In general, there are classes from 9:00 am to 4:00pm in the week days. Thus, the school uses its own curriculum & syllabuses to teach subjects in Dai literacy, History, Geography, Mathematics, Science (general), English four skills, Thai and Myanmar languages, and knowledge for life. The rest of times in a days and weekends would be given students opportunity to learn skills in;

  • Teamwork

  • Organic Farming

  • Traditional handicraft and cooking

  • Music and traditional dances

  • Basic nursing (first-aid)

  • Art
