We are happy to announce that the Burmese Migrant Teachers’ Association published an education, news and art journal title the Wisdom Journal. Volume 1, Issue no. 1 will be published in Burmese.
We are also seeking volunteers who can assist with English editing for future issues of the WISDOM Journal, as well as with the BMTA newsletter.
The journal will contain articles by teachers, school children, as well as articles on various issues. It will also contain education updates and news, as well as cartoons and poems.
The front cover of the current issue is a photo of a young migrant school child with a painting of her done by a volunteer painter at the World Children’s Day celebrations in Mae Sot, Thailand, organized by community based organizations (CBOs), including the BMTA, on the Thai-Burma border.
The back cover page of the first issue of the Wisdom Journal has two paintings by migrant school children, both paintings contain the slogan “Stop child abuse” .
