Loi Tai Laeng School is situated along the Thai-Myanmar borders, which is near Mae Fah Luang District and Mae Hong Son Province respectively. Loi Tai Laeng School is the most populated among five IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) schools. The school also operate a dormitory for orphans, or children who do not come with their relatives, originating from different rural areas of Shan State.

Over the past years, Loi Tai Laeng IDP School was supported by various organisations. This support ended in March 2012. Due to high demand for support, many previous donors reallocated their budgets to inside Myanmar, which triggered a financial shortfall for the school.

We decided to cover the running costs since the academic year 2012-2013. Understanding the criticality of education, the community is very keen to provide their students with a safe, secure and conducive environment for learning.
