To give individuals and communities an opportunity to advance themselves, we aim to initiate lasting change for people in crisis, poverty, and emotional hardship by ‘Bridging the GAP’ to education, business and entrepreneurship and sustainable relief and development.
Providing emergency relief and shelter to needy peoples who are in immediate need – without prejudice.
We promote education that challenges more than our brains. Academic endeavours inside the classroom are balanced out with physical exercise outside of it. Volleyball, football and exercise classes are the means to a healthier, happier us.
Our school aims to make excellent education available to both national and international students in Mae Sot, Thailand. Mae Sot’s close proximity to newly-opened Myanmar has resulted in an explosion of growth as Myanmar nationals flock to the area seeking economic opportunity. There is also a long history of violent conflict in Myanmar, which has driven many across the border into Thailand seeking refuge (and has drawn a significant population of foreign aid workers to the area seeking to help).
The schools available to migrant and international students living in Mae Sot are both too few and lacking in rigor and accreditation. Global Advance Projects’ International Christian School aims to fill that gap.
GAP International Christian School is currently in its first year. Our pilot program utilises Accelerated Christian Education’s curriculum for our eleven current 9th- and 10th-grade students from Myanmar.
