AHREM was founded in July 2011 so that Arakan youths could benefit from a higher level of education. It's location is in Mae Sod in the north west of Thailand on the border with Burma/Myanmar.
We have a maximum of 20 students studying ESL ( English as a Second Language ),computer studies and human and environmental rights. All of them live at the school.
The volunteer teachers whom we ask to stay a minimum of three months can choose to either live at the school or find their own accomodation. We also provide food for them,a bike and WIFI.

When we feel a student is ready to sit an entrance test to go on a higher education programme,we send them for the test followed by an interview with the school. Our students can't enter a school without the recommendation of AHREM's managers.This is a general rule for all organisations. Without AHREM they would likely still be in Burma with little future.
All our students are Arakanese and are determined to do something to help their people. They are choosen carefully and must follow AHREM's rules.

 Currently at our new premises for the 6 month youth empowering programme, we have 7 students from October 2017 to end of March 2018.
