Nong Kiaw Learning Centre
Nan Learning Centre
The Learning Centre at Nong Kiaw is situated next door to the town's primary school. It organises after-school activities at the same time as providing a valuable educational resource for the school. The centre is well used with over 200 children attending every week, who participate in a number of different activities, including cultural activities, sports, games and, of course, a serious emphasis on education.
In addition, the fantastic staff take the centre out to rural schools on educational day trips to help the many under-resourced schools in the vicinity.
Baraka has also funded some of the infrastructure at the centre, building a new toilet block (also used by the school) and an outdoor covered play area used by the children for sports, games and cultural shows.
Baraka Community Partnerships started contributing to the funding of this centre in 2019. The centre is a smaller version of Nong Kiaw, supporting just over 100 children and offering a similar range of activities. Our aim is to improve the infrastructure to help develop the centre so that it can support more children from further afield.
