lisabyrdcollection This is my ace, my lil chick, we are the same age difference as me and my mom, 17 years and she has been with me for 9 years at my school for #refugees here in #thailand we are such an awesome #motherdaughter like team and I couldn't do any of the work I do in the #refugee #community here without her. She wants to return to her country and open a project similar to mine one day as there is no #school In her #village Proud to say that after only attending my school #thaifreedomhouse she is now in a #GED program and will go to #university next year, we have a great record for getting young #women who have had no opportunities through #college. I thought you might like to know that 50% of profits from the #lisabyrdcollection go to my #learningcenter to help support #education in #language #lifeskills and the #arts and to fund #humanrights work. #cyclical #womenswork #charity #refugeecamp #myanmar #burma taken in a #weird #secondhand shop we got caught in in the rain the other day. #proud #sisterhood #changinglives 2d

lisabyrdcollection Another view of #thaifreedomhouse #graduation Friday night. This is when we have acknowledgements to our #freebirdcafe staff.

  •   lisabyrdcollection This is our 28th term in 9 years, I started this lol project #informaleducation in my tiny two room house that long ago... Sometimes I need to step back and be proud. Thousands have benefited from our services and I was the only full time staff until a year ago when my student Nap Dow came to intern in the office with me. DAYAM, we have come a long way! 2mon
