Mother Josefa Alzua Home in Mae Sot is run by Dominican nuns for Burmese migrant children, other Thai and hilltribe children who need a warm home, proper meals, a chance to study English and go to school.
To stay as self-sufficient as possible, the Home has started growing its own vegetables and fruit. It also bakes bread for sale at Borderline Collective’s cafe. Borderline Collective also conducts toy-making and sewing workshops for the older children.
There are various walls along the boundary of the home and elsewhere in the home that could do with some art to further brighten up the place. Wall murals are a great way to give the children a free hand to express themselves through art. See the slideshow above and our blog for photos of the talented and eager children creating art on paper and on the walls.
