Child Development Centre School has 630 Nursery and Primary pupils in 15 classes. It's in Mae Sot, Thailand. The children and teachers are all there because they have had to leave Burma because they are in danger from the Burmese military leaders or because of the widespread poverty and hunger people face in Burma. They have no legal status in Thailand and are not even given official refugee status by the Thai Government. They are known as migrants. CDC School began as part of the world famous Mae Tao Clinic. In Mae Sot, the clinic is known as Dr Cynthia's clinic because it was started in 1988 by Dr Cynthia Maung to care for her people in exile. Read about the clinic on http://www.maetaoclinic.org./
