it was no longer ok to encounter youth who couldn't see much hope past their filthy-trash-picking stained hands. Twelve yr. olds whose vision was lost in the noise of work at local tea-houses & factories. We knew more was possible, so we set out to build and develop the possibilities.
We, at Outpour Movement, are a group of passionate and creative innovators, teachers, and entrepreneurs who are in love with humanity and making a difference. Our mission is to advocate for, and empower through education, the underprivileged youth of Thailand & Burma.
In early 2015, we set out to find a location that would allow us the opportunity to build and develop a creative educational space, Seeds, for young dreamers to grow in. We've been working long and hard to see this space turn into the incubator of dreams we imagined it to be. This October 2016, we are excited to introduce young local artists to our music recording/classroom studio and to reveal our think tank space/general classrooms in early January 2017.
and unused space in Mae Sot, Thailand just minutes from the Burma border and just over an hour from Mae La Refugee camp, the largest in Thailand. In January of 2015 our family, Outpour Movement, of passionate volunteers, determined to restore and rebuild, embarked on the journey towards development. The outcome: training centers (a restaurant & cafe) and coming soon, Seeds, a creative space for youth.
...because for the last 60+ years the people of Burma have been uprooted from their land and forced to survive elsewhere. The result, a young generation [scattered Seeds] searching for their roots, while struggling to exist in foreign lands.
My team and I have been doing some gathering of SEEds because we understand that a SEED planted in good soil-space GROWS, and growth is only made possible by the people doing the SOWING, the WATERING, and of course the SON.
An opportunity for us, an opportunity for you. Stay tuned as we develop and implement our core creative projects that will give youth the opportunity to create, to learn, to GROW!
