Saha Christian Suksa School
|The sign welcoming you to the Saha Christian Suksa School|
Saha Christian Suksa School(SCS) in English translated to United Christian School, is a Christian School on the border of Myanmar and Thailand. Saha Christian Suksa School is under the Church of Christ in Thailand and was founded in 1965 with 2 teachers and 36 students the first year. The school was moved about 35 years ago to its current location as a result of flooding after the dam was built in Tongpapum. Throughout its 51 years, the school has continued to grow, and currently has 622 students and 29 teachers.

Many of the students families gather vegetables or go fishing in the jungle and bring it back to the village to sell for a living. Others are rice farmers or have rubber plantations. Many also raise chickens, pigs or cows. There are many small family run shops that sell things, and then also use what they sell for their own use. Others make Karen clothes by using traditional weaving that they either use themselves, or sell. While many families are quite poor, they are grateful for what they do have, and don’t want to have too many things. As long as they are fed and clothed and have each other, that is enough for them. I love this simple way of living and wish I could embrace it more than I have.
