Vision + Why We Do It
The vision is to shock the system of forced migration with education. By providing indispensable knowledge on human rights, healthcare and language, we will disrupt the cycle of displacement, dependency and refugee warehousing.
Nosapo, inc. is a newly founded, growing nonprofit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts. The future for Nosapo is to maintain teams of curricula writers and field educators. The idea is to research, create, and educate. Our writers will research and create curricula. Educators will train and educate in the field and in our classrooms. We are also reliant on educators to research and return information from their field experiences to continue to create working educational materials.
Nosapo is a Karen-Burmese word meaning ‘small flower’ a nickname given by friends to founder, Melanie, when working in Mae Wang, Thailand.
Like this small flower-the dandelion symbolizes an abundance of innate potential to be shared. Historically, the dandelion symbolizes surviving through all challenges and difficulties and a reminder to use innate intelligence in dealing with every kind of situation-especially when overcoming an obstacle.
The Dandelion flower’s message is do not give up, even if those around you keep trying to get rid of you.
