PROJECT

This project, started up in 2002, aims to support schooling of children in Myanmar.  To reach this purpose we’re supporting centers and school where children are attending, through the provision of didactical materials, food and hygiene materials, partial contribution to teachers salaries and organizing professional trainings to operators.

Currently we’re supporting 4 siblings centers, 2 monastic schools and 1 community school.

 

CONTEXT

In Myanmar children are starting primary school at 6 years old age and the government is not allowing to any NGO to run schools, everything is nationalized, only some high school are run by for profit organization, for nonprofit organizations it is still forbidden to enter schools management.

Lack of this kind of education, jointed with families poverty in rural areas, leads to a very high school drop-out rate, more than 50%, and consequently a concerning illiteracy rate.
