Myanmar is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. In the villages we visit, classrooms are over-crowded. Sanitation is dire. The buildings are in disrepair. And, like parents everywhere, the villagers want their children to be well educated.
MBSPF constructed seven new schools and four teachers’ cottages in 2017 in the villages of They Phyu Chaung, Ph Pha, Ye Twin Kaung, Mye Net, Patama Ywa, Wah Bo Yee, and U Min. We also built a rural medical clinic in the village of Myin Htaik. Since 2012 we have built 35 schools and eight teachers’ cottages. To date, we have provided school buildings for 3,700 children. We are building seven more schools, four teachers’ cottages and a rural health clinic in 2018 and early 2019.
