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 eight new schools in 2016 in the villages of Setoe, Sekalay, Nwar Chan Gyi Kone, Nwar Shar Yoe, Pwe Hla Shwe Gone, Kon Hla, Nyaung Gyo and Myay Char. Since 2012 we have built 28 schools and four teachers’ cottages. To date, we have provided school buildings for 3,000 children. We are building six more schools, a teachers’ cottage and a rural health clinic in 2017.
