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 built seven new schools and three teachers’ cottages in 2018 in the villages of War Panpaloe, Htan Taw Oo, Ku Toe Sade, Own Don, Ye Twin Kaung, Patama Ywa, Nan Thum, Baw Nin Ywa Thit, and Taung Pe. We also built a rural medical clinic in the village of Su Pan Inn.
Since 2012 we have built 42 schools and 11 teachers’ cottages. To date, we have provided school buildings for 4,700 children. Our 2019 building plan includes seven more schools, two teachers’ cottages and a rural health clinic.
