Our Mission

Image

Myanmar is one of the poorest nations in Southeast Asia and suffers from a dire shortage of adequate educational facilities. Myanmar/Burma Schools Project Foundation builds more than thirty classrooms each year in rural villages in Myanmar with the support of Myanmar education officials, local villagers, teachers and construction crews. A key objective of our projects is to provide equal access to centres of education for both girls and boys. Fulfilling our vision expands the range of life opportunities for Myanmar’s rural children.

What We Do

From 2012-2019, MBSPF has built a total of 48 new school buildings that provide educational infrastructure for a total of 6,242 children. Additionally, we have done renovations at 14 existing school buildings, built 12 teachers’ cottages and put in water wells and solar electricity as needed. Since 2017, we have also built 3 rural health clinics. In 2020, we are building six new schools, including two high schools, and one medical clinic.

Representatives of Myanmar/Burma Schools Project Foundation travel to Myanmar regularly to visit completed projects and determine suitable locations for the upcoming projects for the current year. We offer our assistance with the support of the Myanmar government’s education department and the local villagers and teachers. Two Myanmar construction crews, one from the Mandalay area and the other from the Kalaw area. build all of our projects.

Our History

During 2009-2011, MBSPF founder Roger Brain visited Myanmar four times with members of our sister charity in the United States, Myanmar Schools Project (MSP) and assisted their efforts to improve educational opportunities. During his travels to Myanmar, Roger saw first-hand the dire need for school buildings in the poor and underprivileged villages in the country.

In 2010, Roger incorporated the Canadian Myanmar/Burma Schools Project Foundation (MBSPF) under the Society Act of British Columbia.

The Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency granted charitable registration to MBSPF in 2012. MBSPF funds schools separately from MSP projects although as sister charities they share the same vision.  In 2017, MBSPF received permission to build rural medical clinics also and built its first clinic in Myin Htaik village.

Roger and other MBSPF Directors travel regularly to Myanmar on behalf of MBSPF to inspect school construction and locate new sites to create educational opportunities for the young children.

Each visit they make strengthens MBSPF’s ties with the local villagers, our agent and construction teams in Myanmar, and the country’s Ministry of Education.

Myanmar/Burma Schools Project Foundation (MBSPF) is a Canadian Registered Charity (#80949 0865 RR0001) that issues official tax receipts for donations from Canadian taxpayers who wish to support the construction of schools in Myanmar.
