By the year 2025, Myanmar/Burma Schools Project Foundation (MBSPF) will provide safe and healthy educational infrastructure for 10,000 children in rural Myanmar communities.
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.
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.
