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, Nan Thum, Baw Nin Ywa Thit, and Taung Pe. We also built a rural medical clinic in the village of Su Pan Inn.
Htan Taw Oo
Htan Taw Oo village is an isolated village in the Mandalay region of Myanmar. The villagers told us we were the first foreigners to ever come to their village. The existing school compound had a large, old school building that required renovations plus crowded bamboo classroom buildings. We built a new 30′ x 80′ middle school for 136 students and renovated the old school building. The villagers greeted us with an overwhelming celebration when we visited again to see the new school.
