To date in 2020, MBSPF has built four new schools in the villages of Kyawe Kan, Da Naung Pin, Baw Nin Ywar Thit and Pyawetaung . We have just completed a new rural medical clinic in Kyaut Sint village. We are about to start new schools in two villages, Inn Mie and Gwe Tauk Pin.
Inn Mie village is about 25 miles to the southeast of Kalaw. It has 150 households with about 600 villagers who belong to the Taung Yoe tribe. The economy is based on the farming of ginger, garlic and butterfly beans. There are 70 students and 4 teachers in an old school built by the villagers in 1988. The teachers’ bamboo cottage is in bad shape as well as the school. We are going to build a new 60′ x 30′ school and a new teachers’ cottage here starting in late October.
