The Situation

The number of orphans and abandoned children in Myanmar is estimated at 1.6 million by UNICEF. Many of these children do not have the opportunity to go to school or obtain basic education. The vast majority of people in Myanmar earn less than three dollars per day.

The Objectives

  2. NLF Education Training Centre plan to further develop a preschool facility by three times the current size, for community children to receive holistic development which will include promoting safe families, child protection, personal hygiene and HIV/AIDS education.
  3. Opening up opportunities in employment for when students enter the workforce, thereby reducing poverty in this community as well as providing post school scholarships and vocational training.
