MYANMAR'S PRIMARY SCHOOL IN THE DELTA REGION
IN MARCH 21 - 28,
The purpose of this tour is for volunteers and sponsors
to visit the Inn Ma Ywar Lay Primary School in the Inn
Ma Village Group in the Nyaung Tone Township to review
the progress of the construction of a replacement school
and to appreciate the environment and economy of the
villagers needing help to educate their young children.
This area is part of the Ayeyarwaddy delta region which
was affected by Cyclone Nagris in 2008.
Inn Ma Ywar Lay Primary School of 0.80 acres has
around 101 students (38 boys and 63 girls) being taught
by 2 teachers (including the principal) and one
assistant teacher. The school provides primary school
education to the children of the remote rural villages
(Ta Naw, Kone Tan and Son Ta Lote). The population is
around 730 and the occupation is mainly rice farming,
fishing and odd jobs.
It is important that the young children get basic
education so that they can help their families and be an
asset to the country. Therefore, volunteers from one of
the Myanmar film companies and Future Foundation from
Singapore have raised funds and are now constructing a
new replacement school as it is run-down. The school is
located south of Yangon and is accessed by car, boat and
The tour will be confirmed as soon as possible. The
dates are tentatively from March 21, 2011 (Monday) to
March 27, 2011 (Sunday). The travel takes around 4
hours from Yangon by car, boat and motor-bike. This
tour will not be appropriate for travellers who want
luxury and air-conditioned accommodation and facilities.
After the school visit, the group will proceed to spend
2 nights at the famous Myanmar's beautiful white-sandy
beaches and stay at the
Bengal Resort at Ngwe Saung before returning to
Yangon and Singapore.
Volunteers and sponsors are now
building a replacement primary school in the Ayeyarwaddy Delta Region to
educate the young ones in the Inn Ma Village Group of Nyaung Tone
Township, Myanmar. The school is located south of Yangon and between Ngwe
Saung and Yangon.
Existing primary school is rundown and
a new one is being built in 2010. It will be completed in late 2011.
