Helping students from Burma into higher education

We at Thabyay Education Network would like to say a massive thank you to those who have supported our latest project 'Help 200 students from Burma study for university' on GlobalGiving.

Thanks to all your kind support, we've now raised a total of $3,413 for this great project. This money has gone directly into helping our students with university preparation enabling them to study at universities across Asia and gain the skills needed to improve the poor state of public services in their communities and in Burma as a whole.

Pe Myint is one example of a student that is benefiting greatly from your kind support. During the day, she volunteers for a health organization on the Thai- Burma border, doing important health research on alcohol abuse by migrants in the border region. In the evenings, she attends our exam preparation course. Thanks to our exam preparation course, Pe Myint now has the skills required to apply for a public health degree at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand.

There are of course, many other students like Pe Myint whose dreams are made reality as a result of your support for this project.

We have many exciting plans for this year. These include building a website for our fundraising advocates, building networks of fundraising partnerships across the UK and USA and three bonus day campaigns.

The next bonus day is on March 14th 2012 - all donations to this project via www.globalgiving.org will be matched by 30%! We would be delighted if you could share this date with your friends, family and colleagues and help us to encourage more kind people to support this project.

With our best wishes,

Helping Burmese Students into University

We at Thabyay Education Network would like to express our gratitude to those who have supported our latest project 'Help 200 students from Burma study for university' on GlobalGiving.

As of October 2011, we need to raise another $39,955 in order to meet our targets. It is crucial that we meet this target to aid the academic development of students from marginalized communities with poor access to education across Burma. Providing help with university preparation will not only allow our students to receive a quality university education but in the longer run, it will also help foster positive change in Burma.

Aung Moe is one of our current students who has been working hard to prepare for university. In addition to her studies, she is doing an internship with a health organization on the Myanmar border to gain some valuable work experience. Thanks to our exam preparation course, Aung will have the academic skills required to apply for a scholarship to study public health at a university in Bangkok. Aung is just one of many ambitious students whose dreams are made reality as a result of your support for this project.

At present, we have a number of our volunteer alumni who are actively organizing events in universities and community centers to raise money for this project. We hope that these efforts will help us move closer towards meeting our targets. We are most grateful for even the smallest contributions as even US$10 can help support study material costs and transportation costs. We thank you once again for supporting us. If you have any questions about the project, or about our work, please do get in touch.

Don't forget, October the 19th is bonus day- all donations to this project via www.globalgiving.org will be matched by 30%!

With our best wishes,

Helping students from Burma prepare for university

We at Thabyay Education Network would like to gratitude to those who have supported our latest project 'Help 200 students from Burma study for university' on GlobalGiving. 

As of the 8th of July 2011, we need to raise another $39,980 in order to meet our targets.  It is crucial that we meet this target to aid the academic development of students from marginalized communities with poor access to education across Burma. Providing help with university preparation will not only allow our students to receive a quality university education but in the longer run, it will also help foster positive change in Burma.

In the coming months we are launching our volunteer fundraising strategy and hope that this will increase donations to the project considerably, helping us to meet our targets. Remember, even the smallest contribution of US$10 can make a difference- from providing students with the necessary materials for their studies to assisting with transport costs etc. We thank you once again for supporting us.

If you have any questions about the project, or about our work, please do get in touch.

With our best wishes,
