A Bridge to Higher Education in 2013

As this is our first report of 2013, I would like to begin by thanking everyone for their support in 2012.  In the last year we were able to provide course services to 192 students studying from 18 different locations in Burma including Yangon Division, Mandalay Division, Kachin State, Chin State, Shan State, Mon State, and Arakan State.   Forty-one of our students achieved a high enough score for university entrance on an official TOEFL test and are now applying for scholarships.  We could not have made these achievements without your help and we are deeply thankful for your donations.   

"I would like to thank you so much for your help in helping me improve my English and get a TOEFL certificate. I received a scholarship and am now studying for my master's in public health.  My dreams are coming true and I could not have done this without your help.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!" -May Thet

This month, we are starting our first semester of 2013 with over 60 new students.  We are extremely excited about the possibilities for this year. We are developing two new courses, upgrading our online learning management system, forming new partnerships and outreach initiatives, and as access to internet continues to improve, we will continue to expand our geographic scope to be able to offer our courses to more students in underserved areas. 

Thank you again for your help and support. The next bonus day is on March 13th 2013 - 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,

Michael Braverman-Scult
