Summary

Whispering Seed provides Holistic Education and Sustainability teacher trainings for teachers from remote areas that lack access to materials and new knowledge. These trainings will assist the people of Myanmar at this critical point, towards an equal, just and sustainable society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

For decades the education system in Myanmar has been neglected, leaving it rooted with ineffectual and outdated methods. The country only recently opened to the wider world and the people are eager for progress, students enthusiastic to learn and teachers excited to see change. Whispering Seed provides a catalyst for this change spreading practical solutions through trainings focused on Holistic Education and Sustainable Living which bridge home, school and community.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through our trainings, communities leaders, teachers and youth exam the issues facing their emerging nation, such as: outdated teacher-centered education, loss of cultural identity due to influence of western culture, environmental degradation, and unhealthy foreign investment. These teachers then return to their remote communities with new found awareness of old problems and generate innovative models for education and sustainable living which are crucial to the development of the country.

Potential Long Term Impact

WS will train hundreds of teachers from various religious and ethnic backgrounds, supporting them with the proper materials, resources, and educational knowledge. These teachers will then reach out to their communities, and ultimately to thousands of children throughout all of Burma. The country is reshaping itself, like iron in the forge it can be worked into a new image; by reaching out to teachers involved in all aspects of education, we can will help Myanmar become a free and equal society.
