Sprouting Seeds Learning Centre



Sprouting Seeds Learning Centre will provide a diverse range of practical life-skills training for Myanmar youth (focused primarily for girls from remote areas and ethnic backgrounds), which are rooted in principles of sustainability, preservation of traditional wisdom, and positive social engagement with a focus on youth and woman's empowerment as well as self-awareness through the Sprouting Seeds Learning Centre cafe, bakery, eco-shop and training centre.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

After 60 years of military dictatorship and an outdated and abusive educational system, Myanmar's youth are not prepared to engage in critical developments within the country. Youth lack basic critical thinking, knowledge of traditional wisdom and practical life skills. With the rapid opening and development of the country, young girls in particular, from remote and ethnic backgrounds have little access to opportunities that will ensure them a place in Myanmar's changing economy and culture.

How will this project solve this problem?

With a holistic and integrated approach, Sprouting Seeds will provide a space and trainings where these youth can gain practical life skills rooted in principles of sustainability, environmental stewardship and traditional wisdom while engaging in a process of self-awareness and personal transformation which will support not only their well being but empower their transition into leadership roles within their local communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

Participants will gain necessary skills to confidently engage in society and help change not only their own lives, but countless others through their local communities, schools, monasteries, churches and mosques, with necessary knowledge and skills for the creation of new employment opportunities, a deeper understanding of sustainable development and need for preservation of traditional wisdom and culture.
