A successful year for BVP

To all our supporters,

BVP would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has donated to our ‘Support the Burma Volunteer Program’ GlobalGiving campaign.

2012 was a successful year for BVP. Our project has continued to make a significant impact in the local communities we serve. In 2012 BVP welcomed a total of 73 volunteers with 97 volunteers active in total. On average 35 percent of volunteers that started in 2012 stayed on longer than their initial 3 month commitment. Volunteers taught approximately 1,325 students and 23,400 classroom hours.

BVP volunteers worked at 70 unique organizations located in 6 locations (Mae Sot, Mae Sariang, Chiang Mai,
Mae Hong Son, Mae Tan, Sangkhlaburi) and 5 refugee camps (Mae La, Nupo, Mae La Oon, Mae Ra Moo,
Koung Jor). Our volunteers were primarily involved in developing curriculum and teaching a variety of social science and English language subjects as well as non-teaching tasks conducting research, human rights documentation, report writing and producing funding proposals.

We would like to say thank you to everyone who supported our Global Giving ‘Support the Burma Volunteer Program’ campaign. These funds have helped us to continue serving our local partners and provide volunteers with the necessary support to increase the capacity of civil society organizations from Burma.

Kind Regards,

The Burma Volunteer Program
