Summary

Over 70 students in the poorest rural areas of Myanmar, e.g in Chin State, will receive English & leadership development training who otherwise would not have access to such training. Additionally, 20+ teachers will receive teaching and professional development training so that they can continue to provide effective teaching to hundreds of students who are in need of such improved instruction for their future. Also, 300+ students will learn education and scholarship opportunities in the USA.

Challenge

More than half a century long ethnic and religious conflict in Myanmar has left more than 52 million Burmese ravaged with poverty and a serious lack of capacity and human capital that is essential and necessary for a productive workforce to contribute to economic prosperity, equality and freedom. There are not enough school teachers, especially English teachers, available to instruct K-12 students and prepare them for post-secondary education and to join the 21st century workforce.

Solution

This project's philosophy is based on the view that education is a crucial investment utilized to promote social change and sustain democratic society. The ELDP believes that in order for sustainable reform to occur, Myanmar needs to develop a large middle class capable of supporting economic growth and political development which will not only help alleviate many people from poverty but also will help sustain democratic society by teaching English and leadership skills to the 70+ students.

Long-Term Impact

70+ students are better prepared for their post-secondary education and for the 21st century workforce, potentially helping their family get out of poverty whereby contributing not only to the economic prosperity of their village & community, but also will be part of a sustained democratic society, which is ultimately the desired outcome and long-term impact. Teachers will deliver improved quality teaching services to 300+ students every year, promising future for these children and success.
