The Freedom to Education Project aims to identify and support talented young men and women from Myanmar who carry a vision for the long-term benefit of their people and provide them with the opportunity to pursue higher education.

Through your support, we have been supporting students to pursue college and higher education opportunities since 2009 and we have now seen over 130 young people graduate either from higher secondary school or university.

According to recent reports (December 2023), approximately one third of school-age children in Myanmar are not enrolled in any form of learning, and conflict, displacement, and economic hardships have severely disrupted education over the past three years with potential life-long detrimental impact.

The Freedom to Education Project is a long-term priority, recognising the risks to young people in Myanmar, and the long-term need for educated young people who will go on to serve their communities. This vital project provides a route for further study, even for a few. One student recently commented that she feels as though she is carrying the dreams of 1,000 of her peers by being able to study at this level. 

Currently we have 21 students studying at Year 12 level who will be aiming to graduate this coming year, paving the way for application to university level courses. 

We saw 17 students start university courses in 2023 with partial scholarships from Health & Hope, adding to the six who are currently part way through their studies. They are studying a wide range of courses from nursing to engineering to business.

We heard recently that our student studying at Masters level came top at the end of her first year. Many congratulations to her after so much hard work! 

Thank you so much for your support of the Freedom to Education project. It is truly an investment in the future generations of Myanmar, providing opportunities that simply would not exist without your support.
