The training centre is now in use!

Launch of Education for All in the Training Centre
Launch of Education for All in the Training Centre

We're delighted that the Training Centre is now in daily use despite there still being a few jobs left both inside and outside to complete the building. 

While the monsoon rains are in full swing, the project teams have been busy launching the new Education for All project, designed to transform the pass rate amongst Year 10 students from 30 rural villages in western Myanmar (Burma). You can read more about Education for All at this link.

Meanwhile, the construction teams are making steady progress with finishing the staffing quarters under the new roof construction.  The redesign provided a further 4,200 square feet of accommodation, allowing for staff and visitors to stay on site. This has provided a safe place away from the strong winds which have threatened to topple the original office building over the last few months. 

Once the rains have stopped, the exterior walls will be rendered and painted to help protect the concrete, make the building fully watertight and give it that finished look.

We've just received confirmation of a generous offer to equip one of the rooms of the building as an IT suite, which will arrive into Lailenpi around the same time as the first mobile data connection is turned on in the village.  This will provide a rich learning environment for the hundreds of people that attend training at the centre every year.

We are still hoping to raise around $15,000 to complete the building, which will support our work across the fields of health, education and food security in western Myanmar.  If you are able to help us reach this target, or would like any further information about the project, please contact our Executive Director on: chris.jones@healthandhope.org

Thank you so much for your support!
