Training Centre complete: We did it together!

Over the last two years the community in Lailenpi has been working hard to re-build all that was destroyed by Cyclone Mora in 2017. The completion of the Health & Hope Training Centre has been a mammoth effort, funded by your incredible generosity, and achieved through the incredible hard work of the local community.

With the final funding for the project now raised, we have been able to finish the final elements of the building including plumbing and electrics, as well as fitting toilets and showers. 

The Health & Hope Training Centre is essential to our work. The centre playing a critical role in the delivery of Health & Hope’s activities in Myanmar. Even before it’s completion, over the last 18 months, the building has housed four Area Co-ordinator training workshops, four Traditional Birth Attendant trainings, agricultural training, community events and offices for the local Health & Hope staff. The building is also currently acting as a temporary base for Hope Clinic, as the clinic building is in desperate need of repair. 

Last year, the training centre also supported 96 students through the first year of the Education for All project. The results of the Year 10 exams have recently been released and show that the pass rate of students from the project was three times higher than that achieved by the government school in Lailenpi and it matched those of the schools in Yangon, an urban city with much better school provision.

Thanks to your investment in the Health & Hope training centre, 27 young people now have the opportunity to continue their education and secure employment. You can read more about these results and the students that have been supported on our website here. 

Over the last six months, the training centre was used to provide accommodation for these students. However, this reduces the centre’s capacity with the loss of the main training hall. In February 2020, thanks to progress made on the Training Centre, complementary building work on an accommodation hall started, funded by the Guernsey Overseas Aid & Development Commission. The accommodation hall completes the rebuilding work from Cyclone Mora, providing facilities for up to 160 students.

We are so grateful for your partnership with us in rebuilding the Health & Hope Training Centre. Through this project, you have not only enabled us to build an impressive building that will stand the test of time, but your generosity and support for this project will provide vital training and support to a generation of people within the vulnerable communities that we serve.

Now the building is complete, we will no longer be raising funds for this project. However, we look forward to journeying with you on one of our other projects in the future.
