New challenges in Myanmar

MyLibrary - a complete school library plus Wi-Fi
MyLibrary - a complete school library plus Wi-Fi

It has been a year since the Myanmar military staged an attempted coup and jailed the country's elected leaders. The country remains in turmoil, with the education, health and finance systems near collapse.  The International Rescue Committee estimate that more than 14 million people will need humanitarian assistance in 2022 and 300,000 people have been displaced from their homes because of the coup.

Teachers are torn between not wanting to work in government schools but still wanting to deliver an education to the children in their communities. There is no clear answer, everyone is making their own decisions.  We have stopped our work with universities for now. We are carrying on our work in schools and setting up new MyLibraries in non-state schools in the border regions like Kayin, Kachin and Rakhine State, working with the Norwegian Refugee Council and Give A Hand.

The effects of the coup are both long reaching and devastating to the ordinary people of Myanmar. We will continue to help the teachers of the next generation the best we can and are very grateful to you for your continued generosity.

The photo, taken in January, shows children learning with MyLibrary. The MyLibrary digital library is the white disc on the tabletop. Inside the library are thousands of resources designed to support school children in Myanmar, all adapted to work in places with no internet connection, like this school in Magway.

Thank you for supporting young people in Myanmar through the last year.
