Overview We at Thabyay Education Network's Arohana Scholarship Fund would like to extend our gratitude to all of you who have donated to our 'University Scholarships for Students from Burma' project on GlobalGiving. Our mission Our Mission is to educate, develop, inspire, connect, and empower individuals and organizations that are change-makers in South-East Asia, with a primary focus on Myanmar. We seek to achieve this through knowledge creation, innovative instruction, guided skills expansion, and by forging connections to networks, information and opportunities. We are inspired to create far-reaching transformations for and with the people of Myanmar. Scholarships Administration The Thabyay Education Foundation administers university scholarship programs on behalf of a wide range of donors, and operates its own scholarship fund. These programs provide scholarships to selected candidates from Myanmar to study at universities in the Asian region. The Thabyay Education Foundation also provides a range of technical and logistical support to ensure the successful operation of the programs and the most effective distribution of scholarship funds. In the course of administering scholarships, the Thabyay Education Foundation builds relationships with universities in Asia, securing places, fee waivers and, in some cases, full scholarships for students from Myanmar. Student Support Through a network of information centers and representatives in Myanmar, and its website, the Thabyay Education Foundation disseminates information about scholarships and opportunities to study abroad, provides academic counseling and offers support in applying to universities and scholarship programs. The Thabyay Education Foundation helps students settle into university and get the most out of their academic studies and organizes an annual conference enabling scholarship students at different universities in different countries to build networks, compare experiences, and meet experts in a range of relevant fields. The award recipient was as follows: Recipient: Name: Lin Age: 24 Sex: Male Ethnicity: Karen Subject Studied: Environmental Sustainability University: Melaka, Malaysia Award Amount: US$ 200 Award Type: Partial scholarship N.B. Names of award recipients have been changed to protect his/her identy. Lin attended Melaka International Youth Dialogue at Melaka, Malaysia in June 2016 with partial support from GlobalGiving. The topic of the dialogue is Environmental Sustainability. The theme of this dialogue is to discuss and share the opinion and knowledge of the young people on the environment around the world to attain the goals of Environmental Sustainability in the future. One hundred and sixty of young people from thirty six countries joined the event and it earned a Declaration of Melaka International Youth Dialogue (MIYD). In his own words "Without getting scholarship from GlobalGiving, I could not fulfill my dream. Experiences such as the first time oversea travelling, international dialogue, knowledge exchanges, problem solving, adaptation on the unexpected situation, taking the leading role among the people from different nations and keeping in touch with new colleagues from MIYD till now is the essence what I had done in my life". Future Plans The Arohana Scohlarship Fund remains committed to helping key community actors gain access to appropriate higher education to optimize their positive impact in Burma in key sectors including health care, education, community development, rights and media. The Arohana Scholarship Fund is currently waiting for further funds to be received from GlobalGiving before the Selection Committee meets to decide on further scholarship awards. Closing Statement We hope that this report shows clearly the potential of these scholarship recipients to become catalysts for incremental social change in Burma, and that you can appreciate the direct link between quality higher education and grassroots development in communities in Burma. We also hope that it demonstrates that even the smallest contribution of US$ 10 can make a difference in terms of keeping a Burmese scholarship student in university education. We would like to reiterate our gratitude to all of you who have helped raise funds for this project by making donations and spreading the word. We hope that this report will inspire you to continue to support us in the future. The beneficiaries of these awards, the students, have individually expressed their gratitude to us for the support they have received. We would like to pass on their thanks to you. If you have any questions about this report, or about our work, please do get in touch.

Overview

We at Thabyay Education Network’s Arohana Scholarship Fund would like to extend our gratitude to all of you who have donated to our ‘University Scholarships for Students from Burma’ project on GlobalGiving.

 After the deduction of GlobalGiving administrative fees, we have now received a total of approximately US$ 67,752 in disbursements from GlobalGiving for the University Scholarships for Students from Burma project (funds are received over time in Thai Baht at different exchange rates, so USD figures can only be approximately calculated).

 By the 14th September 2015, we had disbursed approximately US$ 65,927 to scholarship awards.

Selection and awards

Since the last report on 14th September, the Arohana Scholarship Fund Committee has made one further awards totalling approximately US$ 595.

 The total funds now raised by the ‘University Scholarships for Students from Burma’ project have therefore supported 61 awards enabling 51 students from marginalised communities across Burma to start or continue their Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD studies at universities across Asia.

 The recipients of these awards comprise 25 women and 26 men, ranging in age from 16 to 51 (average age of approximately 23, representing nine ethnic groups, studying 30 different majors at 18 different universities in 5 countries across Asia).

The award recipient was as follows:

Recipient:

Name: Chaw

Age: 34

Sex: Female

Ethnicity: Karen

Subject Studied: Business Administration

University:University of Thai Chamber Commerce

Award Amount: US$ 595

Award Type: Partial scholarship

N.B. Names of award recipients have been changed to protect their identities.

 In her own words “Some people may think business is profit for the boss only. As for me, I think business profits to every consumer, producer, worker or office staff and government. Farmer will produce rice and he will sell the extra rice to get some money. He will spend his money for his other needs.  Merchant will buy farmer’s extra rice and sell again to a company. The company will buy rice and sell it spread over the supermarket or store. While the process was installed, every single person who involved in the process will get benefit as wages. Even government will get tax from the process. Doing business mean not only profit, you are offer convenience to consumer and offer jobs and income for many employee and producer (e.g. Farmer). Without merchant and company doing business the farmer might have to throw away his extra rice because he can’t eat his all rice. He may got sick and die because he don’t have money to buy medicine or get treatment. The employee won’t have any job to do and his income will effect to his family who depend on him. The government may get less money to develop his country either. The power of business can provide convenience to all people who eat the food. Some companies donate some of their benefit to Non-Government Organization to provide education, health and some other needs to poor community”.

 The Arohana Scohlarship Fund remains committed to helping key community actors gain access to appropriate higher education to optimize their positive impact in Burma in key sectors including health care, education, community development, rights and media.
