Opened in 2008 in Yangon, the capital of Myanmar, the Aung San Culture Center is being used as a village hall for residents. There is a village library for students, youths, and young housewives, and classrooms for computer education. And there are held gatherings of residents, as well as conferences of government offices.
In the study room in Yangon’s Shwe Pyi Thar, more than 30 children during the semester and over 40 children during the vacation are fulfilling their dreams of learning. School supplies and scholarships are also provided through the partnership business. We are preparing to expand the classroom in order that more children can join us.
Cyclone Nargis, that hit Myanmar in the summer of 2008, has left over 13,000 people injured. The Myanmarese pastor of Yangon Jeil Church began taking care for 12 orphans at that time, and now they are living with 15 orphans. There is a kindergarten in Setmoosong Church, also known as Thanlyin Church, where many workers from the nearby industrial complexes attend. 18-20 children are learning Myanmarese language, arithmetic, art, songs and dance.
There are many young people coming from the countryside and working in the nearby industrial complexes on the suburb of Yangon. We are now building dormitories for them. Upon completion, it will be able to accommodate over 20 people in 10 rooms.
