Myanmar desperately needs more humanitarian assistance from the international community, with the UN humanitarian response plan having just 10.4% of the funding needed.
Here at Children of the Mekong, we have decided to launch the Informal Classes Programme, providing education outside of state-run programmes. This programme involves 6,300 students and 300 teachers in 29 locations.
Between January and October 2022, 6,300 students from primary school through to secondary, along with 300 teachers, will benefit from this project which covers 29 different locations. The ultimate aim of the project is to prepare children and youths to return to the classroom when the school system reverts back to normalcy.
