Our child sponsorship programmes play a major part in giving education to the most underprivileged children in Myanmar. Sponsoring a child provides:
- Access to education in the most isolated areas, especially among the ethnic minorities such as the Shan, Chin, Kachin, Karen, and in the country’s refugee camps (sanctuaries where families can live when their villages are in the civil war zone).
- Supporting students in elementary school, middle school, and high school, enabling them to continue their studies by paying for the additional classes required and giving them the educational help and guidance to succeed.
- Guiding and supporting young people through professional training courses (English studies, the hotel industry…) to enable them to enter the workforce and help them develop as people in their own right so that they can be open to the world around them and become part of society.
Children of the Mekong also run every year one-off projects, such as the construction and renovation of foster homes, for example, allow us to improve the environment in which our sponsored young people study and live.
