Summary

One of our endeavours is to support promising and motivated youngsters who pursue further education to improve their own chances in life and help their families and their community. In 2020 our partner told us about 5 motivated students who have been given the opportunity to study in quality schools in and around the Thai-Burma area. However, these families of these students have no opportunity to raise the funds to cover the additional living expenses which are not covered by the school.

The authorities required the closure of all educational institutions for two months from March 2020, thus delaying the school year until May 2020. During this time, students were expected to return to their home villages but many were not able to do so – their homes are up to 48 hours travel away across the border, which was closed. We also found emergency funding to support these students during this time.

The initial project has now expanded in 2021 to cover 10 students, all desperately needing support for living expenses to continue their studies.

Background

Wide Horizons is located in Mawlamyine, Mon State, Myanmar. The Wide Horizons school was established with the mission to build the capacity of young adults from Myanmar to work effectively in civil society organisations. WH offers a two-year educational programme, divided into a year of academic studies and a work placement.

Sponsors

  • Bert Cesar (2020) | 5.270 THB for one student
  • General Fund (2020) | 21.000 THB for four students

Aung Thein Tun is one of 10 students that PCF supports with scholarships at Wide Horizons' 'leadership and professional education programme'. This vital programme takes in aspiring youths from Thai-Myanmar border areas and gives them the skills to work more effectively to develop their own community.

Without financial support, they would not be able to attend the programme - not just for the school fees but for clothing, transportation, education materials and even toiletries.

I am so happy for my family that they do not need to be worry for my expenditures that you support me while they are running away from the village because the country is not in peace.

I would like to thanks for your support on school fees, studies material and personal expenditures, I cannot know what will happen to my studies and lessons without your support." - Khin Aye

"During 2021 academic year, there were many difficulties to continue my study especially financial because my families could not support me due to living in IDP camp.

I would like to thank you not only for your financial support to me but also for your kindness to people who are struggling for their education." - Nay Ko Zaw
