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

Bhone Htet Arkar is one of 10 students that PCF supported at the Wide Horizons' "leadership and professional education programme". This vital programme takes in aspiring youths from local civil society organisations around Thai-Myanmar border areas and gives them the skills to work more effectively to develop their own community.

He grew up seeing never-ending conflict in western Myanmar. He wants to do something about it, and he has a plan.

"My people are facing a lot of issues such as civil war and poverty. My plan is to set up a Public Relations school to help local people learn how to communicate and come together to discuss and solve issues.

At Wide Horizons, not only can I improve my skills in English, Computer and Community development but also there are many other kinds of training that I can learn from, in order to take that knowledge back to my community."

Bhone Htet Arkar recently graduated and he sent us a thank you letter saying - "Thank you very much for supporting me. I want to give you a promise that I will do all the best."

We wish this motivated 22-year-old all the best in pursuing his dream of helping his community.

This is the impact that ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฌ ๐—˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€ can have on opportunities for the next generation of changemakers.

A big thank you to the 3 sponsors who came forward for these 10 students: Tony Mann, an anonymous donor and Bert Cesar.

Hpaulu Brang Shawg is a 25 years-old student amongst 10 students that PCF supports at Wide Horizons' "leadership and professional education programme". This vital programme takes in aspiring youths from local civil society organisations around Thai-Myanmar border areas and gives them the skills to work more effectively to develop their own community.

"My dream is to be able to provide affordable health care services to the communities. After graduation, I will return to my host organisation to enable better public health, provide equitable medical services and strengthen health care capacity.

Most chronic disease patients (e.g.- HIV and TB patients) require long-term medication, but those patients have difficulty receiving the medicine. I want to do health care activities to support their nutritional needs and transportation costs so they can access medication regularly."

This is the impact that ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฌ ๐—˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€ can have on opportunities for the next generation of changemakers.

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.
