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

Kyaw Zin Lin is one of 13 students PCF is supporting this year in Wide Horizons' "leadership and professional education programme". This essential programme takes in aspiring youth from local civil society organisations in Thai-Myanmar border areas and gives them the skills to develop their own community

"After these two years, I will prepare for my 2025 goal, I will do networking with various organisations, political parties, and community schools across Myanmar. At the same time, I will establish youth associations which will work with those community schools.โ€

A big thank you to the three sponsors who came forward for these 13 students: Anneke and Martin Van der Meulen support 9 students and Bert Cesar supports 4 students.

Kyaw Naing Moe is one of 13 students PCF is supporting this year in Wide Horizons' "leadership and professional education programme". This essential programme takes in aspiring youth from local civil society organisations around Thai-Myanmar border areas and gives them the skills to work more effectively to develop their own community

Kyaw Naing Moe grew up seeing children and young people missing out on educational opportunities. He wants to do something about it, and he has a plan.

โ€œAfter I leave Wide Horizons, I will go back to my community, I will implement my dream that I would like to set up an institute called Youth Empowerment Institute (YEI) in my community because there are a lot of children and youth who cannot study and have their education. As my community is located on a small island and the government they do not focus on our communityโ€™s education. The children and the youth from my community lost their education. Most of the children are working as child labours.

Therefore, I would like to establish an institute for those children and youth for their education. I will teach them what I learned from Wide Horizons. That is my plan when I leave Wide Horizons.โ€
