Building schools in underserved communities in Myanmar
It Really Does Take a Village: Moving the School
                                  
This (very short) video clip shows an amazing community in action for their children's education. Pwe Hnyet San village lies deep in the lush Irrawaddy River Delta. Until four years ago it had no school. With a donation from Silicon Valley start-up Boomerang, BSB worked with the village school committee to erect a primary school and persuade the government to supply teachers. The villagers later built a temporary structure to house middle school grades and raised money to pay the teachers themselves. In recent months, Southeast Asia employees of Schindler, the Swiss elevator firm, donated funds so BSB could build a permanent middle school building. Under the supervision of BSB's tireless country director, Naing Lin Swe, company volunteers, villagers and tradespeople completed the new middle school. But first the temporary school had to be moved (and saved for future use). The video shows how!

Build a School in Burma is now getting ready for the 2020 construction season. We need your help to assist communities like Pwe Hnyet San in improving educational opportunity for their children. Please donate if you can.
 
Watch Pwe Hnyet San villagers move the temporary middle school to make room for their new permanent middle school.
