Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
I have been to Myanmar several times and what I observed is majority of the people are in substandard living condition due to people holding onto a low paying job due to low market demand. The majority are not able to come on par with the world in going into a high demand market as they are restricted in their knowledge and education level.
(The restriction is because of the financial institution are not assisting enough)
The process of their education system is from preschool to high school. However their culture of teachers will teach only in the most superficial way and collect tuition fees outside school hours to teach students who can pay them. It's very unhealthy as the country do not nurture bright and capable students but to those students who are better off in their finance.
Once they had finished their high school, they are either out to work due to financial difficulties or proceed to local or overseas university for further studies.
Ever wonder about tuition/study loans?
The financial institution are worried about borrowers not able to pay off their debts as such placed high benchmarks for those who are borrowing money from them. One of the examples are land deeds or home deeds, but majority of people are staying in a rented unit. As such they are trapped in the cycle of poverty.
How will this campaign help?
Your contribution will help millions of people living in Myanmar to have a better life. In terms of living standard, education and health. With this campaign we can help a part of the world to help us in making a better world to live in too.
