A new five room building will allow expansion of this middle school to include high school, for this remote village near the Indian border in Chin State, Myanmar.
The school serves six villages, and before the new building, offered classes only through the 8th grade. The school also needed various improvements, including classroom partitions, to improve the learning environment.
The nearest high school was is quite far, 2 1/2 hours by 4WD vehicle, and the students had to board there to attend. Most families could not afford this. The village education committee had asked their government for a new building for high school but were told the government had no available funds, and no plan to help.
This project was made possible by generous donations of Boomerang, Baydin Inc. (Mountain View, California) and Moah Aye, and with the active participation and support of the village. Construction on the new high school building began in early 2020, and has now been completed.
