Htone Gyi Primary & Middle Schools
Htone Gyi's very active and involved school committee wanted to expand their children's overcrowded school (some classes were held outdoors). BSB partnered with Myanmar NGO Karen Women Empowerment Group and the parents to build a new classroom building and renovate the old one. After the successful expansion of their primary school, parents asked BSB to partner again to help enlarge Htone Gyi School to middle school grades. Now children can finish their middle school grades without having to leave their families.
