Build a School in Burma helped this village build its first primary school in 2016, children previously had to walk to other villages to attend school. Silicon Valley tech start-up Boomerang donated the funds for Pwe Hnyet San Primary School.
The village school committee recently asked BSB to help with a new ‘post-primary’ school (grades 5 through 7) building, so the school can be expanded to include older students. Villagers erected a temporary wood and thatch building last year that will be replaced by the new structure. Employees of a Singapore-based company have volunteered to donate the money, and to come to Burma to help start construction on a new building. BSB is working to organize this project, and the community is excited about a new building so their children can continue their education while living at home with their families.
Construction is planned to begin in late 2019.
Volunteers moved the old shed that once housed the local school, so a new school can be built onsite. By "move," we mean literally lifting it up and moving it out of the way. In Pwe Hnyet San village, Myanmar.
