Wone Pyat village is a Shan and Lisu village in Eastern Shan State. Three years ago the villagers, with their own labor and donations, constructed a bamboo and thatch building for a preschool. The building is too small, and does not provide adequate shelter during rain and wind storms.
Father Francis brought the need to BSB’s attention, the Catholic Diocese of Kyentung were BSB’s partner in the project, to build a sturdy, safe building for the preschool for Wone Pyat village.
Construction was completed in June 2019. Community members have been active in producing play facilities and learning aids for the children.
