In Myanmar, summer holidays are in the months of April and May. Normally all schools start again around June 1th. However, due to the military coup, almost all schools in the country have been closed. Government school teachers are on strike, risking their lives. The monastic schools are partly open. Only children from wealthier families can attend private schools. This is already the fourth school year in a row that many children and young people cannot enjoy education. First because of the corona lockdowns and now because of the political situation.
WCC supports underprivileged (orphaned) children and youth up to twenty years old, living in developing country Myanmar. This includes healthy food, clothing, housing, education, hygiene and medical care.
