HELP US GET MORE BURMESE KIDS INTO THE DIGITAL ERA.

For just $15 per child, your support will equip kids with fundamental computer skills.

ABOUT:

1 year ago, we launched a project that trained 39 underprivileged Burmese boys and girls in basic computer skills. In 2014, we raised enough money to put 100 kids through this program.

We set up up a computer education program for underprivileged school kids in the city of Yangon.  We called it the ‘100 Smiles’ Computer Project.

You can help us continue this program by donating money.

HOW TO DONATE:

We can receive donations via or cash or bank transfers and Paypal.



 

Why This Program Is So Important.

The education system in Myanmar is so bad that most kids have little hope of ever getting a decent job one day. I created the program to help get kids skills and training that would get them good jobs in the future.
Myanmar is one of the poorest countries in the world and has been cut off from the global economy for decades. Now that the country is opening up, there is a huge need to get its children education, so that they can become self-sufficient and break the cycle of poverty.

About the School.

Aung Myay Thuka (AMT) is a Monastic School in Yangon.  Like other Monastic schools throughout Myanmar, it gets no public funding and relies entirely on charitable donations.   Many of the kids at AMT have been sent by their families because they cannot afford to raise their children themselves. At AMT, about 300 kids get access to food and education and sometimes housing.

Issues with Paypal:

Due to USA restrictions against Myanmar, we are not able to open a Paypal account for the School itself.  Instead, we are using project lead, Emmanuel Jaquet’s account to get around this. This process will be completely transparent and documented through this site and Facebook.  We have tried numerous times to contact Paypal directly to resolve this issue, but have made no progress.  As soon as we are able, we will open a Paypal account for the School itself.  If you have any ideas on how to solve this or if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
