Context

Every child has right to go to school. In Myanmar, and especially in Kachin state, the government school has been free for few years. This decision has been increasing the education access for the Myanmar population. However, some criteria curb this growth and the access for poor population is still difficult.

 

Lots of communities don’t have the financial means to support school stationaries and uniforms for their children. Moreover, the school or the teachers can also demand to the parent to pay special fees for activities or school funds. Other communities are living far from the school and need to send their children in boarding house. Because those locations are payable it can be difficult for some families to support. Finally, lots of parent they don’t see the importance of education. They don’t support and help their children in their studies. In Kachin State the school drop-out is very important. The Myanmar rate is one the highest in Asian countries. 

Finally, we can reach out too mains problems:

  • Income problems

  • Children supporting problem 

 

CHAD supports the poor communities in Myitkyina township for education access. We are working on these two aspects.
