Voice

Ye Lin Htun (13), pupil E4Y

“Even though I enjoyed going to school I had to stop after fifth grade. My parents could not afford the tuition fee anymore. Suddenly I now have the chance to continue my education in the E4Y. I am over the moon.”

Marco Rima, actor

“During my travel in Myanmar I visited the E4Y-programme. School can be so much fun. The E4Y-programme makes the eyes of children in Myanmar shine, just like I wish to see it in our children’s eyes. A great project.”

My way

Ruedi Schmid and his wife Angelika shot a film in Yangon. The film (12 minutes) shows impressively the effort a Burmese girl puts into going to school and what academic education means to her as well as for the life of her family.
