Why children become out-of-school?

A certain percentage of children in Myanmar still have big difficulties in continuing their education after primary level or they pause in middle school level. They are required to quit from schools due to financial situations of their families, migration, disaster risks, being orphaned, living in unreachable areas etc. We aim to bring these children back to the classrooms instead of working somewhere else as cheap labor force. “Learning makes children brighter while working makes them harder”.

We open the doors for you;
