Helping Others Help Themselves
Building schools, Wells & More throughout Rural Myanmar
As a charitable trust we financially support projects that empower the people of Myanmar as they:
Build their own schools
Drill their own clean water wells
Start their own small businesses (micro finance)
Receive education to better support their families
& Improve their overall hygene/health with sanitary latrines
We honor & respect the local customs of the people we serve. We thank them for allowing us to be their servants.
We have learned that by empowering communities to complete their own projects, in their own ways, we are better able to help them guaranteed their own future successes. The financial & accountability tools we provide allow people to work for themselves to improve their lives and the lives of generations to come.
They provide the will. We provide the way.
We are excited about this year’s project: the YWCA Women’s Education Center.
We are grateful to everyone who has contributed thus far, but we still need more help to fully fund this worthy project. The education that women will receive at this new education center will change the lives of countless families throughout Myanmar. Please help us by donating here. Thank you!
#1 - We help others help themselves
- We buy school building materials and pay for other necessary expenses
- Villages build their own schools/wells/latrines
We have found that when a village works together to build their own school it becomes their school. They take ownership over it. This empowers communities to maximize the benefits of the schools and to seamlessly integrate them into their culture and ways of life.
#2 - To Support projects that provide: sustainability, improvements to overall health & better educational opportunities
#3 - To Support projects that empower communities to permanently improve their lives
This year we will be building a Women’s Education Center in central Myanmar for the YWCA, an wonderful organization already doing a lot of good in this country. This education center will help them do even more for the people of Myanmar!
#4 - To partner only with trustworthy & proven effective, local, national or international humanitarian organizations
Essential to upholding this principle is accountability for the completion of projects and the funds expended.
It's important to us that we know the help the Trust provided has been used as intended. As such, we typically visit villages in Myanmar once a year to celebrate the completion of specific projects. It has been extremely humbling for us to witness the gratitude the people have for the help they have received.
Thanks to past contributions we have build:
