The Aung Myae Oo Monastic School in Sagaing is one of the largest monastic schools in Myanmar and cares for orphans and children from very poor families. They believe that even the poorest children in the world should be able to go to school. The Aung Myae Oo Monastic School in Sagaing has been attempting to do this since 2003. The school started with only 31 students and today has over 3,300 children attending. The school is currently supported by the Hamburg-based Mudita Foundation.
Cem volunteered during 2019 for 2 months at the school, which also houses over 400 children. There, he played with the little ones, taught them and, above all, tried to help them. On his own initiative, he generated donations to buy washing machines, so that the children’s clothes and bed linens could at last be properly washed. The children he encountered suffered from scabies, chickenpox, bed bugs and other skin diseases. To ease their hardship, he bought them new blankets, pillows and sleeping pads, so that each child could have their own bedding for the night.
Now, we hope to provide tables so that the children from 8 classes no longer have to kneel on the floor during their lessons. We will order the tables from a local carpenter, so we can simultaneously support the town’s local residents.
Our donation goal: 1,500 €
What will this be used for? To hire a local carpenter to construct wooden tables for the Aung Myae Oo Monastic School in Sagaing, Myanmar.
