Many children in mountainous regions of Myanmar, formerly the Asian nation of Burma, live in abject poverty. Often their families are itinerant farmers whose crops don’t yield sufficient food to feed themselves, never mind sell enough to make a sustainable income. And because the children need to help their families work the fields in remote villages, it is difficult for them to attend school.
My husband Kenny and I first learned of the plight of these kids from our good friend and faithful prayer warrior Father Timothy Shing Ling, who is a native of Myanmar.
We decided to join Father Timothy in his mission to build St. Paul’s Montessori Pre-school in Mindat through the Mindat Charity Association. The school will enable 50 to 60 children from poor farming families to be educated and housed in a safe and nurturing environment, discover and deepen their Christian faith, and contribute to the betterment of Myanmar and its people as they grow and choose a vocation.
How You Can Help
The cost to build St. Paul’s Montessori Pre-School is $55,216, and we are currently accepting donations to help complete construction. Your tax-deductible contribution will directly impact the lives of up to 60 impoverished children — not only extending a message of love to them across the miles, but also giving them the tools they need to learn how to take care of themselves, their families and their communities in a sustainable way.
Donations of any amount are welcome and may be submitted through the button below. If you have questions about the project, please feel free to contact me.
Mindat Charity Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
