Prospect Burma has received many enquiries about the current situation. Our students, their families, and the people of Burma are at the front of our thoughts and prayers as we continue to hope for a peaceful solution.
Prospect Burma was formed 18 years ago just after the 1988 uprising to keep the flame of education alive for Burma. Over that time we have helped to educate over 1000 Burmese students many of whom have gone on to help Burma both from within and outside Burma. We support a teacher training programme in Thailand, training teachers who in turn go into Burma and train more teachers, an English language school in Mai Ja Yang and in Delhi. We are endorsed by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi who donates funds from her Nobel Peace Prize towards the education of Burmese students. You can read more about our activities on the website but as we hope and pray for Burma we end with the words from one of our students.
" Prospect Burma's scholarship changed my whole life. Without it, I would not have been able to graduate. I dedicate my knowledge, skills and the rest of my life to work for the restoration of democracy, peace, justice and prosperity in Burma"
