Since then, our Scholarship Programme has grown to a point where we now support almost 200 Burmese students all over the world each year, and the generosity of individual supporters has been vital to this growth. They have truly been our partners in the work of enabling Burmese students to continue their education, and gain the skills needed to build a prosperous and democratic Burma when the time comes.
But it is vital that we establish a firmer funding basis for our expanding programme. Aung San Suu Kyi gives us about £20,000 each year, which is the major annual donation from the Trust she established with the Nobel Peace Prize funds and other awards. We are now asking our closest friends and supporters to join a group called the Partners of Prospect Burma who, between them, will match her commitment to our work.
If you can afford a minimum of £25 per month to make this vital investment in Burma's future, please click here for a Partner's application form and send it back to us today at the address at the bottom of this page. You will be investing in the skills of those most committed to joining Aung San Suu Kyi in the peaceful development of her country.
But you don't have to be a museum to qualify. Any company, business, group or organisation with an interest in Burma specifically, or human rights or education generally, can fit the bill.
