  • Description


    This is a Monastic Care Center for underprivileged and orphaned children in Myanmar. 3000 children coming everyday in to the school to study. Around 400 children are living in the Center/Monastery. A German NGO is working here since 2015. We are organising this Project. The Children that live here have no parents to take care of them. We started our CARE PROGRAM with 6 burmese employees and a team of volunteers. We look after the health and wellbeing of the kids and have lots of fun with them. You can volunteer in our Waldorf Kindergarten, help our nurse in the clinic room or teach english and computer as you wish. Join our caretaker bathing with the children or simply enjoy playing football with the kids :-)

    Many of our volunteers report that the time spend in our schools was a live changing experience for them. You get to know the kind hearted and generous people of Myanmar. The Kids and teachers are very happy to work together with the foreign volunteers. You can learn a lot of new skills like teaching english or learn playful teaching methods in our Waldorf Kindergarten.
