BACKGROUND

Rural Indigenous Sustainable Education (RISE) is an organisation established by a coalition of indigenous civil society organisations (CSOs) with a shared mission to ensure high-quality, culturally appropriate education for indigenous children in Myanmar. Decades of discrimination, inequality, and political and social conflicts in Myanmar have led to poor infrastructure and inadequate access to education, particularly in remote areas. RISE aims to train teachers from indigenous backgrounds and had to suspend its Teacher Preparation Course due to facility issues after relocating to Myanmar.

The new school campus was built on this piece of land.

OUTCOMES

Together with our in-country partner, Child’s Dream, we contributed funds towards supporting RISE with one school building (with four fully-furnished classrooms), a two-storey boarding house, a kitchen, eight toilets, two shower rooms, two storerooms, and a water system. The construction was successfully completed on 6 April 2020.
