BACKGROUND

Saung Ton Post Primary School, founded in 1986 as a primary school, transitioned to a post primary school in 2016.  Most students, from Saung Ton and Pyin Lu villages, commute by walking or cycling. The school had three buildings; one was in good condition with six classrooms, while the others need replacement due to degradation. These inadequate structures and dark, dirt-floored classrooms led many students to seek education elsewhere. The school was also expanding to middle school classes and urgently required more classroom space.

OUTCOMES

To provide the best possible solution for these growing urgencies, we constructed one new school building with five fully-furnished classrooms and a teachers’ room. The construction of the new building emphasises the importance of education to the whole community and provides an incentive for the children to complete their primary and post primary education. The local community has a high willingness to support the project and to help the students succeed in their education and future.
