ACHIEVEMENTS | STUDENT STORIES
Since our foundation in 1989:
We have supported the education of over 1,300 Burmese students and enabled them to qualify as nurses, public health workers, teachers, journalists, engineers, human rights specialists, and lawyers, among other professions.
Some of our alumni have gone on to work for non-government health and education organisations inside Burma and with refugees on the borders, as well as for campaigning organisations for human rights, freedom of speech and democracy in Burma.
Others have gone on to higher research and teaching positions, or are adding professional experience to their qualifications until they are able to return to Burma.
We support English language courses inside Burma to enable more students to gain admission to higher education courses abroad.
In the words of one of our graduate students:
“We have one thing set in our hearts: our country will need us dearly one day, and the future of Burma is in our hands. Prospect Burma plays a vital role in making our dreams come true and building our future democratic Burma.”
