For over 70 years, Myanmar has experienced intense internal conflicts, causing the deaths of many people, and the displacement of many thousands more. Over the last three years, international scrutiny has been turned to the reaction of the new democratically elected government to ongoing violence, most notably the 2017 events causing the fleeing of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya from Rakhine State to Bangladesh. Prospect Burma has always been and remains a non-political organisation. We are dedicated to the positive rebuilding of the country, and the creation of a peaceful and democratic future for all people. We believe that the best way to achieve this is through education. Prospect Burma is actively diverse, and we support people regardless of gender, ethnicity or religion. In 2020 we are excited to be launching a new project in Rakhine State, helping us to reach even more people, in one of the poorest areas of the country.
