Breaking down the barriers to education – our bridging programme
In many parts of Myanmar education is not valued and children can be removed from schooling early by their parents. In the poorest regions up to 27% have never attended school. Prospect Burma’s outreach work and local partnerships promote the importance of education countrywide, in particular in remote and rural areas.
Universities in Myanmar are not up to global standards, and in order to gain a quality education abroad students need official English language certification and additional training. Outside of urban areas, access to good quality English language courses is scarce, and travel to urban centres difficult and expensive. Prospect Burma works in these communities to provide essential information. We partner with local organisations that can help deliver quality training and certification.
