Myanmar Lab

On March 13, 2015 by heartchamber

Zar Kyi Min works at a school at  where children have never seen or worked with a computer. With the help of Virtual World School, and donations from French students at St. Thomas Aquinas High school, we collected twenty computers, equipped them with educational software and sent them on their way.

Zar has just written her thesis on technology in education, and I’m thrilled to be working with her. This is what Zar has to say:

“Computers are still out of reach for the majority of kids in Myanmar. My dream is to create an opportunity for them to get familiar with computers and use them appropriately in their learning.” “Nelson Mandela said that ‘ Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world’. That is absolutely true, a child without education is like a bird without wings. Only with Education, we can change the fate of our country in the near future. I do believe that ‘Madagascar in My Heart’ can create the brighter future for our kids by helping them to get education.”
