Home is where the Heart is

Featured

Student in the Chin HillsHome is meant to be a safe haven where children learn to love, respect, trust, and understand other individuals. Sadly, many children from rural Myanmar grow up in institutions in the cites in order to get education. We believe children need a family around them to develop healthy. That is why we support schools in rural villages so that children can grow up in their own families. Home is where your heart is.

Christmas Project ’13

A village far into the Chin HillsJoin us as we celebrate Christmas with all the children in the schools that we support in the Chin Hills. About 600 children are anxiously waiting for our staff to come the long way from Yangon to visit them for Christmas. They will bring each child a gift; this has become a tradition in all these schools. This year the gift will contain a sweater, socks, a tooth brush and tooth paste, a warm blanket, crayons, a pencil, a drawing book, and some snacks. All this for only US $7. Find out how to give.

Christmas Celebrations in the Chin Hills

SAM_0140The team from Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Myanmar helped us deliver 600 Christmas gifts to all the children and all the teachers. We received a total of USD 4424 for this project and that was more than what we needed to give presents to all the children. In addition to the gifts we have also helped supporting a summer camp for children living in children homes in Yangon.

Expenses:
Christmas Gifts – 57%, Summer Camp – 17%, Transportation – 16%, Office and Administration – 10%

Christmas Project ’12

It is Christmas time again and we are preparing our yearly Christmas presents for the children and teachers in all our rural schools. 535 students in 12 villages are hoping that there will be Christmas presents this year as well. We will cooperate with the local Youth With A Mission school to deliver the presents to the children. We are not sure exactly what will be included in the present yet, but it will be a combination of something useful, and something not so useful. We will come with more information when we know more. One gift will cost 8 USD (6 for the present and 2 for the team bringing the gifts all the way.)
