Here’s how the launch of MEC was covered in the Myanmar Times, as well as on the websites of our donors.
The Australian and British government aid bodies last week unveiled a new, multi-million dollar program aimed at educating Myanmar’s poorest children, as part of a larger US$500-million commitment over five years.

The UK will work with Australia to help over 200,000 children in Burma to complete basic education. The MEC will work alongside Burma’s formal education system to reach children not in the government system. This will include an emergency component to support children whose education has been disrupted by violence such as the ongoing conflicts in Rakine and Kachin states.
