About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are Theik Khar Myanmar Institute in Taunggyi, Shan State, Myanmar. We run a 15-month Arts & Social Sciences Alternative College Program. We have 30 students each year from all across Myanmar comprising of 3-4 religious groups & 15-18 ethnic groups. Our students learn to use the arts to portray about social issues while increasing their knowledge of the world. We have recently acquired an 8-acre land in the countryside where we should be moving the school upon the end of construction (planned opening May 2019). Visit our Facebook page to learn more about the work we do.
