Decades of armed conflict, military dictatorship and economic hardship have driven Burma’s health and education services into the ground.

Struggling against successive military regimes in Burma, ethnic communities worked together to give their people education services that the Burma government failed to deliver.

As part of its education program Mobile Teacher Trainers (MTT) trek deep into conflict affected areas to provide critical frontline education services to communities.

Several ethnic groups including Karen, Kayan, Kayah, Karenni, Mon, Shan, Kachin, Naga, Wa, Zomi, Lahu, Pa’ O and Ta’ang, shared the MTT’s model aims to educate Burma’s future generations and provide hope to the people.

Following Burma’s tentative steps towards democratic the opport-unity to combine what has become two separate education systems– one for ethnic people and one controlled by the central Burmese government – is now possible. However, concerns over language and cultural identity have to be resolved if the education system
is to become one.
