Myanmar Staff and Volunteers


MCF has collaborated with the following individuals and organizations in carrying out its mission in Myanmar:

 

Our Country Director, Ko Thura Aung

has been involved with MCF from its inception in 2007.  He worked closely with Founder Max Harrington to establish relationships with rural monastic schools that were in need, conduct needs assessments, plan, supervise and oversee multiple school building construction projects, as well as manage the Stay in School program. Ko Aung has multiple skills and traits that suit the goals of MCF in providing universal primary education in Myanmar.  We are enormously proud of him and grateful to him!

 

Child’s Dream Foundation

a charitable, not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering marginalized children and youth in the Mekong Sub-Region, which includes Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. Child’s Dream funded the cost of construction for building number one at Shan Chaung Monastic School and worked in partnership with our Country Director to oversee construction.
