Weʼre raising £500 to share teaching resources in rural areas in Myanmar to help improve education and creativity for children.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Want to share the joy of colourful stories?!!
Books are not easy to get in this country and government allowance for each student in each school is so low, like 8p per student per year, it's almost unbelievable.
If you would also like to make a contribution to help improve education in Myanmar - donate to Books for Burma and we will distribute books and resources on your behalf. Give to someone who needs it.
We regularly bring back books from the UK for schools, teachers and students here in Myanmar. Sometimes, text books, story books, novels, kids books, newspapers in English, games and teaching books.
You will receive the information about your donation. We will show you where and how your money has been spent! You'll make some teachers and student very happy!
Sometimes I donate a nice box of kids books produced by Third Story Books projects. Written in a range of languages. https://www.facebook.com/thirdstorychildrenbooks/?ref=br_rs
There is also a nice small organisation called Books not Bombs and if you request, I will donate the money to them. They also donate books around Myanmar to village schools. https://www.facebook.com/bnbmyanmar/

About the fundraiser
I have lived in Myanmar for 4 years. I was a teacher trainer for 2 years & really saw the education system up-close. I also visited some primary schools in villages in rural areas. They have NO resources - no books, no toys, no games, no library, no printer. We can provide some!
