Welcome to our website

We are a non-profit association and in Myanmar (Burma), one of the poorest countries in the world, we are engaged in raising the standard of education of children and young people. Here are our guidelines to enable people to rely on their own abilities and help themselves and Learning by Doing. In our opinion helping does not mean giving presents. Helping the people in Myanmar can only be effective if it gives them a chance to organize for themselves a life without hunger and need. Read more

  • Return to school at Phaung Daw Oo Monastic High School ( PDO )

    Öffentlichkeitsarbeit | PDOTS | Verein Help Myanmar e.V. | 03.07.2020

    The somewhat relaxed lockdown in Myanmar still applies. Nothing has changed in the travel warnings of the Foreign Office: Foreign visitors (especially tourists) are still not allowed to travel to Myanmar. This of course also makes it impossible to send specialists in cooperation with the Senior Expert Service (SES). When this will be possible again, we do not know.

  • Family Wolff: Visiting our sponsored students in Mingun

    Patenschaften| Reisebericht | Besuche Help Myanmar e.V. | 18.06.2020

    Dies ist eine (etwas nostalgische) Botschaft aus der verlorenen Normalität. Familie Wolff aus München hat uns einen neuen Bericht von ihrem letzten Besuch in Mingun geschickt. Na ja, so ganz neu ist er nicht mehr. Aber an Aktualität hat er nichts eingebüßt. Nur sind Besuchssituationen wie sie in dem Bericht geschildert werden zur Zeit schlicht unmöglich: Auch Myanmar leidet unter Covid-19. Wir zitieren aus den Reisewarnungen des Auswärtigen Amtes. „Die Ausbreitung der Atemwegserkrankung COVID-19 führt auch in Myanmar zu Einreisesperren …

    In our TAP project, which will soon be coming to an end, some participants are still in their internships. They will continue to receive assignments online; for example, they have to create programs for a day trip to Mandalay, for a 3-city tour in one day, or for round trips through Myanmar. There are no more regular classes. A small group participated in the “Trash Collection Activities” at U-Bain Bridge, organized by the “Clear Mandalay Campaign” in the first week of March.

    Information About the Impact of COVID-19 on the Families of our Godchildren For a long time no COVID-19 cases were reported from Myanmar. But meanwhile COVID-19 has reached the country also officially. The government had started already several weeks back with precautionary measures. All universities and education institutes were closed. Schools were not directly impacted since anyhow the 3-months holidays have started beginning of March. All official Thingyan events were cancelled. Cinemas and theatres are closed since few weeks, as well as factories. Since there is no protection for employees in Myanmar, this means that all workers do not have any income. This affects also the families of many godchildren.…
