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

  • Rice donation for Mingun

    Allgemein Help Myanmar e.V. | 27.09.2020

    After the first rice donation campaign in Mandalay via Moe Moe’s house, there has now also been a distribution in Mingun to poor families.

All stalls with souvenirs, clothes and food have been dismantled, the schools and kindergarten

  • Encouragement: “Fan mail” from Barcelona

    Öffentlichkeitsarbeit | Verein Help Myanmar e.V. | 23.07.2020

    That is badly needed in Corona times. This postcard reached us from an unknown “fan” who recently stayed in Barcelona. He just finished his Master of Science ( MSc ) in North Rhine-Westphalia. We see it as an encouragement to continue with our work, especially in Corona times and despite our harsh criticism of the Rohinga policy of the current government. Only education and education for critical thinking broadens horizons, so that at some point one can discuss these aberrations …
