Large donation at the end of the year 2020

This was before the Covid-19 lockdown: The last successful graduating class of the TAP = Tourism Assistant Project. We hope to be able to start again in 2021 – if the lockdown is relaxed – albeit with a smaller group.

ROBECO Switzerland Ltd, the Swiss branch of the asset management firm ROBECO, has donated 14.960 Swiss Francs to Foerderverein Myanmar. 10.00 Francs from the firm itself instead of Christmas gifts for customers and further 4.960 Francs from the staff who forewent gratifications for this purpose. With this donation, we can finance two of our most important training projects, TAP (Tourism Assistant Project) and TEAMS (Teaching English At Monastic Schools) for a whole year.
Many thanks to ROBECO Switzerland and its staff

TEAMS (Teaching English At Monastic Schools) trains young teachers for their tasks “out in the country” in the computer lab managed by TEAMS.
