‘Myanmar go local’ is a small organization that helps local people in Burma
We want to help the village, but we cannot do it on our own.
On the Bay of Bengal, on the west coast of Burma, just one hour by boat from Ngapali Beach lies, beautifully situated between two pagodas, the lovely village of Thamia. The villagers live from fishing and growing rice, peanuts and cashew nuts. There is neither electricity nor running water. After primary school, further education is currently impossible due to lack of transportation. Some children don’t go to school at all because the family can’t afford it. Most people never visit a doctor, as the cost of medical assistance is simply too high.
We want to help the village, but we cannot do it on our own. We have already started a small English class. Have handed out clothes, (reading) glasses, medicine and money for fishing nets, seeds and money for school. But people need more like clean drinking water, medical help, school money and money for building toilets and repairing their simple homes.
