Two Parrots Monastery School
Kyet Tuu Ywel (Two Parrots) is a small, remote village in the northeastern part of the Karen State in Myanmar. There, the Head Monk at the local monastery (an intensely dedicated fellow called U Sanda Ba Tha) runs a primary and secondary school for 175 students. As you might imagine, funding a school in this relatively poor section of Myanmar is a perennial problem.
With funding from our Foundation the Monk is constructing a system to provide running water to the more than 400 homes in this village.

This will be a huge benefit to the people there – especially during the four months of dry season when their wells are dry. Community leaders are confident the residents will happily pay the equivalent of $2.50 per month for that blessing of running water available year round. The resulting revenue will go a long way towards keeping the Two Parrots School operational and sustainable.
