Khyaketwine monastery school - Bago (Burma)
Description: Lost in the middle of a palm tree forest between Yangon and Bago, the Khyaketwine monastery is little more than a rudimentary collection of humid planks and corrugated iron. Of the prayer room, blown away by the Nargis cyclone, only remains a rank of Buddhas battered by the monsoon rains. However, Khyaketwine remains very active, and teaches hundreds of orphans and children from poor families, from every ethnicity and every religion. Classes of Burmese, English, Spanish, Maths are offered every day. Even computer classes are available once a week, thanks to the three computers the monks bought a few years ago.
