Khyaketwine monastery school - Bago (Burma)
Description: San San Yi is a volunteer at Khyaketwine. Under a poster of the Arsenal soccer team, she explains how it all started:

?I founded this school a few years ago with some friends. Most of the children here are sent to us by underfunded public school that do not have the means to take care of them. Many of them have never learned anything substantial yet. Some 10 year olds do not even know their alphabet. Their parents probably could not afford the private tutoring classes that you need in Burma to be able to follow in class.

Khyaketwine was officially recognized by the Ministry of Education last summer. Thanks to that, we?ve been eligible for teacher training, and I enrolled in a workshop organized by the Japanese government. I learned there how to use new teaching methods, how to force students to interact with me rather than relying on repetition. Even the little ones still require a lot of guidance and support, the older ones now start to enjoy self-learning. When they master some vocabulary on their own, it makes them so proud and eager to learn more !?
