MUDITA ASSOCIATION HAS BUILT A LARGE
SELF-SUFFICIENT ECO-COMPLEX FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEDGED CHILDREN IN MYANMAR!
In the beginning of 2018, we launched a new project at Htet Ean Gu Monastic Education School, located near the scenic Inle Lake. We acquired 12.5 acres of land and immediately started working. Our aim was to create a modern and sustainable education centre for the education of underprivileged and orphaned children in Myanmar.
During the first year of our project, we established a self-sufficient complex for more than 200 children, and called it Mudita School. This success was thanks to our ever-growing community of international volunteers and donors. We’ll continiue developing and expanding Mudita School throughout this year and also in year 2010.
While we provide modern education to underpriviledged children, we also use local materials and workforce and help create more jobs and income for the villagers. Mudita School is a pilot project and we hopefully to be a role model in the fields of education, health and ecology.
In Mudita School we have set up a new curriculum based on modern teaching pedagogy. Children start with Waldorf inspired kindergarten, followed by computer and English classes. Our arts and music classes boost the creativity of our children, while sports, handicraft and eco-farming let them understand nature and develop skills that will be crucial in later stages.
We understand that complete health and well-being is best achieved through a holistic approach of body, mind and soul. In our clinic we look after the children’s physical well-being. In our civil education program the kids learn about hygiene, foods and healthy living. Yoga and mindfulness classes round up our health program, which not only produces healthy kids but also create lots of joy and happiness in their lives.
The nature-bound, holistic approach is also applied to our external living conditions.Our eco-buildings are built only using local resources like clay and bamboo and are based on traditional building methods. In our eco-farm the children learn to understand and respect their environment in order to live a sustainable life in harmony with nature.
