Over 700 students and monk scholars have been studying at the Sasana Hita Kari Pri Yatti Manastic Education Center, which is entirely dependent on contributions from private donors and former students who have been successful in their careers.
The school buildings are in dire need of renovation. Not only is this essential from a safety point of view, but also vital in providing a positive learning environment for students, who are mostly orphans and street children.
Through a series of fundraising events, Traders Hotel, Yangon has raised funds to finish construction of the children’s education facility, a health clinic and a library.
Work Experience opportunities
Students who have graduated from the school have undergone an intensive training programme with the hotel’s management staff and six students have been employed by the hotel’s housekeeping team. Some future graduates are currently going through recruitment processes for possible employment in the Middle East.
Completion of the School’s First Library
By the end of October 2012, the school’s first-ever library was completed. Follow-up plans are being laid out to incorporate proper training sessions for future librarians and collection drives for books, self-study materials and language learning facilities are also underway.
The English Communications Consultant for Traders Hotel, Yangon conducts English language classes for teachers who are volunteering at the Monastic Education Center. These classes are scheduled for a period of six months and the current course will run till the end of February 2013.
The hotel has an F&B Customer Loyalty Membership card programme called Gourmet Entertainment Members Club (GEMs), where a portion of the cards sold support the EMBRACE project. Over 200 cards have been sold to date.
