Fundraising

Our volunteers have always been engaged in fundraising for the partner NGOs, migrant schools and local trainers that support the programs. This year, volunteers are requested to raise HKD 1,000 per person.

The donation will go to

  • Science and ¬†Technology Training Centre, Mae Sot (renovation project costs);
  • BHSOH, Mae Sot (to fund a school bus for students living far away from school); and
  • Mon Intensive English Program, Mawlamyine (to install a WiFi network in the school).

No administration fee will be charged.

We encourage volunteers to explore different ways to raise funds, whether individually or as a group, with a view to raising awareness about the issues related to Myanmar. We are happy to provide advice upon request.

Transport and Accommodation

We will provide travel advice at a pre-departure briefing session. Volunteers will generally make their own arrangement for transportation and accommodation, either in group or individually.

Expenses and Subsidies

All volunteers are required to pay HKD 1,000 as a deposit upon acceptance of the placement.  The deposit shall be refundable upon satisfactory completion of the program, including all training sessions and the pre-departure briefing, and the submission of a short reflective essay.
