Teacher Aye Aye’s Dream: Education for All in Myanmar

September 17, 2014

Teacher Aye Aye, who is from Myanmar, believes that school is a special place--it's where students discover their talents and pick up skills that they can use in their future jobs. That's why she worries whenever students drop out. Education is cherished in her community but poorer families cannot afford school fees. Thanks to a program supported by Australia and the World Bank that provides school grants and stipends, more students in Myanmar are now attending school.
