This is shelter for orphanage run by an Abbot (Monk), approximately 30 km Southwest from Yangon. The center was established in 1999 and is run as a school. There are about 1,150 children; 800 of who are at Primary School level (below grade 8) and rest of them are high school level.

It is an orphanage where over 1,000 orphans from all over Myanmar live and study. There are several grown-up orphans who still live in the shelter and study in colleges and universities in Yangon. These orphans are from all over Myanmar who do not have their parents or whose parents are either unknown or very poor. This shelter has also got approval for formal education and use government curriculum but there are only 14 permanent and 14 temporary teachers for over thousand children to provide education. They are never enough. Mostly vocational training programs are offered hoping that these children learn technical subjects and even develop some occupational skill. Some of them either get jobs or may even open their own business afterwards.

As Myanmar has recently opened up for foreigners and number of tourists is surging, doubling each year, English language skill has been a very helpful for these kids as they can serve as tour guide or even work for foreign companies paying good salaries. There are 2-3 English teachers but never enough. Kids are eager to learn English. In addition, other languages such as French, Chinese, Japanese etc. language skill training could also be useful for these kids. Depending upon the skill and interests, volunteers can teach other languages and sports and other occupational trainings such as sewing, singing, music, arts and so on.
