The poorest of the poor in Yangon are living in the wettest parts of the city with "housing"  built on stagnant slimey water.  The families don't have enough money to send their children to school, so this project is designed to bring the school to them.

Small bamboo and tin "community centres" are built in the community to be used as a school for the village children to be able to receive basic numeracy and literacy skills, allowing them to be able to go on to a government school if their family can afford it, or at least giving them these basic skills required for employment and life in general.
