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.

VANUATU EMERGENCY RELIEF / CYCLONE PAM

A major relief effort in Vanuatu after the devastation of Cyclone Pam is already underway, we are calling on all HEROES to support the efforts of locals to help those in desperate need.pangobeahero1.jpg

News from the ground in Vanuatu...

Like many other villages, Pango Village, just outside Port Vila, was devastatingly hit when Cyclone Pam crossed from the east to the west side of Vanuatu on Friday 13 March.

Initial reports and photographs show that the community has been severely affected with many roofs and shacks destroyed, trees uprooted, subsistence gardens lost, jobs in jeopardy and lives in ruins.

van.pngEven the loss of tourism over the next several weeks will hit almost every family badly.

Over the past 10 years our friends at Cleveland High School have built a relationship with Pango Village, with groups of staff and students undertaking ambitious projects in the local schools and kindergartens.

Staff and students from their Sister School, Pango Centre School, have travelled to Cleveland for personal development and expanded education.

People urgently need shelter, clean water, food and sanitation and as we find out more information we will alert you to specific needs like housing and infrastructure rebuilding.

While it is exciting to build relationships in good time, the test of these relationships comes in times of need.

We are appealing to all school families as well as the wider Be A HERO community, to reach out with a tax deductible donation to help to help rebuild the schools, kindergartens, village infrastructure and homes of those worst affected, as well as to provide emergency aid where needed.

All money raised will go to the relief effort in Pango Village and beyond if possible.

If you want to help, donations can be made to Be A HERO Australia on the link below or bank transfer.donate

Westpac Bank - Be A HERO Australia

BSB : 034 070  ACC : 308 700

Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

The project is being managed and monitored by Global Development Group with Be A HERO Australia.

Together, we can do amazing things, come on HEROES!
