AEA Cambodia ILEAD Community Center Facility Enhancement & Temple School Construction

Students were taking the lessons in the temple as their temporary classroom. During our community field trip in October 2017, we identified the local engineering needs on school campus with AEA Cambodia.

A new school will be constructed as a permanent classroom for local students, and new fence and gate will be built in iLEAD Community Center within Krangyow Commune, Kandal Province. EWB-HK is providing schematic and detailed engineering design, advice on construction material, progress monitoring and site inspections.

Yangon Hmawbi Children Development Center Facility Enhancement

Hmawbi is a remote township, at the north of Yangon Region in Myanmar. Despite of the prosperity in major cities, many citizens are still suffering from the natural disasters and internal conflicts in the rural area. Full Moon Children Development Center dedicates to serve the children whose basic livings are unsecured.  More than 300 children entirely rely on the food, accommodation and personal development services provided by the Centre.  The lack of resources and maintenance of facilities in the Center directly limit the learning and growth of the children.

As parts of their livelihood, children have their meal in a hot and stuffy dining room with countless flies flying around and share the same cup in drinking the untreated groundwater. In addition, frequent blackout lasting up to days poses a great threat on the groundwater pumping, lighting and venting services in the Center.  It is undoubtedly hard for the children to live in the poverty and worries.  Yet, is it hard to change the situation?  After investigation to the Center in mid June 2018, EWB-HK cared the improvement to living quality of the people with engineering technics from our volunteers and identified the key factors to improve the local livelihood and cultivating a better environment for the children.

Tachileik is a city of Myanmar Shan State near Thailand and Myanmar border at the north of Chiang Rai City. It is located near the Golden Triangle. Opium, gambling, jade sale and migrant workers crossing the border are one of the daily lives. People there has their special stories. Many kids were not taken care because of poor habit, living situation and migration life on their parents.

A children center is brave to take care them on their efforts with food, accommodation and education such that the kids can grow in love and care. Besides living, kids also need to farm everyday for their food. On recent years, houses of this children center premises are very dilapidated due to flooding after higher site formation on neigbhourhood and poor drainage system. The food on the farm and storage room, and also structures of dormitory and classroom deteriorates during flooding.

Yangon Urban Slum Community Development

Slums and informal settlements continue to proliferate across Myanmar, even in Yangon city. Located in the western part of Yangon, Myanmar, Hlaing Tharyar Township is one of the biggest and also the most populated township in Yangon city.

To look for better lives and escape from rural poverty, people move to the Myanmar industrial zone for employment opportunity every year and many of them end up in Hlaing Tharyar’s slums. However, the living conditions there are poor. Basic sanitation infrastructure/ facilities including basic drainage, waste disposal facilities, electricity and clean water supply are almost non existent while cramped houses, sewage water stagnates in open surface drains, narrow lanes, and heaps of garbage are commonplace.

After our on-site investigation in June 2018, EWB-HK is exploring practicable projects to contribute to community developments in the Hlaing Tharyar’s slums.
