Program Introduction Video


“The predictatorship cohort of teachers at secondary and higher educational institutions is now long retired.  The missing years of higher education reached its nadir after the ‘88 revolt with the periodic, and eventually the complete, closing of major undergraduate institutions.  Throughout, the dominant mode of education was rote learning.  The Myanmar Foundation for Analytical Education, Inc. is the major funder of a Pre-Collegiate Program in Yangon.  This Program seeks to nurture a small cohort of change makers, youth who will become perceptive, empathetic, critical, capable, and proactive in engaging the society around them.  After sixteen months of academic work and internships in NGOs these students will gain admission and financing at leading liberal arts colleges abroad.  After graduation they will either return home immediately or pursue graduate degrees relevant to the development of Myanmar.”
