Working together to provide educational opportunities for very poor children in Myanmar (Burma)

S4SK is a UK-registered charity, No: 1131559

Further Education

As well as providing basic education to children from very poor backgrounds, we also aim to help them acquire the skills that will enable them to have careers that match their abilities.  We keep track of the children we help and aim to provide successive interventions, each building on the last, until the young person is independent.  As described in the page on non-formal education, we include a sizable component on handicraft skills.  This is to give the child the confidence that they can learn new skills later on. In support of this, we arrange or sponsor courses in various handicraft skills for our teachers.

We provide scholarships to enable young people to follow vocational training courses including health-care, pharmacy, mechanical engineering, graphic design, photography, desktop publishing and many more.  In addition we run our own sewing and tailoring courses, by the end of which our students are able to make shirts, blouses, school uniforms and many more kinds of clothes.

  For young people with academic ability, we offer some scholarships in higher education towards at local universities and colleges.  Subjects studied have included Law, Music, Engineering, Accountancy and Nursing.
