BACKGROUND:

"At 10 years, Kyaw is an exceptional student, considered the pride of his Teachers.  In order to support Kyaw and his disabled sibling, his Mother is occasionally able to find work doing laundry in the neighborhood.  She is grateful to "Not Another Child" because she is now able to provide Kyaw with three nutritious meals a day.  NAC support also ensures that school fees are paid and Kyaw may continue his education.  As a promising 5th grader, Kyaw dreams of the day when he will hold a professional job and will be able to support his Mother and his Brother."

August: Received glowing update following Elizabeth's visit to Central Burma that Kyaw is excelling in school (with photographs on file to prove it!) In Elizabeth's words, "KZL stopped by to say 'Mingalaba.' He looked GREAT! A little taller and so cute with his tanaka neatly applied and he was so clean and neat! He was not wearing his school uniform since it is a holiday, but he had on cargo pants and a nice shirt...He had his backpack and he was coming from his tuition classes. I only review his English notebook, but it was beautifully written with all the exercises 100%. One of the main themes was the story of Cinderella...a few paragraphs of the story, followed by questions and answers. I orally asked him some of the questions and he answered perfectly in complete "memorized" sentences. Tonight his Mom will come by and we will have her sign a new agreement.  Since classes began anew last month, we will give her the June and July payment. We changed the $600 at $1.=882 kyats, since the rate is better there. So, the monthly payments will be 44,100kyats...I am certain that the money will be appropriately spent on KZL's needs and {that others on the ground} will be responsible administrators. They are all VERY grateful."

May 2013:  KZL is doing well and studying hard in school.  He is described as being a "good boy" and a "good student."

September 15 - KZL, NAC's First Child, has been on the program  for 30 months now.  Working out the logistics relating to extending his support until he reaches age 14. In continued dialogue with his volunteer AZM who currently is out of the country, but will return to Myanmar in October.

November 13 - Received excellent progress report from AZM re KZL schooling and overall welfare. AZM has visited and sent several photographs, which will be posted in the Children/On The Ground section. Support will be sent via Elizabeth who will visit in January 2014 so KZL can continue to thrive.

February 2014:  KZL is now a well dressed, handsome, sturdy 13 year old. He arrived with his Shan bag full of notebooks to meet Trusted Individual On the Ground (Volunteer) Elizabeth.  He reported that he is finishing 7th Standard. On February 28th exams begin, followed by the school holiday. He will begin the 8th Standard the first week of June.   His notebooks were meticulously kept and appeared to have been checked by his Teachers, given the red check marks.  Trusted Individual On the Ground (Volunteer) AZM grilled him on his History and Science and Elizabeth asked him questions about his English practice. He continues to be a very dedicated student and aspires to be a Civil Engineer.   On another good note, his single mother Ma Cho Cho has recently begun working full time in a "shopping center." (department store?) in Central Myanmar.  His 16-year old special needs Brother also has some "work" and contributes to the family income.  Elizabeth and AZM agreed that NAC came to the rescue of this fine student just when his Family was truly in financial need. They are now able to support themselves and KZL will be able to continue his studies to fulfill his dreams and be able to provide for his family in the future.

BOTTOM LINE:  NAC's First Child Kyaw has GRADUATED from the program and we are confident he will make a fine citizen of Myanmar!
