Ata is home to 500 families with approximately 400 school-aged children. Due to the lack of school buildings, many of them had to learn outdoors, exposed to the wind and weather.
With the construction of the new school building, the children have a safe learning environment.
The school now provides an education to 150 children from kindergarten through the first four school years, and is part of the Branch High School in Ata, Kyauk Padaung Township. Stiftunglife, a non-profit organization that supports access to education for children in rural areas of the country, collaborated on the project.
The new school is part of Stiftunglife’s long-term-efforts for the community development in Myanmar. Due to the successful cooperation, the Acronis Foundation plans to support the organization’s school building projects in the future.
