MEP Christmas Appeal 2022
HELP PLUG THE GAP ON THE MON PROJECT
On the 1st of February 2021, Myanmar was thrust into a humanitarian crisis when the military junta seized power over the government in a coup d'etat.
Since then, thousands of teachers have been dismissed and the learning of almost 12 million children and young people in Myanmar has been significantly disrupted (UNICEF 2022). In short, there is an increasingly desperate need for quality education across the country.
MEP has a reputation of implementing projects in challenging areas, including Mon state, located on the western coast of south-east Myanmar. The majority of this region is currently under military control, and as a result is experiencing escalating unrest.
Our partnership with the Monastic education network is helping to raise education standards in some of the poorest communities in Mon state, working with both teachers and students who have been victims of ongoing conflict and civil war. Given the difficult circumstances, we are having to adapt our current programme to reflect the conditions on the ground. However, in the meantime we must maintain our presence in Mon, allowing our team of trainers to continue providing vital educational services.
Help us plug the gap on the Mon project, allowing us to keep our team in Mon state and at the same time redesign our current programme.

WHAT ARE OUR CURRENT PROJECTS?
A NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN iPac AND MEP
We are delighted to announce that iPac and Mobile Education Partnerships (MEP) have launched a new partnership aimed at raising awareness of and funds for MEP’s work with refugee, displaced and migrant teachers and children from Myanmar.
TEACHER TRAINING WITH MEP
Find out more about how MEP works. We have developed a unique and innovative model of teacher training. Our mobile units work with local refugee and migrant teachers and children at grassroots level forming meaningful partnerships with local teachers and impacting the learning of thousands of children every year.
Building on many years’ experience of working in difficult conditions MEP has created an innovative and effective system of training which is sensitive to differing perceptions of education and cultural and social norms.
We hope that what we do has a human face. I am very proud of the work of our teams and am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of our work.
