AKP brings education, clean water and hope to a small island village in the Irrawaddy River

Overview

Sin Kyun Village is a remote island of 1,000 inhabitants, located just north of Mandalay in the middle of the Irrawaddy River. Its people specialize in peanut farming and hat-making, and the island uses an electric generator that runs just three hours in the evenings. All houses use well water. When the chief requested help for a library, it was the beginning of a partnership between the village leadership and AKP to improve the quality of life, focusing particularly on education.

AKP’s support now includes new classroom construction and a small house for teachers.
