Sin Kyun Village
AKP Project Since 2014
AKP brings education, clean water and hope to a small remote village in the Irrawaddy River
Located just north of Mandalay on the banks of the Irrwaddy River, Sin Kyun is a small remote community that specializes in peanut farming and hat making.
Working with the village Chief, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy and our guests, have built much-needed community facilities including a living quarters for teachers and a middle school, as well as providing emergency assistance during severe flooding. The Sanctuary Ananda guides have also run a Summer English Camp for the students of the school.
