Aung Myae Oo monastic school

We visited this monastic school today, very interesting indeed. With 2800 students and 73 staff it’s a big place. Tuition is free and the kids are either orphans or from poor families. We brought books, pens and pencils as our donation. A group of kids sang songs for us with great gusto, including one song in English. A wonderful experience.
What a great thing to do ... a very colourful group...

@julzmaioro @robz @hermann @onewing @salza Apologies for group reply, typing on iPhone is tedious. Thanks to each and all of you. I agree it is a very worthwhile project, and only half-funded by the government so all donations are very welcome. The teachers there don’t get the full ‘award’ wage but love working there. A lot of them were educated at that school. The kids are colorful because most of them are wearing monk’s/nun’s robes, even some tiny ones. But they are free to choose their path in life any time, some stay monks/nuns, some don’t.

@taffy You’re right, it was.

@taffy We got to visit because Travelmarvel/APT is a sponsor of the school.

So much to absorb here, visually, culturally, and experientially.

@jyokota Absolutely correct, the whole experience made me stop and think about some important things.

@golftragic sometimes I feel like I need more time to absorb experiences, understand them more deeply through research and reading. but at least processing the photograph gives me space to ponder what the experience means to me.

You’re quite right about further reflection. I have more shots on my camera which I’ll deal with at home. Processing on the iPhone is pretty rudimentary.
