Stand by Me builds a secure children’s village in Shan StateNews

Shan State is an area in the west of Burma troubled by war, conflict, persecution, poverty and the trafficking of children. The rigid control of resources by armed forces has resulted in the majority of the population living in extreme poverty and many children have been left orphaned or living without adequate care.

This was the motivation for Stand by Me to adopt two children’s homes in Shan State bringing care, an education and love to children in crisis. The aim is to begin to build a new Shan State Children’s Village to provide the best environment for children to grow up healthily and with dignity. 

It will comprise of three or four family homes for approximately 50 children, modelled on the Kalaymyo Children’s Village. For further information, check out their website – https://www.standby.me/news/family-homes/building-a-secure-children-s-village-in-shan-state
