Waiting List only!
Our mission supports the Salesian priests and sisters at their 3 centres in rural Anisakan village and Pyin Oo Lwin township, both two hours from Mandalay. Some 250 teenage boys and girls from poor and at-risk backgrounds board and are cared for at these centres, receiving education, vocational training and character formation. The sisters have also just begun lower primary school classes for 150 poor village children, while also running kindergarten classes for 300 children, most of whom will not go to school without the sisters’ presence. The Salesian priests and sisters also provide pastoral care to impoverished families in the villages.
During our mission, we need doctors and triage support, people who can teach English and general knowledge to young people, anyone who enjoys engaging kindergarten/primary school children and teens in learning and activities, those with interests in faith formation, baking/cooking, sewing, and basic painting/maintenance works.
The estimated cost per participant is SGD 900 to 1,100 (depending on airline choice), and includes airfare, accommodation, mission fees (covering meals, water & land transport) but excludes personal expenses. Age limit for participants is 15 to 70.
