About the project 


The “Bamboo Delight Summer Youth Camp 2022” project is one of the projects of Hand to Hand Charity Myanmar in this year, 2022.

Statement of Problem and Target Groups 


Due to the current political situations and the Covid-19 pandemic, schools are closed and some students do not go to the government schools. Some youths in Nyaung Shwe get married, drugged and forced to work in their teen ages. To prevent these issues and help the youths develop their intelligence and wisdom, the “Summer Youth Camp” project is intended to be provided for them. 


The project targets the two age target groups; 10-12 and 13-18 from Nyaung Shwe and the total number will be around 80 students. 10-12 age group will receive all the courses except skills training and social science subjects only on weekends while 13-18 youths will obtain all the courses which will be conducted in a language that is easily understandable and suitable to their level of understanding, on weekdays. The camp runs from March to May for 3 months with occasional trips and extra-curricular activities. 


The international volunteers will be invited to share their knowledge and skills and help the children practice their English in English sessions and also in skills trainings and social science subjects while local experts and figures are most welcome to take sessions for the children in selected subjects determined by the project. In general, local volunteers will lead the English and General Music courses and at the same time, assist in the whole project management.
