All About Bamboo Delight Summer Youth Camp 2022 Program

Bamboo Delight Summer Youth Camp 2022 Bamboo Delight Summer Youth Camp 2022 aims at young people between the ages of 13 and 20 in Nyaung Shwe, Shan State. It includes English proficiency courses, General Music Classes, Introduction to Social Science Subjects and 21st Century Skill Trainings to help children develop their educational, mental and intellectual abilities. It also shares social values and knowledge for young people by sharing basic moral values and life experiences that inspire children. After the Covid-19 hit in 2020 , schools closed down.

She decided to open her house and teach the local children during their summer school break. At that time, she had only one small group with 10 students from her village.
