THE Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), through its World Friend Korea volunteers’ program, has announced its support for a new project involving voluntary activity in Win Ka Yin village, Bago Township with the goal of improving the living conditions of village residents.
KOICA WFK-Volunteer Ms. Shin Yong Jin, dispatched to the Early Childhood Care & Development Resource Centre under the Wash & School rehabilitation voluntary activity programme, arrived at Win Ka Yin primary school in Bago on Friday. The project budget is set at US$1,689. The launching ceremony was successfully held in the presence of Mr. Moon Sang Won, Senior Deputy Representative of the KOICA Office in Myanmar, KOICA WFK-Volunteers and other related representatives including teachers, officials and esteemed members of the community. Win Ka Yin village is a remote area that receives limited support from the government making the ideal village for the programme to begin operating in. The programme aims to improve the health knowledge and conditions of local residents by providing medical check-up services, sustainable water purifiers and solar panels for electricity generation. Also at the Win Ka Yin primary school, in order to strengthen the capacity of teachers and enhance children’s creativity, KOICA is carrying out various activities such as painting, introducing the children to animation and playing field day games.
KOICA, through its World Friends Korea volunteers program has been supporting a number of projects to facilitate the access and activities of the volunteers, enhance the capacity building of host organisations and improve the quality of life of people in the local community. Currently there are around 100 World Friends Korea volunteers serving in Myanmar.—GNLM
