Clothe-A-Child

The Clothe-A-Child donation drive was started with the intention of providing clothing for the people of Shwe Pyi Thar. Over the course of our yearly preparations, we reach out to schoolmates, family members and the public to request both new and old clothes. The clothes are then sorted, packed and flown over to Myanmar for distribution. Each year, about three hundred kilograms of donations are collected and given to more than a hundred households in the village. We personally give the donations to each of the villagers, imbuing the initiative with a personal touch, following the values of our project: Love, Live, Learn. This allows us to be more connected to the village that we are serving and to experience, first hand, the fruits of our labour as we witness the joy these donations can bring to the villagers. We believe that this simple gesture allows us to express our gratitude for the invaluable lessons which we glean even as we serve the village.
