Support Program for Vulnerable Women - ongoing

In downtown Mandalay the Good Shepherd Sisters started a drop-in and healing center for young women living in difficult circumstances – single mothers, school drop-outs, victims of Cyclone Nargis, streetwalkers, and girls facing abuse or living in fear of trafficking. This center will become an integral part of the Empowerment Center for Women and Children.

Don Bosco Youth Center (DBYC), Mandalay - ongoing

Street Boys at the Drop-In Center

At the DBYC, the Catholic Salesian Brothers care for vulnerable youth and street children who have dropped out of school or live on the streets to escape dysfunctional families and abuse. Eighteen boys at risk stay at the Center and receive informal school education and moral guidance and attend vocational training courses. The vocational training courses include electric and electronics repair, computer and language training, and motor bike repair.

Grace Haven Orphanage, Pyin Oo Lwin - ongoing

In 1998, a Lisu priest and her English husband built the Grace Haven Orphanage in Pyin Oo Lwin for children who are orphaned, from poor families, and from single parent families. Today, 80 boys and girls, both Christians and non-Christians, live at the Orphanage.
