This mission supports the Salesian priests and sisters at their 3 centres in rural Anisakan village and Pyin Oo Lwin township, both two hours from Mandalay. Some 250 teenage boys and girls from poor backgrounds board and are cared for at these centres, receiving education, vocational training and character formation. The sisters also run kindergartens at 2 centres, reaching out to about 300 poor village children.
During our mission, we need doctors and triage support, people who can teach basic English to young people, anyone who enjoys engaging kindergarten/elementary school children and teens in learning and activities, those with interests in faith formation, baking/cooking, sewing, and basic painting/maintenance works.
The estimated cost per participant is SGD 900 to 1,200 (depending on airline choice), and includes airfare, accommodation, mission fees (covering meals, water & land transport) but excludes personal expenses. Age limit for participants is 15 to 70.
