Computer for Orphans

The Mary K. Yap Foundation offers the “Basic Computer for You” program as one of the Foundation’s ongoing efforts under the “Educational Advancement” commitment which is part of the #Road2Digital2025 Donate to Impact campaign to bring basic computer skills to our young orphan children.  The Foundation commits to giving financial assistance to highly inspired orphaned children to have basic knowledge of computer applications and learn their technological advantages.

The program aims to offer the best possible experience in class, with hands-on lessons for selected orphans to apply, incorporate, and use Technology to aid their learning and increase their productivity.

The intentions of the Mary K. Yap Foundation are for the progress of these young, orphaned children as they learn the advantages of computer applications and internet browsing. The Foundation believes that learning how to utilize the computer properly will open the door to a lot of opportunities. In addition, computer knowledge can also be beneficial for passing university college and having access to many job opportunities for these young children in the future.

#TeddyBear4Hold

Mary K. Yap Foundation believes that every child should be shared with love, care, and proper guidance, especially the vulnerable orphans. Mary K. Yap Foundation introduced an annual program which aims the Myanmar orphans to feel loved and secure through “One Stuff Animal Project.” The program initially started in 2015 and recently renamed as  #TeddyBear4Hold serving as one of the Foundation’s Donate to Impact initiatives that has been a continuous activity every year.

The #TeddyBear4Hold program aims to give the orphans one stuffed toy each for them to have something to hold at night. We let the orphans believe and know that there are people who love them and will support them. Empowering these orphans through a single act can mean a huge thing. You, too, can make an orphan believe in a hopeful future ahead of them.

It is a great pleasure when you contribute something to somebody when they need it the most. Mary K. Yap Foundation has been supporting orphans across Myanmar for over 20 years. Out of many other programs, Mary K. Yap started with the One-stuff-animal project which fosters positive connection and social development for the undermined children who need the most attention. 

The primary objective is for the orphans to feel not alone and reinforce that they have something in their hands to hold anytime they feel vulnerable as they have no parents to hug. Please join the Mary K. Yap Foundation to continue promoting a #TeddyBear4Hold campaign to extend unlimited hugs at night.

Food and Health For Orphans

There is no better feeling than bringing hope to someone’s life, especially in the life of an orphan. These children are the most vulnerable people in the world. They are the persons without parents and guardians who can take care of them and feed them properly. 

Myanmar, also known as Burma, has a fifty-three million population. Considering the country’s current political transition, Myanmar needs tremendous help in health care. A greater population, especially children, needs regular consultation and boosts shots that have not yet been readily available.

Orphaned children depend on the orphanage and the staff to take care of them. However, supplies from the orphanages and other donations are insufficient for all the orphans and staff. They need more assistance and supplies for it to be adequate to accommodate all the children. 

Mary K. Yap Foundation organizes a food supply donation to every orphanage in Myanmar as part of our Donate to Impact #NourishHope2024 campaign. This program focuses on helping the orphanages have sufficient rice and food to feed the orphans and the orphanage staff. Mary K. Yap Foundation is donating monthly to orphanages like Galilee Orphanage. The foundation sends out bags of rice and other food supplies and helps the orphanages feed the orphans proper and nutritious food. The foundation will also focus on the orphan’s health and well-being, including annual health check-ups and vaccination plans with our medical professional partners. The health checks efforts are part of our organization’s Donate to Impact #LifeLine2025 campaign initiatives to keep our orphan children safe and healthy.

With this Food and Health Development Plan in collaboration with our corporate partners, Mary K. Yap Foundation hopes that a vast number of orphans will be fed properly and will help lessen the number of malnourished children. We strive for the children to grow well and remain healthy to prosper as young responsible and become independent citizens of their country.

Window of Opportunities

Mary K. Yap Foundation believes that language is the primary source of communication. Therefore, learning the English language opens the door to many opportunities as this is the Universal language used by many. 

 

As

part of the Mary K. Yap Foundation’s ongoing efforts to transform the lives of orphaned children, we organize a year-run program that offers a “Basic English for You” program.  We supply financial assistance to Myanmar orphaned children ages 10 – 16 to study English at a young age. This program is part of the #Each1TeachOne2024 Donate to Impact initiative campaign that aims to teach children as young as 10 to learn the English language basics and become exposed to using and understanding the language.

The “Basic English for You” is a 3-month class in which selected children will have an opportunity to have basic “English Lessons” to learn and hopefully progress and reach the goal of the intermediate level at the end of each program. Mary K. Yap Foundation’s goal is for all the orphans of Myanmar to learn and utilize the English language proficiently to improve their lives. Furthermore, this program aims to teach orphaned children English in the comfort of their orphanages.

The Foundation believes learning English will open the door to many opportunities. For example, it can be beneficial for passing university college exams and having access to many job opportunities for these young children.

High School Diploma

Together with our educational partners, the Mary K. Yap Foundation organized a High School Diploma program that delivers innovative opportunities to every orphaned student from Grade 8 (age 14) to Grade 10 (age 16).

The High School Diploma program is part of our organization’s Donate to Impact campaign (#H.S.Diploma2024) which commits to supporting financial assistance to academically inspired orphaned children. In addition, it aims to bring the best attention to those talented orphans going through their last three years of high school curriculum studies in Myanmar.

The High School Diploma extends children proper guidance, training, and after-school tuition classes, molding them into better individuals.  The increased accessibility to educational support will provide the opportunity to advance academically and socially during the last three high school years (Grades 8 to 10).  This extra attention will accelerate the requirements needed to keep up with their studies so that they have higher chances of graduating from High School.

Grade 10th is the key to opening every opportunity. Mary K. Yap Foundation takes care of all educational support so that the children can concentrate on their studies, pass the exam and be ready to face the university. 

The success of the “High School Diploma” program will depend on the close partnership between the participating orphanage, the selected orphan students, and the Foundation team. Regular progress reports to keep track of the student’s performances are also available for those participating sponsors and donors who would like to monitor the success.

Please email us at info@marykyapfoundation.org if you would like to recommend an orphanage or an orphan student who can benefit from the High School Diploma Program.
