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.
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 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.
