Building a modern developed society, a sound economic system, providing proper health and
educational systems are some of the objectives and commitments of the government of Myanmar
to its people. Such objectives require the participation of all and the leadership of those with
capacity to improved existing conditions.
The government of Myanmar has taken the leadership in the reconstruction efforts regarding
schools and improving the existing educational system. UNICEF was invited to participate in these
efforts capitalizing on a long presence and knowledge of the country. Seven new CHILD FRIENDLY
SCHOOL models will be some of the end results of this collaboration.
