Pata School

In Rakhine state we built this school for over 200 Chin children. Initially we paid the teachers wages but the school has been approved and accepted by the education authority who now cover all the running costs. Building this school was a real challenge because of its remote location and in order to get the building materials to the site we had to charter a boat to sail up a narrow stream to within half a mile of the school. The local people all joined in to then carry the building materials to the construction site. This was the first of six schools funded by one of our trustees, James Chilton.
