Aye Yeik Mon Orphanage

Aye Yeik Mon is an orphanage for girls only, located in the city of Mandalay in Burma, and provides housing and assistance for more than 200 girls.

Grand Circle Foundation first partnered with the orphanage in 2011 when we installed four Asian-style toilets. The Foundation has since made strides through the generous donations we've received. In the following years, we've replaced the roof, renovated the dormitory, and provided new mattresses for the students. We've also purchases 60 new beds, 20 sets of tables and chairs, and 60 sets of drapes.

Myin Ka Primary School

In 2013, Myin Ka Primary School became Grand Circle Foundation's newest partner in Burma. Since our partnership, we've installed two Asian-style toilets at the school. The prospects of this new partnership are bright. The foundation looks forward to the future in lending much-needed support to the students at Myin Ka Primary School.

Myin Ma Htie Village Middle School

By funding improvements in local schools and orphanages, Grand Circle Foundation's World Classroom initiative is focused on supporting society's most precious resources: its children. The Foundation first partnered with Burma's Ma Htie Village School in the beginning of 2012. The school serves more than 300 children (from kindergarten to Grade 9) of the Danu hill tribe. Since our partnership, we installed two Asian-style toilets and a water purification tank.
