The Story of Child Labor in Myanmar

Is Dr. Kennedy working with others who recognize the colonial origins of the education system elsewhere in Asia?   

I have not yet had the opportunity to do so. However, if you know of someone who could help in this capacity then please send me an email.

What is Myanmar’s local non-government capacity for alternatives to the “formal” education system?    

Currently there are several local NGOs that have been working on this. I think this is a very promising way forward – if the government continues to allow it post-coup.

Is there any way we can help them?    

If you are interested in supporting a local NGO and/or sponsoring the next phase of the documentary project, please contact me. We would love to partner with you.
