“I’ve been taking part in volunteering activities since my freshman year at Mandalay University. In a free course on English Language skills conducted for the secondary students in Myit-Nge village in 2018, I noticed their notable improvement at the end of the course, and realized it is beneficial indeed to teach children in summer holidays. Since then, I’ve had a burning desire to conduct large-scale training programs. Soon after this, I was selected as a Participating Youth (Goodwill Ambassador) for the 45th Ship for Southeast Asia and Japanese Youth Program. As part of this program, I got a chance to take part in a discussion section on Quality Education, and also, visited Japan, Brunei, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and witnessed what their universities and high schools have been up to. Such experiences were thought-provoking and I asked myself what I should do when I was back in Myanmar. Then, "Ah-Thone-Lone Education Movement" which happened over 50 years ago popped into my head. This made me think of an issue which is holding most of the Burmese students back - incompetence in English Language and Computer skills as well as not having adequate sports facilities in governments' schools. So, I got an idea and decided to provide the rural children with training programs on English skills, Computer skill, and Sports.” explained Chan Myae Maung (Mandalay University), the Project Leader of “The 21st Century Ah-Thone-Lone Education Movement”, on what inspired him to initiate this movement.
