Nomatter the distance, I go when there is a friend doing things for a good cause, that’s why I drive out to the Long Beach area to help Sundie Zin CEO of Within Arms Reach to support her vision in building schools in areas where they are lost. Within Arms Reach held an event at the Convention Room at the Holiday Inn in Long Beach, CA to help raise $20,000 to build a school for children in “Rakhine” State in Burma/Myanmar.

Within Arms Reach will be partnering up with “Myanmar Charity Group” to accomplish the project.
The Existing Building:
The existing school which is located in “Rakhine” State in Burma provides educational services from K – 8th grade to the children in the village. After the 2007 flood the classrooms were heavily damaged. They need an immediate classroom space for 7th and 8th graders for the upcoming year. They also lack space as they have all the different grades placed together and having only small none-sound proof partitions dividing between each area. The lack of space in the current building makes it very uncomfortable for children to learn and attend classes.
The Project Location:
The school will be located in “Seik Tara Village” in northern Rakhine State of Burma/Myanmar. The occupation of the northern Rakhine State communities consist of a mix of farming, livestock rearing, fishing, off-farm activities and casual labor. The total population of this village is 2,900 people.
