By minimising our overheads we aim to use virtually all the money we raise to support the children and orphans.
We will only support orphanages, clinics and pre-schools for infants and younger children where we know that the staff are dedicated and that the money they receive is spent on the children and for the direct benefit of the children.

Our logo is based on two toys that children play with in Burma. They are the pyit-tain-taun, which always bounces back when you knock it over, illustrating the resilience of the people of Burma. And the Owl which is wise and has a slot in it’s head for money, because without your donations we cannot help the children in need!
There are no paid staff.
The fund is run entirely by its very small volunteer committee.
We have few overheads. Expenses are kept to a minimum.
Much of our fund raising is undertaken by our Trustees, they are available to give talks about our activities. We are very grateful to individuals and groups of people who have raised funds for our Charity and the children in Burma. We welcome support from anyone who wants raise funds on our behalf. Recent fund raising activities include:
Sponsored runs, walks, swims and cycle rides
Meals, Curry Parties and BBQs
Coffee Mornings and Table Top sales
They are the innocent victims of the adult problems. They are too young to help themselves and need the support of adults to care for them and to run the nurseries, pre-schools and orphanages that feed, clothe and educate them. The children are the future of Burma, and hopefully one day they will become people who can give back to their country and strengthen it.
Who we Support – We are describing the support we give in general terms.
We are supporting or have funded the construction of pre–schools and nurseries in many accessible parts of the country. We support educational and health care and programmes. Look at our Blog or our Facebook Page to see about some recent activities.
How we Support
Before we send funds we check with trusted sources that the staff are dedicated and that any money will be used wisely and for the benefit of the children. Once we have provided support we receive feedback about expenditure and outcomes.
