Kaytharawaddy Nunnery Education
The aspirations of this nunnery are:
- to provide education to the ethnic girls from remote regions where education is far reach
- to teach Buddhism to the girls
- to offer free education to poverty stricken children
- to help cultivate children to have strong will to be educated
- to help fulfill those outstanding students’ goals in life to become well-educated and out of poverty
This nunnery operates a secondary school that offers free education up to 8th grade. The school also provides free text books to those students who can’t afford to buy their own. After 8th grade, the students are transferred to a local High School in Thanlyin. When they start attending high school, nun students typically leave nun-hood to attend the local schools. There are 392 students whom have been supported to continue high school education by this nunnery so far.
