PDO History


Founded in 1993 by Ven: U Nayaka B.Sc (Chem:) & Ven: U Jawtika B.Sc (Chem:) over seventeen years of private free tuition for children who nearly drop out of school forever due to financial status of their family.


It is situated in Nanshe, in the resettlement residential suburb of North East Mandalay.


           It was named Phaung Daw Oo, Intergrated Education School by Mr Karl Dorning, Program Coordinator, World Vision Myanmar, after his spouse, Mrs Sue Dorning's sentimental trip to Project Site in February 1996, together with UNICEF delegation led by Mrs. CHENXIAOYU, project officer, child welfare services.
            They were the first benefactors who promised to undertake to look for the charitable funds and later assured access for the esimated (9,959.67) US$ dollars for income generation.


We opened this school to offer education to poor children denied access to even the most basic education services as a model of grass roots development, a non-government self-reliance school by specifically targeting children from poor either rural or urban family, orphans, ethnic, abuse, neglect, abandon and poverty-stricken children and for those who could not attend the government shools for various reasons.


We provide access to education for the children from kinder garden up to high school courses that of state curriculum which is accredited by the government.


Both girls and boys attend classes and enrollment is not based towards any specific religion and any fees are not charged.Presently ( 108 ) teachers are employed to teach the ( 5898 ) enrolled children. In order to pay these teachers a basic salary, total funding are obliged to be raised through income generation and occasional donations.


We could manage income generation activities such as mechanical repairs, tools making, welding and photo copying, computer typing.
As the enrollment rate is double-climbing fast, it produces a big impact on us, we had to face a significant double-burden combining with for upgrading school facilities and for employing more teachers, with an adequate salary.
To address the mounted problem we need to your charity fund.



The monthly school expenditure of the school in 2003/2004 academic year is totaled approximately US$ 2300 per month, of which US$ 700 for teachers' salaries, US$ 400 for clinic and US$ 1200 is for other expense, including fuel and light, travelling expenses, furniture, transportation for English speaking teachers, administration charges, photocopier and computer maintenance, teachers' kid, stationary for monthly test and medical care for children etc...


Each year the school spends the equivalent of $10 par student expense, but we ask no money of the parents. They cannot afford over one dollar. If you want to ………… Please contact!


You make charity to the child their lives will be wothwhile and you can make yourself to smile. Without schooling many times they struggle in life. My children have led their lives, toiling along the path of plight. Having no wealth nor health, Having no accommodation nor luxuries. Having no sufficient class rooms nor sanitary.
The children are wild flowers. If we let these precious things float out to endless streets, where there was no school we lose our hope, our love and all our reasons to be.
Make yourself the shelter for those where there live the poorest and loneliness, and lost.
