Education is important. But it is equally important to eat enough food to grow, thrive, and study.. At the COME school in Burma, the children of the Mara people get education as well as food thanks to the aid from Mission East. Here are three accounts on the daily life in Maraland, Chin State, before and after COME school.
The worst floods in decades have hit Burma. "Food is the biggest problem," says Mission East’s partner in one of the affected areas.
Burmese women started to cooperate on selling chilli peppers after receiving training from Mission East. Better knowledge means more profits, and that brings people out of poverty.
Mary Nuso’s desire to study was so deep that she as an eight-year-old embarked on a two-day journey, to reach the COME school. Now she is one of the Mara people’s hopes for the future.
