For decades, the Government of Myanmar has spent less than 2% of the national budget on education, which has resulted in the poor management of the education system as a whole.

The lack of systemic provision of education combined with a high poverty rate in conflict-affected areas, which often require children to work in order to contribute to the household budget, explains that many children only achieve a very low level of education; more than half of school-aged children drop out before completing the primary cycle.

PIN has supported the education sector in Myanmar since 2008 through primary school reconstruction following cyclone Nargis but also more recently in 2015-16 through the distribution of school furniture to 20 schools damaged by cyclone Komen and the construction of a temporary learning space in Rakhine State.
