Projects

Expecting women and newborn

Description

The project started in Mandalay few years ago when a dedicated lady, Kyi Myint Nay , decided to take care of pregnant women who had no access to the hospital because they were not married. So she took care of them in a temporary accommodation and provided everything needed for them and the birth. Afterwards the mother was free to keep it with her or leave him in our hands. The number of cases increased so we decided to move the mother and the baby in our Thanlyin center where basic care and education are provided. If the baby stay here after the mother left then the center will fully take care of him.

Kyi Myint Nay also dedicated her time traveling the country to educate, inform, answer the questions of women encounters in schools or different institutions like western family planning services.

How to participate?

All kind of materiel support is welcome like toys, tools for baby care, baby food or money to support the lodging, the maintenance and the development of our nurseries and the babies life future.


Free from drug

Description

In the golden triangle, the heroin and opium Asian factory, we are developing a new center specially dedicated for people who wants to be free from drug addiction. At the present moment, we are at the very first stage of development and are building infrastructures. With nuns and monks, we are starting the ALMS round to provide the food for the center. The center's aim is to help people detach from addiction and learn to use their life in a better way to change the perceptions of everybody.

How to participate?

There is a materiel need to build the infrastructures and roads so we need skilled and experienced people and eventually people who are interesting to be involved long term in the project.

Animal shelter

Description

The animal shelter started at Hlegu in 2016 to accept any animal without limit of numbers or health conditions and to offer them a safe land where they can live without fear or worry and have medical care and food as much as we can. As there is no limit of number we get more animals than donations but we will keep on accepted them whatever long it is. The final plan is to build a nature reserve where animals are protecting from any harm and predator. We are developing right now the road to make the center more accessible for the doctor and are finishing to build the cow and buffalo shelters, their water ponds and many others facilities.

Currently, there is no electricity which is slowing down everything and increase all the costs.

Today population:
- 900 dogs
- 200 cows
- 80 buffaloes
- 70 cats
- 50 goats
- 30 chickens
- 17 pigs
- 3 bears
- 2 foxes 

How to participate?

Since the Burmese culture is not oriented to support the animal life, we are struggling to raise money. People could send cooked or uncooked food directly and skilled people are very welcoming to build suitable animal infrastructures or take care of them. We also welcome volunteers who can dedicate years to this project.


Hlegu

Description

The Hlegu center will be the biggest Thabarwa center in the future with 4 portions of 100 acres each. This area is easily reachable so we already established the animal shelter, the school, the old aged shelter, the second "Good Will" village and the monks residents.

The "Good Will" village is a place to welcome families who can get a piece of land for free after completed a 7 days meditation course. This village is fully supported by Sayadaw Ottamathara and we are aim to develop more schools, markets, living areas and independent shops.

There is currently no electricity even if the infrastructures for it are present already. The roads are present but still quite challenging. The final map of the project will have private residents, supermarkets, a fish market, a fire station, an hotel, a meditation forest, a bigger land for the animal shelter...

How to participate?

Skilled workers, long term teachers, meditaters and good willing mid term volunteers are very welcome. At the moment, it is not a comfortable place to stay but it is a good chance to participate to the development of the center from the beginning. We also want to develop Eco-farming and self sustainable solutions so if you have any experience about it you are also very welcome.




United land donation

Description

Everybody knows how to save money on your bank account but we never think about saving merits.

Sayadaw Ottamathara created a concept of Merits bank in 2015 who help people to save merits for their own credits by donating food, items, money to people in need and therefore to create good actions and karma for themselves.

Based on this concept, we are doing a good deed raising to purchase a 9 acres piece of land that will connect two separated pieces of Thanlyin Thabarwa center. On this land, we are going to build a 16 stories Dhamma Hospital, two resident buildings for meditaters with a dedicated meditation area, a multi education center, a green house, an permaculture complex, a children playground and many others infrastructures.

The lands are becoming extremely expensive around Yangon but we decided to choose this land for Dhamma. Like everybody can give a spoon of rice to the center , we decided to set up a minimal amount of 50 000 kyats, less than 40 US $. At the moment, people are joining forces to raise this amount monthly. Our international volunteers are also participating to it and like them you can join us or create your own group.

Water Treatment system

Description

We are in a very development country so the living conditions are still challenging. The Thanlyin center started with 100 people with his own water system but the population growth since then, today 3400, but not the water system and his sewage system...

We keep on fixing with short term solutions because we cannot afford to buy a complete new structure for a long term use even if the structure is already designed by our engineers.

How to participate?

Any skilled water workers are more than welcome for a long term and of course money also (see United land donation for donations information). This problem will be the same in every new center so there is a constant opportunity for skilled or/and generous people to participate.


Eco projects

Description

Myanmar is opening recently and lacking of knowledge and technology about self sustainable solutions, Eco-farming projects, recycling factories and others environment issues.

The center has a lot of empty land and is ready to welcome any initiative about this problematic.

How to participate?

Come and stay :)


Multi educational university

Description

Sayadaw Ottamathara wants to provide education in a wide sense from kinder garden to university including Buddhist, personal, nature and morality education. We aim to provide education to Myanmar citizen as well as foreigner students.

How to participate?

We need long term patient teachers, students and workers for the infrastructures.
