Hope Story - Memories about trip to Myanmar | Memorizing Yangon’s sun shower and people (Part 1)

Memories of the business trip to Myanmar | Reminiscing the sun shower in Yangon and them

 

< Part 1 >

 

Every afternoon sun shower makes the busy streets of Yangon quiet in a moment.

Among the people who were avoiding the rain, the manager of Global Hope held an umbrella, and I was beside him.

 

I visited Myanmar in the last week of October.

I would like to talk about the Myanmar that I felt through my heart and skin for six days.

Even though I experienced just a small part of Myanmar as rainy Yangon, but I could have so beautiful memories regardless of its weather.

I had seen Myanmar on a map several times, so I knew it is on the Indochina Peninsula, and Bangladesh is in the west, and Thailand is in the east.

But I did not know anything about the political and economic situation or the social atmosphere of Myanmar, and I do not yet recognize even at this moment after I came back from there.… I think a week was really short. I enjoyed it that much though.

Myanmar is said to be more than three times larger than the Korean Peninsula. So You can see different attractions of each culture since Myanmar is such a large nation

.

I stayed in Yangon, where many people, including Burmese, Cain, and Mon, live in various harmony.

 

There are Dawn Educational Center (DEC) and Swe Chin Mae (SCM) boarding schools which Global Hope supports in heulaingddaya. On the third day in Yangon, I visited SCM boarding school and met the children who lived there.

On the third day, I realized that a typhoon had arrived because of the heavy rain all night before. Third day...… I felt a little more special than the other days. Because the children and I knew that we are going to meet each other for the first time.

 

Since I had often seen the pictures of children in the Global Hope office, they looked just like their picture! It seemed they just jumped out from the picture.… Saying hello to them, I finally thought “I am in Myanmar!”.

 

 

 

On a business trip, I came up with the book by Lev Vygotsky that I read a few years ago. The book was about a theory that children are educated by social interaction. They see what senior do, follow it, and make it their own.

I thought about it when I saw Swe Chin Mae's children.

I do not think I have a good feature to follow, so I was wondering what I needed to do to them so that they could learn something good. While I was with them, I wanted to give them the best things I could share. With that attitude, I taught classes with language mentoring.

During the classes, we thought about social interaction. And just as they learned by my words, as a young adult, I looked at their eyes and realized that I was learning to build relationships with them.

The next day I visited DEC school where I met pretty children. The relationship I made with them was as precious as the relationship from Swe Chin Mae, although the atmosphere was different from the previous day so we taught different language mentoring.
